Where the world comes to study the Bible

Where Was God?

Izzy Nickless asked me to visit a friend of hers in St. Luke’s Hospital in August, 1987. I took Norm Evans and went to the men’s room. We chatted for a few minutes and I left him a “Steps to Peace With God” booklet and told him I’d be praying for his recovery. He had been cutting trees for firewood and one landed on top of him. He broke some ribs, punctured a lung, and crushed some vertebrae in his back. He was in a good deal of pain, but mending.

When I said I’d be praying for him, he commented, “Where was God a few days ago?” I replied that the very fact he was alive to question God’s existence and care argued that God was there protecting him! - J.U.
