How did you find comfort in the midst of suffering?a.One of the most significant periods of suffering for me was when I did not have a stable home to live. For over seven years, I was homeless, sleeping on couches of friends, sleeping behind buildings, motel rooms, wherever I could find a place to lay my head. For years, I found no comfort, and I just had to take it all in stride. I was angry at my mother for not letting me stay with her. I was angry in general, which caused my homelessness. Then one night, I found my comfort. I was sleeping in the back of my friend’s Bronco in Oklahoma. That night, there was so much wind and rain, and the Bronco was shaking violently. I cried out to God to protect me from the weather, to save me from what I thought would lead to my death. The second I cried out for him, the Bronco stopped shaking. I felt peace. God had heard my cry and sheltered me from the storm, and within that shelter, I finally found my comfort in mysuffering.2.Briefly summarize the problem of evil and suffering.
