One of life’s most difficult struggles is acceptance without understanding.
There are many things in our lives going on right now that honestly don’t make sense.
Why did I mess up in this class?
Why did he or she break up with me?
Why do I have mental illness?
Why do I have cancer?
The list goes on and on…
Abandoning ourselves to God’s will is the key to the Christian life.
We all seem to wish God’s will aligned with our will.
Basically, we all want understanding.
If I’m going to suffer through x I want to know the reason for it.
As Christian’s we plead to God with anxious prayers.
Show me a sign Lord.
Help me to understand.
Let me see why.
And most times we feel like an answer does not come.
The reason being, God is telling us to trust him.
Like an infant trusts a father to pick them up and carry them, so must we trust Jesus in this way.
It seems so passive, so simple. Yet, I believe abandonment is more active than we realize. We must continuously choose to let go of our will for our life and trust the flow of God’s grace.
This takes some grit.
So keep moving forward without a clear understanding.
That is OKAY.
If you seek His Kingdom above all else, everything will fall into place.
This is a promise.
