It’s easy to trust God when everything is going ok. It’s a different story sometimes when you’ve just been sucker-punched in the gut and the bottom has fallen out from under you.

It’s one thing to intellectually understand that God can see the whole picture while we can only see a part of it. It can be quite another to grasp that emotionally. I’m finding it somewhat difficult to choose to trust God when it feels like He’s really just set us up for a fall and let us down.

Now don’t worry, I’m not falling off the bandwagon of faith. Sometimes it’s just really easy to wonder “why.”

That’s the measure of faith, I guess, does it survive the difficult times. And when it does emerge from the other side, it’s that much stronger.
