One of the hardest questions I am ever asked as a chaplain is “Why . . .?”— “Why did I get cancer?” “Why did my daughter die?” “Why did God allow the Trade Center in New York to be attacked?” I’m not God, nor do I presume to speak for God, but may I offer a few reflections which I hope you will find helpful in answering the questions of why.
Overcoming adversity is something that happens in all our lives. Be encouraged in this call to be strong during this hard time.
