The Question we are Afraid to Ask
This post touches on a question we don’t want to think about. Yet life will certainly bring circumstances that force us to face it. It is a question that troubled me for a year after my granddaughter got lost in the Colorado mountain wilderness.
In my book fully alive I interviewed people who had faced unthinkable loss, and had to struggle with this question. Their stories were agonizingly honest, sad and powerfully inspiring.
If tragedy were to strike close to home, you lost your family or a child, could you still believe that God is a good God? Could you still encourage other people to trust him? I am sure some of you have had to face this dilemma. Regardless of your answer, I would like to hear from you.
