I never realized how easy it was to become bitter towards someone you've never met and know next to nothing about. I put myself in someone else's shoes tonight. And I found myself having a pretend conversation with the person who has given them a lifetime of hurt and questions and confusion.

"Why, God?" I asked. "Why does she have to hurt?"
"She will grow." was the answer.

With trials in a Christian's life, comes growth. And though we may not understand and though we may ask "Why?" over and over again, God still reigns on His throne. And He is still good.

I still don't understand why. And I probably never will. And that imaginary conversation? It is better left unsaid.
