When God Is Silent

"Where was God when that bad thing happened to you?" asked Sunday's preacher. The message addressed the subject of God's people suffering, while He remains silent - the text: Romans 8:28, "All things work together for good to them that love God." It has never occurred to me to get angry at God, when rightly, humanly speaking, I could be - or at least, be perturbed even in the hardest situation. Whatever the bad thing - He is there. Why I've been blessed in this way I do not know. The pastor cited for illustration the stunning true story of David and Svea Flood. They did not experience the same, but their story shows that God was there.
