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.
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.
