A lot of questions

by Sally I Kennedy

 

If I live to be a hundred, there are some things I will never understand.

 

Why do some people live, and some die?

Why do some people have debilitating diseases and others, perfect health?

Why do some have loads of money and others struggle to survive?

Why do some get caught and others go free?

Why do some people recover and get well, others don’t?

 

Don’t we all wonder about these questions?  I do, from time to time, and my answer is always the same, “I don’t know.”  I don’t know much, and even less the older I get.  My list of questions I want to ask when I get to heaven is pretty long.

 

Jesus said we will surely have troubles here on earth, but to be undaunted and confident because He has overcome the world’s power to harm us permanently.

 

Bottom-line, the answer to all these questions really is- hang onto the promise, and hold onto the Lord. 

 

“I have told you these things,

so that in Me you may have peace.”

John 16:33
