The Mystery

I'm sitting here at my computer downloading an upgrade. It takes a minute or two and I can hear strange noises coming from the "guts" of the machine. I'm thinking, "I have no clue what's going on inside" and wondering how the 'thing' works. When the download is complete I get a message on the screen informing me that the procedure was successful.

Because I know absolutely nothing about the inner workings of my laptop do I question its existence? Do I throw it out because I can't "figure it out"? NO! You've probably guessed where I'm going with this. Right?

Far too often I don't understand God's dealings with me or with others. When asked to explain an unexpected death, a recently diagnosed disease or a devastating divorce I'm at a loss. Life is filled with mysteries. Things we'll never be able to understand or explain.

But...I choose to believe in and trust the divine Creator who never makes a mistake. The Bible declares, "As for God...his way is perfect" (Psalm 18:30) and I'm ready and willing to accept that...hard as it might be to do so.

I'll never understand how a computer works and why God does some of the things He does but...

I will continue to type away and post on my Pilgrim Scribblings blog or Facebook page, send and receive e-mails and rest in the embrace of a mysterious God who loves me unconditionally.
