As the saying goes, "God works in mysterious ways." It's supposed to be a way to get you to see some sort of silver lining or good side of a bad thing that happens to you.
My question is: why does he get to do that? None of the REST of us get to work in mysterious ways.
Just once, when one of my too-many bosses asks me why I made a certain judgment call, I'd like to say: "Be patient. Emily works in mysterious ways."
If I said that, I'd surely be fired. And go to hell. Not sure which one is worse.
