It occurred to me over the weekend that we all have questions. I mean questions that are deeper...under the surface...down in our heart questions. And the questions may change over time as we move through different seasons of life. But we do have questions. We have questions because we enter our days full of unknowns. We really don't know what the day holds as we head into it. We have questions about what will happen to us, to our loved ones, to our friends. When we are young we have questions about how our lives will play out. How will we find our place in this big world? As we move through life we wonder: What is my life all about? Even when we get the big answers, like the provision of a spouse, children, occupation and even spiritual gifts....we still carry questions. But the other thought that occurred to me was that all our questions find their rest in the only One who, not only knows the beginning from the end, He knows my beginning from my end. In the Lord we have One who will take our questions and give us rest, even before we have answers. I think the continual presence of questions shows us our continual need to trust...to trust the One who holds us know and carries us always!
Matthew 7:7 "Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
