Where's God when you need him?

When we are suffering, why is god never there for us? Please answer my question for once.:frowning:

My friend,

If God were not there for you, you would not even exist to be able to ask this question. He knows our needs better than we do. Our lives do not begin with us; they begin with Him. We measure ourselves by His standards; not the other way around.

Know that the blood He shed was truly His and He shed it for our ultimate benefit. Regardless of how we may feel sometimes, He does love us.

Every beat of your heart is His affirmation of you. Listen to it and you are listening to Him. When you begin to thank Him and mean it, you will know His presence,

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
