What were you expecting?

Genesis 1:26 The God said ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground’. niv

Suffering is a strange experience isn’t it? It’s something we try to avoid at all costs but at some point or other we are faced with it’s reality.

Is it the pain we are trying to avoid or is it the expectation that this shouldn’t be happening?

But where does this idea come from? Why is there this expectation that this life should be all sweetness and light without the need to struggle or the need to overcome.

Could it be written somewhere deep within our very being that we know some how, somewhere we were made for more than this?
