Understanding

 

I must confess. I don't understand. There are certain circumstances and issues where I sit back and whisper, "God, I really don't understand." 

The recent death of my sister...I don't understand.  

The current state of our country...I don't understand.  

How can I love someone so much but totally disagree with their decisions...I don't understand. 

How can parents mistreat or disown their children...I don't understand.  

Why do some of us seem so blind despite the solution to our problems being right in front of our face...I don't understand.  

Why did God create sugar?  I don't understand.  

While I don't always understand, God sees perfectly and knows everything. On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is seeking sand.  

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men liberally and without criticism, and it will be given to him." James 1:5
