The God of Disappointed Hopes

Dec 4, 2007

Someone we love died today after a long, painful ordeal with his heart. He needed a new one, you see. And then he finally got one, but never woke up after the surgery. Now he's gone.

It's impossible to know if he would have had more days without the heart-replacement surgery, relying instead on the failing organ he was born with. We'll never know. His wife and kids will never know.

It's hard to believe that a God of miracles didn't (or perhaps wouldn't) intervene in the way we all hoped and prayed He would. It's hard to believe in Him when this kind of thing happens.
