Over the weekend I read, The Novelist by Angela Hunt. It is a cleverly written book which I’ll review later but for now I want to share this quote with you. My hope is that you will think about the times you have felt this way and feel comforted knowing that others have felt the same.

Hunt has the protagonist, a Christian mother struggling with her troubled son say,

“How many times in the last few days have I looked toward heaven and demanded to know why I’ve been dealt such a difficult hand? … I don’t know. I don’t understand. And I don’t like not knowing and not understanding. I want the details to be spelled out; I want the boundaries of my life path painted in fluorescent orange with easy-to-read road sings along the way.” Pg. 257
