RE: It's OK to Say, "I'm Not OK."
Lovely piece:) I find it interesting how 'this broken world' leaves you wondering how people can get through life without faith that in the existence of a caring God. To me, this broken world is evidence that a caring God cannot exist. Maybe some form of indifferent deity who set the universe running and now no longer takes any interest in it exists, but I just cannot reconcile the pain and hurt that exists in this world with the existence of an all-powerful being who is supposed to be loving.
But that is just how things seem from the perspective of my own life experience. Others may come to a different conclusion and that is cool.
