    Trusting God When Questions Abound

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your path. Proverbs 3:5-6
    In my youth and during the very foundation of my journey with God, I was one of the lucky ones who was encouraged to question and challenge what did not make sense to me. “Faith” was generally where my thinking landed me. There are a great many people who are not given the option to let faith be the answer in their own personal journey as a way of leading them to a deeper understanding and, in turn, spiritual
    frustration becomes a problem.
    As a funeral director I have seen and experienced heartbreak and vulnerability on a level I never could have imagined. “Why” is a question I am forced to consider in my profession more than any other and, unfortunately, there is no answer. We can never know why tragedy strikes or why bad things happen, but knowing God is with us in our suffering has kept me yearning for that inner one-on-one relationship.
    As I have grown and searched for that deeper connection I have learned the answers I seek may never be revealed and I have finally learned to be satisfied with that. I will continue to keep the spirit of questioning and challenging alive in my heart with the belief that my faith alongside the ups and downs of the human experience will guide me to a level of love and trust in God that I can carry with me forever.
    Prayer: Lord God, we know You are with us in our pain and our questioning, our joy and our lack of understanding. Please be a presence within us when we seek answers, strengthening our faith that whatever we do, You will lead us in the right path. Amen.
