Have you ever been asked why or asked why yourself? Why do bad things happen? Why is there divorce? Why do children get sick and die? Why is there physical pain? Why is there cancer? It can go on and on.
I believe there are some things that we cannot know and should not know until we get to Heaven. It is either that it is for our best or that our human minds cannot handle the thought of it. I also believe that as hard as the ‘why’ things are, they build our faith in God. When those things happen, we have to rely on Him. What else is there to hope in? We cannot hope in people who let us down. We cannot hope in this world that will be destroyed. Our only hope is in Jesus.
So when you’re asked why or you ask it yourself, it’s okay to say, “I don’t know. I don’t know why.” It’s okay not to have all the answers. I think most people know we don’t have any answers but are reacting through their pain.
I don’t have all the answers, but I’m so grateful for the One who does.
