Why Does God Allow Us to Live in Pain?

April 3, 2012

“I’ve had an eating disorder for as long as I can remember, and I totally cringe when someone tries to encourage me by saying, “God doesn’t waste our pain.” It makes me wonder, what the hell is he doing with my pain? I mean, I’m living a total nightmare every day, and if he’s so strong and mighty, why doesn’t he just deliver me? Didn’t he used to do stuff like that? I don’t understand why he would want any of us to live in pain.”
