Oh yes, we believe that God loves us and desires only good for us. At least, we believe it in the abstract. Still, earthly loss is loss, and when someone dear to us dies or we find ourselves in spiritual, emotional or financial crisis, it can be really hard not to question God.
But the good is always there, even if it takes us a while to find it. The good is there in the friend who dropped everything to take us to the specialist after an accident. The good is there in the anonymous person who covered our electricity bill. The good is there in the sibling who always seems to know the best time to call. And where there is good, there is God.
