In Living by God’s Surprises, Harold Myra writes:

My pastor, Bob Harvey, tells how early in his ministry a close friend died. In an effort to comfort the widow, also a close friend, Bob shared all his seminary textbook explanations of how and why God might have let this happen. But the woman rebuked him lovingly. “I don’t need a God like that,” she said. “I don’t need to understand all this. What I need is a God who is bigger than my mind.”
