Why did I get sick?

Good question.

God’s goodness does not mean we will not get hurt.

Not in this fallen world, anyway.

His goodness goes deeper than that….

… Sickness before death is a very appropriate thing

And I think those who don’t have it miss one of God’s mercies.

–from a letter published in Phil Yancey s book reaching for the invisible god
