Yep, that’s how I feel, right now in this moment…unraveling plans. When life unravels does that mean that God was never a part of the plan? Does it mean the ‘enemy’ is winning? Not enough faith? Not enough prayers? Just life?
One thing I have absolutely learned through life is that sometimes I may never understand or know why God allows bad things. The only guarantee is that God remains in control through what appears as earthly chaos. I know He desires that I respond to ‘unraveling’ with grace and assurance in Him that He remains God and that I am not and that His enemy long ago lost the battle AND greater is He within me than he that is within the world.
In a world where planes fly into mountains ending the life of so many people my struggle today seems pretty small. I am so thankful that God hears the cries and comforts the heartache of those who’ve lost loved ones on the side of a mountain and He has the ability to strengthen me in my much lesser…. need this night.
I trust He hears all of our prayers, cries and sighs of striving to live this life and I am SO grateful this life isn’t all there is but while I am here I will press on…
