Not My Will, But Yours Be Done, Part 1.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways above your ways and my thoughts above your thoughts.   Is. 55: 8-9

Since the moment of the Fall in Genesis, man has always tried to question the ways of God. The funny thing, no matter how often we realize that this is a futile endeavour, we still try to figure it out on our own. Usually, this leads to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-guessing our own actions in response to what has happened and plenty of restless nights and groggy mornings.

In his first letter to the Corinthians, St. Paul tells us that he came so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God. (1 Cor. 2: 5)  Why then, (insert my own personal mea culpa) is it so hard to trust God in his eternal wisdom? I've been questioning some recent events and my own pride won't let me rest until I get an answer.

More on this later...
