Every story includes a beginning, middle and end. For the impatient, wanting to fast forward to know the conclusion, important details are skipped. Subsequently, chapters and pages don’t make sense, void of any rhyme or reasons.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere, James 3:17.
The same concept applies to life. Sure, every human being starts with conception, but somewhere between childhood and adolescence, life gets complicated. As an adult, the complexities increase, causing many to be confused by the rhymes and reasons in life. Thus, when you stop to reflect about where you are, how you got there and what do next, clarity is often hard to find.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, Colossians 1:9.
If you are like me, you have experienced periods of uncertainty in life. When you find yourself in these moments of doubt, prayer is one of the best solutions. As you pray your way through life to make sense of rhymes and reasons, God promises to give individuals knowledge and insight. Therefore, don’t quit before God finishes the story He has written. In the Lord’s time, rhymes and reasons will be unveiled as you draw near to God.
