The Way It Is

Sometimes things come into our lives, and we just know it's not supposed to be this way.

And we don't get it. We know God is good and He is there, but we still don't get it. Here's my proposition: We don't need to get it.

No, this world isn't the way it should be. It hasn't been since man rebelled in the garden of Eden. Sometimes things hurt so badly we can physically feel our emotional pain. Sometimes we wish we didn't have to know how bad the world can really be sometimes. Sometimes we don't understand what God's doing ...

... but our circumstances change nothing.

God is still God. He is still eternally good, and holy.

We can still trust God in the hard times. Look at the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). When we walk with God we can have joy and peace ... even in our pain.

I'm guessing there are some things that will come into each of our lives that will never make sense to us. But even when I don't understand why God has allowed something, I will not stop trusting Him.

How can I expect to fully understand the mind of God? It's impossible.

But when I don't understand, I know that He does. Even if He never chooses to show me why, I will cling to the fact that He knows.

God is true, no matter what happens.
