Have you ever just wondered?
I heard someone say the other day, "What was God thinking when this happen"? I stood there with tears in my eyes. It was a statement and not a question. It lead me into wonder too.
The Bible speaks of this:
Proverbs 3:5-6 New Living Translation (NLT)5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT ~
I don't have all the answers in life. I wonder about things too and my heart often hurts with things I see in life. I know that not all prayers get answered the way we want or the way we think it should. I don't know why God gives and God takes away. I know to trust God with all my heart and to lean not to my own understanding.
I got a message from a friend who just needed to vent. Not about anyone but herself and the wonder of things. In the big picture of life, we must balance out our time and thoughts to right thinking. I would like to relate life to a bridge. On one side is the past and you need to cross over some water to get to the other side. Much like Moses did at the sea and the people followed, only you have a road. We must trust God in crossing that bridge of life to the unknown. The God who created you, is able to keep you safe and a new day brings new beginnings.
Romans 15:13 New Living Translation (NLT)
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
When we are young in the Lord or even older in the Lord, there are times of wonder my friend. Let you wonder not carry you away from hope in trusting God. I had someone else make a statement: It's not all about faith. In life, there are real situations that brings tears to our hearts and wonder begins again. Today, I just can't seem to get the word wonder off my heart. I do wonder about things in life, but I trust God more than my wonder. I must push away one thought that leads quickly to another negative one. I'm going to pray now:
God, I thank you for who reads this blog. I know that your holy spirit has connected us and nothing is by chance. I know someone reading this needs to heart this now. You are a God of completion and you want our lives to feel joy and peace as we trust you. There are things in life that will never make sense to a human brain, but your will continues. God as we have free will in life, let our lives trust you with all things. Help us in our unbelief at times and move toward your freedom of thinking, plus living. Help us as we take a deep breathe and count blessings while tears may flow. It is through it all, that we learn to become better or bitter people. I pray largely for the readers of my blog, their family and friends. The circle of life continues and our example matters. Help us to overflow with confident hope in you! Send people into the path of others today to bless them, help them and share hope. AMEN
Crossing from side to other is not always easy but necessary. As change entered your lives, my prayers continue because I know that someone prayed for me or I wouldn't be writing this right now. Prayers do matter and it changes us which changing things!
Yes, my wonder continues at times, but I trust the Lord with all my heart!
