A thought

I have been wanting to write a post in response to last week's devastation left by the tornados but honestly haven't been all too sure of what to say. Many times I typed words on a page, hoping that I would have the perfect thought to reconcile what devastated so many, but that thought never came.

Instead all I know is this
God is sovereign and that He is merciful and just!
But....... I also know that my heart cries "why"?

Why destruction?
Why fear?
Why suffering?
Why death?
Why brokenness?

Maybe it's not for me to answer "why," but to know that God does. Maybe it's not for me to find peace but to have peace in finding that He is sovereign. For today, I will rest in His promises and not why.

How do you respond to the "why" question?


  1. oh Annie! so well stated. thank you for your reminder that yes...our peace IS in Him who is sovereign! John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

  2. Love that verse, thanks for the comment Kim!
