My 45-year-young cousin lay dying 150 miles away.
I'd only recently moved to the area and hadn't seen him for years, so I prayed someone nearby would share the Gospel with him. But I felt God telling me to go.
I left immediately, shared the Lord with him, and he passed away the next day.
But his sister wasn't buying it. "How can I believe in a God who'd let my brother die so young?"
I didn't know what to say, but I was determined to find an answer to the troubling question "Why does God allow pain and suffering?"
After months of study, I concluded there's no satisfactory answer here on earth.
But there's a truth that allows us to wait for the answer: God is loving, good, wise, and 100% trustworthy.
"For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."
1 Corinthians 13:12
