6-11

Odyssey of Theodicy

It is a strange fact, clearly biblical—
In this case God’s will is most puzzling:
At times, He moves mountains with miracles,
But may not remove the cup of suffering.

A daughter wrecks her car—climbs out unscathed;
A son, stroke-struck, breathes out—and then is dead.
Our hope in Him is that both shall be raised:
“I am the resurrection and the life,” He said.
