God Never Said It Would Be Easy Or Painless

3 John 1:2

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

No God never said life would be easy. There is no where in the bible that says life is a bowl of cherries. Yes, bad things happen to seemingly good people. It is not pleasant. It is painful. It hurts deeply. Many question God or disavow him at this breaking point. It is hard to go through the agony of life or of losing it without sorrow, grief, pain. God promises that he will get you through it. Imagine the pain he went through watching them torture his son. He could have taken all of it back and let things happen a whole different way. Instead he stood by, in pain and misery and watched how cruel mankind can be.
