Dominic came home from his mother’s funeral today. His mother was only 34 and died suddenly of a rare virus. Sitting in his room amid all the pain and loss he feels, he is troubled by some of the things people said to him at the funeral. One person quoted Romans 8:28 to him, saying that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him” (NIV).

Another mentioned that his mother’s death must have been part of God’s will. While there were many compassionate words spoken, these statements troubled him. How could this work for good? How could this be God’s will? If this is what God is like and this is what His will is, I want nothing to do with it or Him! What would you say to him if you could write him a letter as he sits in his room?
