We often equate love with happiness, which make sense. But love also has a side to it that doesn’t give a person whatever they want, just so they won’t have to suffer.
This is really difficult to comprehend or accept, when our child dies, especially if there was suffering involved. If God loved us, why doesn’t He step in and stop the suffering and answer our prayers of protection over our children?
That is what this episode tackles, by looking at an email exchange from a mom with these questions.
