So I’ll be honest, I’ve haven’t written in awhile, because I am struggling. I am struggling with so many different things right now. I have been questioning God so much. I don’t understand why He allows what He allows sometimes. And I have really wanted to know the answers to why. But today I got a note from an old friend, and God used it to clarify things for me. I don’t need all the answers. For whatever reason, God chooses to allow things in our lives, and we don’t need to know why. As much as we want to know why, He finds it best to not tell us. And He calls us to trust Him. Trust that He knows what He is doing. Trust that He will take care of us. And that trust is called faith. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). And you know what? He doesn’t promise it’ll be easy. But he still asks us to trust and rest in Him.
