"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
~ St. John 14:27 (KJV)
It's sad, but it's true. People are always wondering where God is, and how He can allow so much bad to come about. They think: "If God really loved me, He wouldn't have let this happen to me in the first place. He probably doesn't even care." God does indeed care, far much more than we realize. Do you honestly think He takes pleasure in our suffering? I'm sure your parents weren't always there when you got hurt; did that mean they didn't love you?
Furthermore, if God prevented every single bad thing from happening, we wouldn't learn and grow much, would we? Our lives would have no real meaning, would they?
