Trying to Understand
October 12, 2019
I have struggled a lot in the nearly three years that I have been in the desert. I do not know why I got sent here, and I do not like it here on most days. I was listening to some music on the radio earlier this week and found out that California is having some major power outages effecting nearly a million people. I have tried several times to go back to California and have been unsuccessful, for a brief moment I was thankful for being in the desert. I think of this verse:
“For my thoughtsare not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God’s ways are bigger than our ways, and many times we do not understand it, but somehow we need to trust that God knows best.
Father in Heaven, thank You that Your ways are better, even when we do not understand it. Please help us to understand what You want for our lives, and to be confident in You for all things.
