"Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I shall rescue you,
and you will honor me.
I recently sat beside a beautiful young mother
on a Delta flight.
When I asked her if she had children,
she pulled her photo album out of her purse.
"This is my son," she said. "He is autistic.
I did everything right when I was pregnant with him,
and still he was born with autism.
All my friends children are perfectly normal, but not mine."
"Are you angry at God," I asked?
How about you?
Have you ever been,
or are you angry at God
because of something that has happened in your life?
Talk to God about your feelings.
Search the Scriptures for real life testimonies
of people who had great trials,
but were able to trust God
in spite of their circumstances.
gives a great answer to the WHY
of our circumstances:
"The secret things belong unto the Lord our God;
but the things which are revealed belong to us
and to our children for ever,
that we may do all of the words of this law."
In other words, there are secret things and there are revealed things.
God lets us in on the "why" of the revealed things.
However, the secret things do not belong to us.
So, that means we must trust God with the secret things
and continue to live for his glory,
which is the ultimate best for us.
"Let us then fearlessly and confidently
and boldly draw near
to the throne of grace - the throne of God's
unmerited favor [to us sinners];
that we may receive mercy [for our failures]
and find grace to help in good time
for every need - appropriate help
and well-timed help,
coming just when we need it"
(Hebrews 4:16 AMP).
