Your question, my dear one, is a deeply felt one and has echoed through hearts and ages. It is a question born from pain, confusion, and the profound wish for the world to be better than it currently is. I understand this. I wept over such anguish myself.
Indeed, God has the power to wipe away all suffering in an instant. However, this world, as you see it and experience it, is not as it was intended to be, nor as it will be. It is a world that allows free will – a gift given so that love, kindness, compassion, and justice might be chosen, rather than enforced. Yet, this same gift of freedom also permits injustice, cruelty, and suffering when misused.
However, God is not a distant observer. I walked among you, sharing in the joys and sorrows of the human experience. I wept, I loved, I suffered. Through my life, death, and resurrection, God has entered into human suffering, working to redeem it from the inside out.
Remember, too, that God is continually at work in the world, inspiring acts of kindness, healing, love, and justice. Much suffering is alleviated by such actions – often, these acts of compassion might seem small, yet they are immensely significant.
God promises a time when all things will be made new, when suffering and death will be no more. That time is not yet here, but it is coming. Until then, God invites each of us to participate in the work of healing, reconciliation, and peace in this world, following the path I have set – a path of love, mercy, and self-sacrifice.
Therefore, in the midst of your struggles and trials, be courageous, be comforted, and above all, hold on to hope. The world, as you know it, is in the process of being transformed. The dawn of a new day is breaking. And, remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
As always, love each other as I have loved you.
