i doubt. i doubt a lot.
i ask questions. and i'm often confused about god's involvement in my life....in any life.
growing up i always heard that god was very involved. i believed (or repeated) that he was in control of everything. ev-er-y-thing. to say god is in control of everything means -those 14,000 young US girls that are solicited and sold to perverted men for sex on the regular- god is in control of that?
or to that beautiful young woman that has been trying to conceive for years and finally gets pregnant- shares excitement with her family and then miscarries- god is in control of that?
or to that young mother of two that was raped in front of her small children - god is in control of that?
these are the things that flog my mind.
this week i heard someone say something very wise...
marcus borg:: "jesus journeys with us whether we recognize it or not." he was referring to the emmaus road story.
so i went back and read this passage and found great comfort for this heart full of questions. he is with me-even when the world is full of hurt and tragedy. even when i don't recognize him. even when i can't see him. he is here.
even now...he is here.
yesterday i talked with a friend that shared how god is working in their lives. an amazing story that is not mine to share so i will leave the details for them. but god is at work. he is with us on this journey.
i welcome your thoughts!
