“Even as we cling to the promises of divine truth, we scrutinize our natural world for answers that require supernatural solutions. Somehow we inherently believe that if we can understand the motivation and contextualization of our crisis, then we can contain it, reduce it, and eliminate it.” (Author Unknown)
It’s encouraging to know that this is a normal, not sinful, lacking faith response.
Whether we suffer due to our own choices or because of life’s tragedies, God is in it, using it to draw us closer to Him and build our character. He wants to comfort us.
I can rest there and allow the grief,
“For we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
II Corinthians 4:8-9
Where are you in grief or in process? What has God promised?
