- C.S. Lewis
I think about things all the time... my mind wandering into the spaces that remind me of my smallness and make me question my place in the world. Why are things difficult, and for such a long time?
I would never 'really' compare myself to Job of the Bible, but I would say that I've definitely experienced many "Job moments" in my life, as we all have.
These moments always lead to questions and more questions, and inevitably into the place that makes you question IT ALL.
Such is the time in my life. Granted, I am not bitter, nor do I question the greater things..... namely, the existence of God or the greater hope of afterlife, Heaven, eternity, etc. No, I wonder even today.....even when things seem to be on better track than ever. I wonder even today about who I met yesterday and how that may or may not work into my life. I wonder even today about the why of what I call "the tricky path"..... meaning WHY do we have to take the road not only FAR LESS TRAVELED, but far more serpentine?
It's a conundrum, this thing called trust and faith. This thing that I choose to believe in and walk in. This thing that will send us to another country and culture. This thing that has a plan.
Know that this thing called Faith is one incredible and glorious thing. You must persist. You must withstand. When you do, it will be revealed.
