Many Are the Afflictions of the Righteous

"God does not come to us in nicely defined, rationally explained, thought categories.  God does not fit Himself into our theological text books.  The Hebrew God breaks all the rules.  He is near, yet transcendent; clothed in human form, yet holy; more terrifying than can be imagined, yet compassionate; invisible, yet revealed; judging, yet merciful; sovereign, yet humble. No matter where you look, God breaks the molds." Skip Moen

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him from them all.  Psalm 34:19

Then I would be comforted by this one thing: Even through all this pain, I never refused to obey the commands of the Holy One. Job 6:10
