Isn’t He the God of all comfort? What’s going on?!? When things are so bad we can’t take one more thing, God should step in and give rest, right? So we think and believe. And sometimes God even works that way. But sometimes He doesn’t, and He puts an arduous journey in front of us instead.
God doesn’t always work as we think (or want), but it doesn’t mean He’s not working. Nor does it mean He doesn’t care. For whatever He calls us to, He will, as always, give us what we need for the journey. A journe to a place where we can get perspective and focus.
