I love learning, and it brings me so much excitement and joy to see how the Lord is working in my life and to understand what He is teaching me. It is very frustrating, though when I cannot see or understand what He is doing. It is encouraging to see growth, and when things continue in confusion I get bogged down with weariness and discouragement. When days and days go by with no answers to the questions that continually spin around my head, I begin to lose hope.
But I know that my God is a faithful God. He does not stop working in our lives, though sometimes it may seem like it. “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 encouraged my heart tonight: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
Even though it is still my desire to see and understand what the Lord is trying to teach me, sometimes His ways are not clear. But if we knew everything, there would be no reason to trust Him. It is in the times of confusion and “silence” from the Lord that we must trust Him the most.
