Grieving and Unanswered Prayers
The following is an excerpt from Dancing Alone: Learning to Live Again:
“M shrugged and said, “I don’t know why God answers some prayers and others are unanswered, Ray. No one knows. I don’t know why good people suffer and bad people thrive. I don’t know, and I have no answers. I know you’re angry. You’re not the first person to be mad at God, and you won’t be the last. You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you’re loved. When you open your eyes to love, and you will, you will see little flowers of love coming your way in unexpected ways. It may be a stranger who asks you casually how you’re doing. It may be a neighbor doing something nice for you. I don’t know. I received thousands of love flowers—that’s what I call them—and, I’m still receiving them.”
