Year of Experiences

December is here again… another year winding down. Days and weeks have passed stuffed with experiences. More joys and concerns than I can count and continually bring before God. 
His faithfulness astounds me, yet not all my questions have been answered. I can’t even claim closure in most areas… just hope. Hope for a new year and that direction will come. Direction about what to do next. Maybe even solutions.
“And if not? He is still good.”
The story I posted of missionary Helen Roseveare touched me deeply, because of her reaction to being raped while serving God as a doctor in remote Africa. 
When she cried out, wrestling with God over His allowance of this horror, He replied:
“Can you thank ME for trusting you with this experience- even if I never tell you why?”Her answer… yes.
That’s the bottom line. Will I trust Him with my (much smaller) experiences too? With all that’s come from 2016? With what’s ahead for 2017? The good, the bad, the ugly? Past – future – present… 
Yes. Because God remains the same. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He sees the end from the beginning and only He can (and will) use everything.
