How many times have we asked the question...."But Why Lord"
There is something within all of us that seeks immediate answers. It's as if we walk around with a sign in our hand that reads.... IMMEDIATE ANSWERS NEEDED NOW!
"Why"...... How many of ask this question when things are in our favor?
Do we ask 'WHY' when God heals us from a terrible illness? Do we ask "But Why" we we get a raise? And...how many people have ever asked "Why Me Lord" when they win a million dollar lottery?
It is when we are not comfortable with the results of life that we ask..."Why Lord, Why did this happen. Why are things this way?" It is so easy to blame God for bad results!!
God's word says....."Be Still And Know That I Am God" ......this is exactly what we are suppose to do!
We must believe that God LOVES us!! He hears our prayers, He knows our needs and it is His desire for us to TRUST HIM.
We simply need to embrace our Heavenly Father and lean on Him when we are overcome with that question of "Why"
I have been guilty numerous times of failing to "Be Still and Trust God" ............................
I believe that God could have changed the story in my family's life,....but for some reason, He has taken us through some deep, deep valleys in order for us to get where we are now..."Why"....I don't know, but I do know that no matter how deep the valley, He has never let go of our hands!
The one true thing that I have learned over the past few years is that ........When I give my "Worries and my Why's" to God, I experience a warm Peace that surrounds every part of my being.
God wraps me in His Blanket of Love even when I question HIS Ways. How wonderful is that?
Remind me some day to share with you just how beautiful it can be to rise up out of a valley with God holding your hand!
