Why God Why?

When I was diagnosed with cancer, I was looking at all the rhetoric about God being in control, and how he has a plan for my suffering... blaah blaah blaaah. I found no comfort in it, but it was all I had to cling to. As I was spouting this to a friend, and going on about the grand things God MUST have planned for me, she said quietly. "not necessarily, it could just because we live in a fallen world."

NOTHING has ever given me so much peace. God didn't make me sick, I didn't have to keep looking for answers as to why a good God would let my body be ravaged by not just the illness, but by the treatments that may or may not keep me alive. I could stop looking for some grand scheme to justify my suffering, and look to getting though the trial.

And oddly, I have found God's grand plan. It's simple: Uphold those that God puts in my path that are walking in that same valley of death that I got through. I don't even have to go searching, they just show up in my life.

It's so simple, and yet so difficult to understand sometimes. I've found the same thing with my health problems though--I'm able to use them to reach and understand others who are also going through similar things. Blessings,
