When Life Doesn't Make Sense

Ok, so today I am venturing away from our assigned WEGO topic and blogging about something near and dear to my heart today. Ever get frustrated -- no infuriated -- when things seem unfair, when life just makes no sense whatsoever?  That's where I am. I'm currently going through perhaps the greatest trial to ever test my faith, and I can honestly say that nothing rational seems to be happening.
I used to believe in justice and the power of truth, but now I am not so sure. I have known we live in a fallen world, but I am beginning to see just how sinful we have become as a people. I have to say that while I am losing faith in humanity, my faith in God continues to grow. He truly is the Only one Worthy of our trust. He alone will never disappoint. He is my ROCK!

So, where is God when life doesn't make sense? He is still on the throne. Sometimes I think His heart must be grieved even more than mine. Somehow, some way, He will work all things out in this situation for my good and His glory. Right now, I don't see how, but it is this truth that gives me courage to persevere. Not only is God on the throne, but He is also carrying me through this trial. His grace gives me strength and hope.

Please pray that His will be done in my life and in the lives of the people I love. Pray that God will increase our faith in Him as we learn to trust moment by moment.
