I’m going to be honest with you guys. I’ve been wrestling lately with trying to make sense of things and constantly coming up empty. What is it in your life that just doesn’t make sense?
Maybe the job wasn’t what you thought it’d be. Maybe a relationship formed that’s confusing or ended without reason. Maybe an illness came out of nowhere or an unexpected tragedy just entered your life. Maybe it wasn’t recent, maybe it’s something you’ve been battling for awhile or trying to get through but fall short every time the cycle comes back.
We can spend so much time worrying over and overthinking to make sense of irrational things.
But maybe clarity in a situation isn’t facts, an unseen truth, or a frame of mind; maybe clarity is being content in the present unknown and seeing things the way God sees them.
What if we stopped thinking about the what ifs and started looking at the what is? What if we decided that instead of living in our heads imagining every possible outcome, we looked at what we could do in the moment? What if we stopped worrying and started praying?
Not everything in life is going to make sense, and that’s okay. Because if everything did make sense, we wouldn’t need faith to believe in what’s true.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” -Isaiah 43:2
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” -Proverbs 3:5-6
