I don’t understand
I don’t understand the evil in the world, the heartache, tragedy, and terrible things that happen. I don’t understand the meanness of people. I don’t understand illness that strikes innocent babies and children. I don’t understand so many things that frustrate and leave me reeling and heartsick.
I don’t understand…
But, I do know God is good, He is just and righteous, He is compassionate and merciful. I know God is loving and even beyond loving because He is love and loves with unfailing love. I know that God will one day make all things right, that evil will be punished, and life will be restored into eternal life.
I don’t understand, I can’t understand many things, but I can stand on the truth of God. And, someday soon everything will make sense and all will be made right. God will destroy evil, and those who love God, follow His Son Jesus Christ will be in paradise.
God Himself will wipe away every tear from our eyes. Death will not exist, and there will no longer be mourning, or crying, or pain, and all will be made new.
Heavenly Father, I don’t understand so many things and so many days it’s hard to stand. But, I will stand on the truth of Your unfailing love. Thank You that one day everything will make sense and You will make everything right and all right.
Understanding the things that happen, the heartache and pain in this world is difficult. We can’t see the big picture, but we can be assured one day, all will become clear in the light of our Father’s love.
“From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You are my rock and my fortress; for Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.”
“For the Lord is good. His loyal love endures, and he is faithful through all generations. The Lord is merciful and compassionate; he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love.”
“God will take away all their tears. There will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All the old things have passed away.”

Before I was saved, I didn’t read much because I don’t understand what I am reading but now God opens my blind eyes to understand the Bible! He showed me that He can do anything and that I’m helpless without Him. God is powerful and He loves me this I know! God bless you, sweet friend. Enjoy your visit with your precious son. My heart is very happy knowing that your son is visiting you right now. Blessings to you and your family. ((hugs))
Thank you, sweet Tess. I’m so grateful God opened our blind eyes to see Him and His truth! Oh, we are so blessed to be His! Blessings and BIG hugs to you, precious friend! XOXO
Seems you and I had the same thing on our heart this week. My post this week is very similar to yours. Love your words “I can’t understand many things, but I can stand on the Word of God.” AMEN!
I saw your post, sweet Wendy and noticed the similarities God had laid on your heart. Even in these tumultuous times, I am standing firm with you on the solid rock of Jesus. Love you too, sweet friend!
