To set the record straight, I don’t think that “punishment” is God’s M.O.
God’s great Heart overflows with love.
That has been believed again and again through the centuries.
After the accident, it got so frickin’ hard for me to steer clear of fear of the Wrath of God.
Like I needed to carry around a lightning rod.
It’s easy to think that when we do something wrong God is eager to punish us.
Why would we think that?
Because we think God is like us, and we are a punishing people!
Despite my battle scars, I have realized that God was not punishing Ron and me for something we’d done that caused Ryan’s death.
Underneath every tragic thing is “Original Love.”
