Why? But Why? Why?
I had a day when that was about all I could ask God.
And then, I played with my three year old grandson, who asked me twice, "Why?" I could feel the frustration building in both of us, mostly because the answer really was, "Because."
And I giggled. I realized how frustrating it can be to answer a three year old. And I realized how frustrated God must get with me.
As I answered my grandson, I knew that I was thinking... if only he would just trust me.... and then I realized, that must be what God is thinking when I keep asking why.
So, I spent the next day saying to God, "I trust you."
It didn't change my desire to know why, it didn't change the challenge of why I was asking why, but it changed my relationship with God.
Trust is one of the deepest parts of a relationship, and sometimes, you just have to trust and stop asking why.
Peace in our journeys,
