Your Views About God and the Problem of Suffering

What helps me to find some sort of peace with suffering is this image.
Imagine the deer caring for the young fawn dependent on her for survival.
Imagine too, a lioness with her young cubs to feed; they are also dependent
on her for survival. She kills the young fawn to feed her young. The deer

have food. We often get trapped in viewing this through the eyes of the
deer, not the lion. God's view is not our view; he sees the whole picture

he indeed is loving, wise and merciful.
Love in Christ,
Dolores Sleeper
