I blogged this a few weeks ago…Its again true today. There is no answer good enough. But, then, when I imagine a sweet lil boy dancing ("moon walking" as his sweet grandmother said to me tonite) in Heaven waiting for us all to join him, I'm reminded that there will come a time where we will see the "why" 1st hand. That's a promise. Just like this one is: "I'll never leave you; I'll never forsake you." Even if it feels like it.
I felt like I needed to read it again…you might also:
Today I got some news that breaks my heart in half…for those left behind, they will be left broken. The kind of news that makes you alternate btw mad and sad. The kind of news that makes you want to scream "WHY?"
I've screamed it a few times, myself in my life. And ya know, as I look back at those times its as though I have a Voice reminding me, "yea, Kris, but if I did tell you WHY, would it ever be good enough?".
No. There is no good answer to "why" when we are in the thick of it.
And so, I have to believe in a place where I never need "why"s and a place that it all makes sense. A place where when I get there I'll be able to say…"Ohhhhhhhh, NOWWWWWW I get it". I often imagine those who've gone before me trying to holler out to me, "Trust me…the 'why' IS worth it once you get here…you'll see…just wait!" That brings me comfort. They get it…they know the "why" already and are just waiting on me to get there and celebrate w/them.
For those of us left here, there is no good answer to "why". So, we have to ache and wait…and hopefully grow in a way only God can see. I have to know that He can use this part of life just as much as He uses to other parts…if we let Him. Praying today for a sweet family who are in that "why"…and praying for the rest of those God is sending to stand in the gap for them.
Going to hug my people now…and live in the right now.
