I just saw this on a message board at ChristianMingle.com and am befuddled by it. It's a post from a woman in Albuquerque talking about her relationship expectations and troubles. What I REALLY can't even begin to imagine connecting is her description of her troubles and God's reason for them.
HOW? How can a human mind make that kind of jump? I really want to understand, and I consider myself a critical thinker but I can't even speculate on the mental conditioning that would allow for a person to believe that the only possible reason for their suffering is that that's how God wanted them to learn. How is THAT appealing? And then she mentions that she suffered so that her experience can be a testimony to others. Is that supposed to give you a sense of purpose or something?
