There we have Elisabeth Elliot, from her little book of essays entitled Keep a Quiet Heart, thinking her deep thoughts :o)
She goes on to say;
Some of us know very little of suffering, but we know disappointments and betrayals and losses and bitterness. Are we really meant to thank God for such things? Let's be clear about one thing: God does not cause all the things we don't like. But He does permit them to happen because it is in the fallen world that we humans must learn to walk by faith. He doesn't leave us to ourselves, however. He shares every step. He walked this lonesome road first, He gave Himself for us, He died for us.
I love Elisabeth's straight forward manner.
