In Other Words

"If we could understand everything God does, then He'd have to be a small god--small enough to fit in our little minds."

~ Randy Alcorn ~
There are plenty of times when I so wish I could understand what God is doing in my life or someone else's. We can see the little steps as we make them, but oh to know the big picture. To be able to step out of this world and to see the grand plan in its entirety. Just about everything would make sense and there wouldn't be anymore wondering or confusion.

I know I thought that when my Mom passed away back in August of 2001 and then to tack on 9/11 just a month later. I kept asking, "Why God? Why?!" I had enough faith to know that everything was happening for a reason but I wanted to know what that reason was. Was that too much to ask? Well, yes it was too much to ask.

If I were given the ability to see all of God's plan laid out, how would God be mighty? How would he be worthy of my worship and adoration? He wouldn't be some awesome God for me to seek after. He would be inside my mind and if he only "fit in our little minds" there would be no reason for me to seek after him.

As long as there are questions unanswered and not understood I will always seek after God. I will pray and ask for wisdom and guidance. I am sure I will always want to know the reason for why certain things have occurred and perhaps I will receive answers here and there but I know that I will never know the full answer until I reach eternity. Until then I will follow my Father and just trust Him because I KNOW he knows best.

Truly the only thing that makes sense in a world that doesn't make sense is seeking and worshipping our heavenly Father!
