Has God Failed You? Dear God .....It is a very Human thing to be the cause and effect of putting something into motion, or being the recipient of an unforeseen out come, like someone driving drunk(the cause) and killing someone,(the effect) an innocent life ended.(the effect) and then blame all their troubles on You because You didn't save or spare them from themselves or their actions . Our world is a finely tuned reality of coexistence, primum nil nocere ("first, do no harm") should be first and foremost in our minds as we live (but that's not the case ) hence we live in a fallen world! hence we see daily a world full of intended and unintended consequences good and bad ! God help those who struggle to overcome the reality of suffering from cause and effect! it would be so satisfying to go on a edictal rant about the Guy who killed my Brother, My Brother was my best friend ! and He was taken from this world the result of cause and effect ! God help me continue to walk in forgiveness ! as I walk on this earth endeavoring to primum nil nocere ("first, do no harm") sincerely

I can Understand why people would feel that way if they have suffered some horrible loss. Personally, I don’t believe God ever fails us. Our prayers are answered, just not in the way we think best. Our Comfort and Our reward are not always in this world.
