GOD SEES THE TRUTH BUT WAITS

by Leo Tolstoy

In "God See The Truth But Waits", a man is imprisoned after he is wrongfully accused of murder. This is a emotional story of acceptance and forgiveness -- acceptance of the failings of yourself and others and the strength to forgive even when understanding is beyond your grasp. All I could think about when I finished this story was something my late Aunt Cathy used to often say. "God always answers your prayers. It's just that sometimes the answer is 'no'."

Read "God Sees The Truth But Waits" here.

I loved your Aunt Cathy's comment! That is so apt and so common sensical!!! Tolstoy is one of my favorite authors I grew up reading.
