GOD ~ WHY?
God answers by saying like any good parent, "Don't ask why, but trust me".
Matthew 7:7-12 New International Version (NIV)
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Sometimes I read the Bible and then I wonder. But God, I did ask and it wasn't answered the way I thought. But God, I did ask again and it wasn't answered the way I thought. But Sparkie, I did hear you and I'm in control of all things. Don't question but trust the process of change, just trust me. Well my friends, trusting God is easier said than done. Especially when it's you waiting for answers quickly. I get the big picture of trust, caring, and allowing God freedom to run my life. Yet, I believe in miracles.

Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
I am human and I have been taught to figure things out. I have been taught to raise my hand if I have a question and someone will answer that question. I have been taught to wait in lines and taking my turn with things. In all my trusting God, I have been taught that my timing isn't God's timing. Trusting him, leaning not to my own understanding, but knowing God is able!
How about you today? Feeling that huge overwhelming feeling of why God? I must be honest, some days are truly just hard. I should questions the Lord when I know he is in control and yet I should. I should becomes his love is real and power remains the same. He heals, he gives miracles and he restores a life to a new life in him. Nothing is too big for God and yet we feel so lost at times. In this new day, choose to sound blessings and share life with those you care about please. Give some hugs and thank you's in life. Be that light in a dark world and choose to rest in the plan God has for you. Yet, never giving up on your prayer!
Do your best to see the good in your current situation and praise God in it. It is easy to tell someone else to trust God with all their heart and a little harder for me at times. Yet, through the years of ups and downs, I find God to be real. Real to my soul and real to answer me. Not everything is a miracle and sometimes we must go through a healing process of a physical thing or emotional thing. I find myself writing you to be encouraged and encouraging myself as I write. It's a new day filled with blessings and I choose to look at it that way. Be the example you wish you always had in life and you will find life a lot better. Take off expectations of others and see how God is change your life. As I draw closer to God, I find him right there. I am so happy I met the Lord and he gives me peace within.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
