Today, I've had a long talk with a friend, whom I guess I would describe as disappointed. It's understandable. He and his family have had a lot thrown at them the past couple of years -- in the realms of health, economics, relationships and more. And the engineer in me needed to keep being reminded to shut up, listen and not try to fix it.
My friend and I are in agreement that God is good. At least in principle. But, for him right now, it sure doesn't feel like God is treating him very well.
