As I have traveled on this faith journey I have on occasion asked, ‘Why God?’ ‘Why is this happening?’ and through the reading of the Word and in the quiet of my time with God an answer sometimes is revealed. Maybe through the words of a song that comes to mind out of nowhere or in certain verses I am reflecting on. To me to trust in the Lord means I don’t have to get an answer to all my questions because I trust he is working for good in my life and if I am truly honest as I look at my life I have many blessings and just need to focus on gratitude. Eventually I come back to my purpose…To know Him and to make Him known…that is what I believe He has asked of me. May God’s peace be with you.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
