messy faith

Why life gets “messy” and what to do about it

(I painted the picture above on YUPO paper. I have no idea what it’s supposed to be but l like it. It reminds me that life is ambiguous at best,)

I don’t know about you but I find life pretty messy a lot of time.

The perplexities, the questions, the downright confusion. I have a hard time understanding God at these times.

Like when a friend of ours died from lung cancer after having only been diagnosed five weeks prior. Why him?Shouldn’t cancer be reserved for murderers, rapist, terrorists, etc? ( I’m just saying what a lot of people think.)

And yet our friend would have been the first to tell you of his faith and why he still believed in a God who loves\d him.

If your faith seems a bit “messy’ right now, here’s a prayer I found over at tworiversblog.com

“God, sometimes it is so easy to believe and sometimes… I know You are good. I KNOW IT, but sometimes… it just gets so hard to see it. You love me. You want the best for me far more than I even want it for myself. Sometimes I just don’t know how You are working good through the mess this life sometimes tosses me. In those times, as I seek understanding, help me to never lose faith.”

I hope this prayer finds a responding chord in your heart and encourages you in your faith.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
