I am trying to support a friend of mine who is going through a very rough time right now where it seems like the world is crumbling. Long story short, she finally summoned the strength to cut off ties with a boyfriend of eight years who became a heroin addict and emotionally manipulated her, she suffers from a genetic illness along with multiple family members, and her grandmother’s health is declining and grandfather is in the end stages of cancer. To add insult to injury one of her friends just passed away unexpectedly in their early 20’s. I lend her my prayers and support and let her know this even when there are times she wants to cut herself off from the world. People tend to come to me because they know I am strong in my faith. One of the things she asks is why God allows such things to happen. I cannot give a solid answer to this. Please help, and any prayers are greatly appreciated.
