Suffering

Contend with my enemies, oh Lord. -- Psalm 35

The good fruit is good, but the bad is so bad, it cannot be eaten. -- Jeremiah 24:3

Why does God still blame us and show his wrath? -- Romans 9

"Who sinned -- this man or his parents -- that he was born blind?" -- John 9:1

There's plenty of Scripture to resonate with those who are suffering; all kinds of invective, lamentation, and anguished questioning for those who need to vent. And the answers aren't always clear. But God is all-powerful, and all-loving, and somehow that must make the pieces fit together, somehow, whether now, or in the final reckoning.
