Questions when suffering: For what purpose? (Part 4)

Questions enter our mind when we suffer.  “Is God seeking revenge on me?”  “Is God unfair?”  Remember what James 1:5 says: “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” It’s okay to ask God questions;  just ask the [&hellip
