I just don't understand!

Hey everyone! Everything is going really good right now! I really like my new job and everything seems to be on the up and up! Thank goodness!! It does feel alot better to be able to tell people how God is working in my life. I have started feeling more comfortable telling alot of this to my ladies sunday school class (I hate talking in front of large groups!!). They are so awesome and understanding and I am really thankful to have them as a part of my church family!! I often do not know what to write about and I don't want to put anything on here just to be doing it. I would like for my blog to be meaningful and helpful to others. Then God inspires me....

Sometimes, I just don't understand why things happen the way they do. I know that it's not for me to understand, but I still wonder and sometimes things bother me. It's just the devil trying to weasel his way into making me doubt God and second guess everything that God has done for me. It is still so hard to not feel some resentment sometimes. I guess instead of beating around the bush, I just need to say it. I don't understand how some people can be so unhappy when they have so much to be thankful for. I don't understand how some people take for granted everything that they have and don't appreciate where they are in their life. I don't understand why some people are so wrapped up in themselves that they don't even realize how their actions are effecting other people. And there are some who just have no clue!! It's really sad. I know I'm not perfect and I don't know everyone's situation but I pray that God can soften my heart in these instances. As much as I want to just say "Are you kidding me?!?", I want God to put the right words in my mouth to encourage everyone. It's not for me to judge, but God.

I understand that God has a specific plan for everyone and I believe that we go through hard times to become stronger and closer to God. If you are having a hard time, you just need to know that God is there. His word provides many comforts and I am thankful that God does care all of us. For every time I feel down and wonder why..... (even when the devil is trying his best) I just have to remember God is always there. Hope you have a good weekend!

  1. I totally agree about the hard times bringing you closer to God. And every day we could be unhappy about something if we wanted but God gives us even more things to be thankful for. Not to mention he calls us to "Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS and again I say rejoice." I think He was telling us to be thankful for good and bad things because ultimately they all point to Him. Overall I feel the same way you have about this situation! Love you and miss you!
