I Don’t Understand

I don’t understand…….

why there is such pain and suffering

why the beauty of nature is contrasted by the devastation of tsunamis and earthquakes

how a parent can neglect a child
or even worse, abuse and abandon God’s blessing of life

why it is so exhausting to do the right thing
to follow a different path
to face rejection and disdain

why it is so wearying to be different
following God when loneliness is ever present
and often overwhelms

why it is so hard to follow Jesus’ model
to turn the other cheek
again and again

why there is so much sin
so much evil
such heartache

In my human mind I just don’t understand
In my heart that loves God I know we live in a sinful world
Full of natural consequences and evil men

Life happens
Illness overwhelms
War ensues
Death is permanent

Doesn’t mean I have to like it
Or understand
Because I don’t
And I won’t
Until I get to heaven
