Today’s guest post is from Amber Quaranta-Leech, my sister. You can read her God Story here. She has good insight into when God doesn’t make sense. I pray her words bless you today.
For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. ~ Jer. 29:11
I. Don’t. Get. God.
I want it all fixed, and I want it fixed right now. I often wonder, since God can, why doesn’t he? Why do friends who long for children continually miscarry and others who don’t deserve to be parents (in my opinion) carry full term? I feel at times like David as he expresses in the Psalms
Why, O Eternal One, are You so far away? Why can’t You be found during troubling times. ~Psalm 10:1
My God, My God, why have You turned Your back on me” Your ears are deaf to my groans. O my God, I cry all day and You are silent; my tears in the night bring no relief. ~Psalm 22:1-2
O Eternal One, lend an ear to my prayer and answer me, for I am weak and wanting. ~Psalm 86:1
Still, You are holy; You make your home on the praises of Israel. Our mothers and fathers trusted in You; they trusted, and You rescued them. They cried out to You for help and were spared; they trusted You and were vindicated. ~Psalm 22:3-5
Clap your hands, all of you; raise your voices joyfully and loudly. Give honor for the True God of the universe; Here’s why: the eternal, the Most High, is awesome and deserves our great respect. He is the great King over everything in this world. ~Psalm 47:1-2
