Especially when the question isn’t followed up with any kind of an answer.
God is obviously purposeful in everything He does.
So when He doesn’t give us an answer it simple means we must be okay with His silence.
This has been a struggle for me over the last 2 weeks.
I’m gearing up for the birth of our 6th baby and it seems like everything is going the opposite of the way I’d like for it to.
We found out he will be born with a clef lip, he’s been posterior the majority of the pregnancy and while my body has tried to go in to labor on its own for the last week his position has led to active labor not starting.
As a momma who has done everything to mentally prepare for his arrival I have been greatly frustrated and asked God many times “Why?”
Why isn’t he coming the way he should?
Why is he being born with this physical defect?
Why aren’t things going smoothly leading up to labor?
Why, why, why?
In the grand scheme of things none of this is a big deal.
I’ve had a relatively easy pregnancy. Never have I had to be put on bed rest like so many others.
I’ve never had major complications during delivery and God has been gracious to us in our finding out about his clef lip before he is born.
Humanly speaking however, it’s been a struggle for me.
One thing I keep feeling in my heart is the Lord emphasizing through His silence, “I Am is in control. I Am will keep you. I Am will hide you under the shadow of My wings.”
Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20.
I will come upon on a day where I can look back and be able to tell what image was being woven in the tapestry of my life at this moment in time.
Being left with the unanswered question of “Why?” is never easy no matter how many times you’re faced with it.
Nevertheless, God is always on His throne and in complete control.
This I can always be sure of…
