I Don't Know...

Questions I have heard this past week and don't have answers to:
How were 4 people I know diagnosed with breast cancer last week?
Why did a 35 year old mother die and leave her one week old son?
How does a simple hip replacement end like this?
How were there 3 funerals in one week in our community?

I. Don't. Know. 
I do know, when I asked God how I should be answering people....I got this...

You don't need to defend Me.
You don't need to understand or explain.

If He needed us to do either of these things...He would have equipped us to.
On the contrary, He has made clear that we are not able to understand many things...
Although one day we "shall see in full..."

And until then....we will
"Trust in The Lord with all our hearts 
and lean not on our own understanding."
- Proverbs 3:5
These times are an opportunity to show and tell what we DO know. God is good...all the time. And all the time....God is good.

God, Thank You for loving us enough to remain Constantly Present.

In His Dust,

It is becoming easier to trust, as I get older and reflect.
