I contend that, based upon the belief of an omnipotent creator, that everything is exactly as it is supposed to be. What's more, all possibilities exist until the moment is actualized. I believe there are many paths one can choose or forge that will lead him to a place that is exactly right for them. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that his place will be pleasant. I know it is a difficult concept to grasp, as is the Trinity, but the duality of fate versus free will occurring simultaneously portrays a world that is glorious, yet unfair. People do not suffer equally, despite being equally devout in thought and in action.

I guess one knows exactly where it is that God always wanted them to be, because they are already there. Why did God want me to suffer? It is not fair that 30 years of my life were painfully ripped away from me. However, that is exactly where I was supposed to be. There isn't always a silver lining or reward for the suffering of the innocent. In such cases, I leave it up to God to understand, for I cannot.
