December is here. Another year winding down. Days and weeks have passed stuffed with experiences. More joys and concerns than I can count or bring before God enough.
His faithfulness astounds me, even as my questions have not been answered. I can’t even claim closure in most areas… just hope. Hope for a new year and that His direction will come. Direction about what to do next. Maybe even a solution.
“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 to Him, wrestling over the allowance of this horror happening to her, God replied:
“Can you thank ME for trusting you with this experience- even if I never tell you why?”
Her final answer after all He had done in her life was, yes.
That’s always the bottom line. Will I trust Him with my experiences too? With whatever happens… whether the answers reveal or not. What about all that may come this next year? What about the year after? The good, the bad, the ugly, the past, today, tomorrow?
Yes is my only answer in light of all He’s done. He remains the same. Faithful. KING of Kings and LORD of Lords. He sees the end, He knows the outcome. Only He can and will make everything work out. To whom else would I go?
