While we wait

When tragedy happens, it's during this time we tend to question things. A natural reaction when we don’t understand why one moment you’re celebrating birth and the next, death. One moment you’re happy and the next, tears won’t stop. One moment you’re going about your day and the next, sickness shifts what you know to be normal. One minute you’re driving to work and the next, your car is being slammed by somebody who ran the light. One moment you’re making plans for tomorrow and the next, funeral arrangements.

If I can be honest, it is also during this time we question God, a lot. God, are you listening? God, why is this happening to me/us? God, do You not care that we are perishing?

I don't know everything, yet I do know this, sometimes things happen that hurts, leaves us lost and confused. Sometimes ... the test will be positive for cancer, your womb may not carry a child, your heart will be broken, death occurs, the business will fail, you might lose your job, your organs may not function well, Covid-19 appears, family gets sick, the house will be foreclosed or car repossessed and/or etc. Evil may appear to be winning, but it's not. The storm may seem like it'll get the best of us, yet God is still present and while we wait to overcome, this is what we do.

We pray, we have faith, we believe, we live, we rejoice, we try again, we fall and get up, we take the medicine, hire the therapist, journal, cry, break some stuff, sing, dance, laugh and we wait in expectation of things getting better. Why because they will.

Ecclesiastes 8:6, "For there is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble."
