Finding My Answers
In The Unanswered


There are questions I want answers to. These questions are pressing in on the walls of my brain as if the questions are the vice, and my brain is in between. Left to themselves, these unanswered questions can leave me restless during the day, and sleepless at night. “Why did she…?” “Why did he…?” “Why did it…?” I’ll confess I’ve spent too much time letting them “replay” in my head. If it’s possible to get cited for prayers with too many questions, I’d be the Queen of Citations. But I found two things in the Bible that gave me a new hope! The first is Romans 12:2, “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” God has given us the ability to change by “resetting” our thoughts. If there is something that is on replay in my head, and it’s distracting, depressing or deviating me from God as my focus, it needs to be reset. And I (and you) can do that with God. The second one is actually sprinkled throughout the bible. Some of the most honorable people in the bible asked questions to God (!!)—and didn’t get answers. Moses, David, Elijah, Job and Jesus himself (all holier than I; and had it tougher than I) asked questions and didn’t get answers. Yet they fulfilled God’s purposes on Earth and are in their glory in Heaven. When I am at a precipice with a questions, God’s love gives me a choice. I can make it my mission to find answers. Or I can also lift them up to God, let them go to God, and keep going. Knowing that whether or not they’re answered on this side of heaven—they’re safe in His hands. I hope this encourages someone today.
