God's way...

I agree wholeheartedly with Phil. (Come to think of it I usually do!) Also don't like it when people attribute misfortune such as a miscarriage to God: "It was God's way"...It's another one of those "comfort" statements. Or how about the guy on tv whose house has been spared the effects of a ravaging tornado: "God was watching over me". I just don't like the implication. If that were so then everyone would be spared. Some things are luck. I believe that I should to be thankful but I don't attribute everything (positive or negative) to "God's will".

Even my mom, a devout Catholic thinks the "God doesn't give us more than we can handle" is a bunch of hooey. I believe that we get it and that our faith can HELP us...
