Burn us up.

I continue to wrestle with the circumstances of life. Why does God let stuff happen? Yeah I know all the platitudes and greeting card answers my fellow Christians are quick to give…but some stuff no human answer will satisfy.

My faith is weak compared with theirs for I would bow down to escape far less than being thrown into a fiery furnace.
