Well I feel like lately I have been asking myself why a lot.
Here are some of my whys:
Why is the economy in such turmoil, why do so many people have to lose their jobs because of it, why do people have to suffer because of others bad choices and decisions, why do we have to worry about job security, why do people and children have to suffer from awful, awful diseases, why does tragedy happen, why does Christmas have to be a stressful time, why is it so hard to figure out the REAL reason for this Holiday, why is it so hard to be a "perfect" wife, why do I fear, why do I worry, why can't I just have faith, why do we have to worry about money, why, why, why....
We all have our "Whys," some more than others, but I do know that the Lord is in control of all of my "Whys"
Here are some basic verses of encouragement that have help me be reminded that the Lord is indeed in control. So if any of you have some whys- please know God is in control!
Jerem. 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord. "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Romans 8:28, "and we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who LOVE God and are called according to his purpose!"
