Love and Hope versus Fate and Hate

“The conventional explanation, that God sends us the burden because He knows we are strong enough to handle it, has it all wrong. Fate, not God, sends us the problem. When we try to deal with it, we find out that we are not strong. We are weak, we get tired, we get angry, overwhelmed. We begin to wonder how we will ever make it through all the limits of our strength and courage, something unexpected happens. We find reinforcement coming from a source outside of ourselves. And in the knowledge that we are not alone, that God is on our side we manage to go on.” –  Rabbi Harold Kushner

“God is not a dictator of fate and hate; God is the creator of love and hope.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom

“Hope and love that never wavers, but perservers are God-given gifts.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom
