I have to respond to this from my faith view which says that “God is good- all the time”- and also that God is never “no” but always “yes”. Now the “yes” can take different forms: “yes, you can have it now”, “Yes, but be patient” and “I’ve got something better in mind for you.” The last of these options is the most difficult to comprehend as it sometimes involves going through what some have referred to as the Dark Night of the Soul- the place where God seems to be absent- to get to the “better idea” that God has in mind for each person. I’m kind of wandering around in that wilderness right now but I’m looking for the way out and the God who is good- all the time will show me how to get there. I don’t mean that God will actually post a sign (though that happened once) but there will be nudgings sending me in the right direction.
