My friend Jowi asked me to go to his house so he could show me how to pack, what to bring, and explain some other important facts of the trip. I was so excited. A lot of good things came out of that trip, a lot of things to write about, it was a great experience. I’m going to share all of those in future articles, but allow me to focus on the fact that I had a lot of questions and comments.
The same thing happens sometimes with my relationship with God. I, sometimes, have a lot of questions, particularly about me and my situation. Who am I? What do You have for me? What is my destiny? What is my potential? Am I alone? Who are You sending to me? What can I do? How should I handle this situation? How should I go forward? What if I go back for just a second? What is it? Am I in a holding, stand by pattern or is it the enemy fighting me? Are You trying to teach me a lesson? What tools are You providing? Are You here with me? Am I well equipped? How far can I go? How fast should I move? How much can I get? Will You teach me who I am?
I need to know, because I don’t want to go around imitating my friends, co-workers, my spouse, my pastor or my parents. Am I worthy of Your favor? Are You the one leading me? Where could I go? Where could I run? Could I fly away? How high should I fly? Even if I could sail to the edge of the sea, will You be there with me? Will you find me? Will I need the wind? Will I ever be free?
Tell me more about You, I want to know who you are. While You reveal yourself to me, teach me who I am so I could be happy being myself.
Among all of my questions there is not a single why question. I don’t want to ask ‘why’ I would rather ask ‘what’. ‘What is it that You want me to learn from this?’ vs. ‘Why am I going through this?’
Do I still have time? Do You believe in me? I serve a God who is timeless, time can not contain Him. My God filled eternity. A God who is willing to go to the deepest place just to be with me. Even if I try to hide, He will find me, that’s my God. A God that is not bothered by my constant questions. A God willing to answer all of them at the right time. Death has lost its power against my God, there is no power greater than His love for me. I can not explain how He came to love me. The only thing I can say is that nothing, NOTHING is beyond my God. Amen.© 2002 - 2018, AnswersForMe.org. All rights reserved. Click here for content usage information.
