Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - December 2

December 2

When There Are No Answers

These [trials] have come so that you faith . . . may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

1 Peter 1:7, niv

What, or who, has . . .

                                                turned on the tap of your tears,

                                    and tossed you in your bed at night,

                        and preoccupied your waking thoughts,

            and blackened your hopes for the future,

      and broken your heart,

and wrenched an agonized “Why?” from your trembling lips?

To our heart-wrenched cries of Why? God’s ultimate answer is, “Jesus,” as He is glorified and magnified in our lives through our suffering. Trust Him. When guilt takes the edge off every joy . . .

            when there are no answers to your questions . . .

trust Him when you don’t understand.

                                    trust His heart.
