Ah, another marvelously helpful Christianese
phrase. There's a huge list of them that Christians tend to use when they have nothing insightful or supportive to say, but still want to sound spiritual
. See also, "It's all in God's time
," "It must be God's will
," and "Let go, let God.
All of which are complete trash and do nothing but alienate and patronize the person who's hearing them.
Yet another example of what's gone severely wrong in the Christian church. We'd rather have some nifty little slogan to toss out than take the time to listen, to understand, to hold, and to admit that we don't know why bad things happen to good people...
