When we experience those things in life that we just don’t understand, we have to choose whether or not we’re going to trust God.
It’s not being optimistically foolish to trust God no matter what; it’s what we call faith. It’s that in between when we don’t have all the answers, and we don’t know if everything will turn out OK that we come to know what real faith is.
Real faith isn’t a hopeful wish. Real faith is making the decision that no matter the outcome, we’ll choose to see it as God’s perfect answer.
Through the good, through the not so good and even through the down right awful, we will trust God. Now this doesn’t mean we won’t cry and express hurt. It does mean we’ve decided it’s better to have lived trying to take leaps of faith with God, than to walk away from Him.
