I think about when John the Baptist sent word to Jesus when he (John) was jailed.
Could Jesus have rescued John from jail? Certainly. Did it happen? No.
I think it is the same with us. He has the overarching plan that is usually not well perceived by us humans.
The key is not to become bitter. Many people, when they see bad things happen to good people, reason that there is no God. The mistake in this reasoning, is that we are assuming that we can know better than God.
Waiting involves trust, doesn’t it?!
