pain and suffering Can anyone give me some wise advice on how to answer a client of mine, a lady in her eighties, who suffers severe pain throughout her body continually, extreme breathlessness, and other painful health problems, which limit her life so that it is an effort to move between chair and bed, and she rarely goes outside her house. Not a Christian, not really understanding the concept of God, but she asks me "Why does God want to keep me hanging around like this?" "What use am I to anyone?" and similar questions. I want to give her food for thought, not just glib meaningless answers, as I believe this is an opportunity to give her the Truth, as I believe her time is short. I have prayed for God to help me to answer her wisely.
