"Why" doesn't always matter
Today someone asked me if I've ever been so frustrated that I asked God, "Why?". I struggled with this when I was diagnosed with cancer. I thought about all of the people who go around doing evil to others and live for decades, while I--trying to be a Christian--was suddenly stricken with this horrible problem. What I've learned is that trying to figure out the "why" doesn't really help you to cope. I've also learned that happiness is ALWAYS a choice. No matter what we are experiencing, happiness is still a possibility. Even if the world seems to be falling down around you, the peace of God which surpasses all understanding can make the situation bearable.
