Meandering Nature of Life

Life often doesn't make sense from our perspective. We are too close to see what God is doing in the world.

Often all of the features of life look out of whack like a broken vase on the floor. In the end there is more to things than we see.

God promises he is working all things for our good. Often life does not seem so.

It is comforting to see the great men of faith in the Old Testament express their confusion toward the nature of life. You see David on the run confused.

You see many prophets and great men of God hopelessly confused on the journey. Often in their moment of triumph they still have no idea what is going on or why things are happening.

The comfort to us is we do not need to worry if we do not see the path or nothing makes sense. To feel confused and bewildered by life does not imply we have not acted faithfully or that we are in the wrong in some sense because our life makes no sense and a Christian brother’s life seems to make sense.
