Understanding the Process

Do you ever find yourself questioning why you go through what you go through at times of your life?

You asks questions that begin with, "God why..." or "God how..." and all doubt, fear, frustration, discouragement begin to arise the moment that you begin to try putting the pieces together but can't seem to. Sometimes there is no immediate answer and there is even times that the answer won't come to light until years later. That has been the way my life has shaped up to be the last three years. I don't want to completely say that I have not understood parts of the process and why things have gone the way they have but until this day answers still have not been clear to me but at the end of the day it's OK. Why use up so much energy and time trying to figure out questions that God only has answers to and only God will reveal in due time? Understand that it is not a matter of just getting the answer but it is also a matter of being ready for the answer. God will not give us anything that we cannot handle, whether it is physical, mental or emotional. In due time all things will come to light and be revealed.

One story and individual that I have been thinking a lot about when it has come to this thought and  topic is Abraham, the father of our faith. He went through many situations (similar to ours and even greater at times) where he could have raised questions that begin with the two words "God why" or "God how" but Abraham gave up control and trusted the process and ultimately trusted the God that was leading him through that process. He may not have understood everything that occurred in his life completely but he understood God's calling, God's love and God's faithfulness towards him. We don't have to always know the why behind the what, we just have to know (and be always reminded) that God's love and faithfulness is unending, has no limitations, and is never shaken. We have to believe in the God that leads us through the process. This is way easier said than done but you have to let go and let God. That means fully and completely giving up your rights, decisions, passions, dreams and your whole being to God.  To let go, is to trust God in every facet of your life.

As I thought about how I would put all these pieces together I really started to regain back the desire and fire to write again. I have not written since the end of 2012 so I have had to shake some dust off and probably will for sometime. But like riding a bike, once you learn it you always know it! 
I have decided to break "Understanding the Process" into a series of parts because there is just so much ground to cover and so much that has occurred in my life that it would be difficult and pretty long to squeeze it all into one blog post. In the weeks and months to come I will cover topics that include:
a. The birth of my twins
b. My wife's life threatening disease
c. Fatherhood
d. Career
e. Ministry/ Church

These are the main topics that come to mind and that have changed the course of my life these last 3 years. I hope that you find inspiration and encouragement in my past and present journeys and that God speaks to your heart.
