From the outside of our situation, one would think it is horrible.
And that’s understandable. I have a hard time making sense of things myself- we pay all our bills, my husband has a good job, we pray over every decision before we act, and yet somehow, in spite of all those things, we are still without a home and rationing our meals.
I think that the lesson for me here is that God is good, regardless of my circumstances and that while my earthly residence is TBD, my Heavenly home is secure. God has always been faithful to provide in ways I can’t explain or understand. I trust in the Lord completely, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have questions.
Why is my prayer answered this way? Why are we facing hardship in spite of doing everything seemingly well and through prayer? Why?
The simple answer is I don’t know. But God does, and I have prayed that His will be done and that through us he is brought much glory and praise. So that’s my answer; humble myself, accept help when it is offered, and trust that God is working.
