God only ordains our deep disappointment and profound suffering for the sake of far greater joy in the glory he will reveal to us. (Romans 8:18) It is crucial to remind one another of this.
Before we know what Jesus is doing, circumstances can look all wrong. And we are tempted to interpret God's apparent inaction as unloving, when in fact God is loving us in the most profound way he possibly can.
