Just some thoughts...

When I am faced with great sadness or tragedy, I tend to run to my blog.  It’s an easy place for me to put my thoughts into some ramblings to share in hopes of just maybe helping someone, somewhere, in some tiny little way.  Most of my posts on here are filled with our normal day to day happenings but every once in awhile, I truly feel like the Lord gives me a few words to share that are really meant for someone else to read.
Today is one of those days...

Over the last few days and weeks, I have seen so much sadness that some of my friends and loved ones are facing.  Death and sickness and hardships are inevitable in this world but it just seems sometimes to not seem fair.  It’s not fair that someone has to lose their baby before they even get to know her.  And it’s not fair that loveable guy that is everyone’s friend has to leave this world too soon.  And it’s not fair that kids have to be really sick and their parents just have to watch helplessly.  And it’s not fair that some people slip away from their own minds. It’s just not fair.

I don’t know why these things happen and I probably never will.  But I do know that God has a plan for everything and though we may never understand it this side of Heaven, we have to trust in Him.  His plans are so much greater than ours! And there are many times when I just want to act like a little kid and throw my hands up and say really God?  Why this?  Why now?  Why her?  I want to pitch a fit and cry and scream because things aren’t going like I want.  I want to sulk and pout and just plain out get mad.  But I have to stop and remind myself that my God has promised me and everyone else the same thing.  He has promised us great things, to prosper and not harm us, a hope and a future.  It is so hard sometimes to remind myself of this but it is so true. He is in control and He has great plans for each one of us.

This new MercyMe song, “Even If”, is definitely one of my favorites right now.  God may not always answer our prayers in the way we want but He is still in control and His love for us is still greater than anything we can even fathom.  We are going to face hurt and sorrow but He is faithful and I promise you, one day, we will see His mighty plans for it all.  So today for you my friend, I pray for peace and understanding and most of all for comfort in His mighty name.
