When we don’t have a clue

30(I’ve been taking part in the post a day marathon through WordPress. I’ve been going through the alphabet and giving thanks using a letter a day. But I’ve missed my normal posting so I thought I would add another one.)

My last couple of weeks have been stressful because I’ve been perplexed by some situations. And I so prefer not being befuddled.¬†ūüôā

befuddled

It seems to me¬†the more I¬†study the Bible and the more I learn, the more I don’t understand how the world can be the way it is or why some people behave the way they do.

I don’t question¬†God’s love, forgiveness, mercy, grace and all the rest.¬†I’ve been the recipient of too¬†much of it to doubt it.

But as to how all this works out in the rest of the world, I don’t know.The other day during my devotional time I wrote this,

“It’s better to ask¬†the right questions than it is to have the answers.”¬†

questions and answers

questions and answers

Jesus is our example. He was a master “questioner”.¬†He knew asking the right question prompted thought, more so than just handing out answers. He wanted people to learn, not just tell them what to do.

So that’s where I am now on my spiritual journey. Learning to ask the right questions. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. God can handle it.

God bless and I hope you have a good evening.
