Even then, praise God

May 21, 2015

There’s something about being disappointed that is always a bit heartbreaking. When you envision things going one way and they end up going another. It’s strange really since as believers we know everything is in God’s hands. I knew that my trip to Qatar today was completely up to Him yet I still moped about when innumerable unplanned circumstances forced me to head back to my apartment without stepping foot on to a plane. Why do we do this? Why complain when things don’t go our way when we knew all along that you plan and God plans but God is the best of planners? Why do we complain when life is miserable when God hasn’t promised us heaven on earth? Why do we complain about the evil in the world when God told us it would be so? Our only job on earth is to hear and obey, we are not self directed being, we plan -yes, but God’s will is the overarching reality.

“Thy kingdom come they will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
“If it was meant for you the whole world could not come together to keep it from you, if it is not meant for you the whole world could never come together to give it to you”
