Understandable?

"I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!"
Have you ever made that statement?
Have you ever been through something that caused you to make that statement?
Have you made that statement to someone?
Have you ever made that statement to God?
Of all those questions, I think we are most fearful of making that statement to God.  But why?  He's the One that will comfort us the most when we don't understand.

So many situations-
such is daily life.
Some cause our hearts to dance about...
some cut us like a knife!
Some contain such joy, and yet                
the same a hidden thorn!
Will e'er we come to understand
why trials such are born?

Character...patience...
repute...integrity...
some of the byproducts come
to life in such as we
as we go through the situations
and "opportunities"
that cause you and I to make
the statements such as these!

"I DO NOT UNDERSTAND," but I
don't have to anymore.
I know that God is all around me-
my steps to restore!
He will protect, preserve, provide
no matter what may be.
I'll cling to Him and all His ways
throughout eternity!

Clinging to the One Who understands ALL things means releasing my need, desire and compulsion to know it all. 
That's a hard thing.  Can I do it?  Can YOU?
