The paradox of good and evil coexisting in the presence of a good God challenged my understanding of reality. – from an upcoming piece
I recently wrote the above in a piece for a favorite magazine (I’ll link to it here once it’s released). I’m dreading its publication.
I didn’t want to write this stuff. I wanted someone else to write it so I could read it and know that at least one other person “got” what I was wrestling through and questioning. So I felt less alone. So someone else could offer a few thoughts on how to keep going toward God through it all. Someone else would have done a better job.
But I haven’t found anything, and I process by words, so voilà.
Perhaps there are others writing on these topics and I’ve not run across them yet. If you know of any, please pass the information my way. Stuff like C.S. Lewis and An Unquiet Mind.
As long as what you are afraid of is something evil, you may still hope that the good may come to your rescue. – C.S. Lewis, Perelandra
