Some Things Aren’t Meant To Be Explained

One of the greatest waste of time is that of someone who uses it to search for answers to the various complexities life has to offer. Sure, there isn’t anything wrong with striving for perfection, or even seeking improvement. I have personally dealt with some things that I wished the outcome would have been favorable, and in dealing with them, I caused myself more strife by holding on when I should have moved on. I believe we serve ourselves a disservice when we try to make sense out of something that has been declared as senseless.

Only God knows all, and if I never learn anything else in my life, I know for sure that man isn’t God. Though it may not sound plausible to others, I believe that God doesn’t want us to know the answers to everything. If we did it might spoil the experience he promises on our day of judgement.

For example, I misplaced something very important that I really needed. After looking for it nearly two weeks, I never found it. I prayed that I would find it before the third week arrived because at that point it would have been too late. The third week came and to my misfortune, my lost item was an even bigger loss for me. I never found what I was looking for and even after asking God to help me to locate it, nothing happened.

There have been individuals I have crossed paths with that have greatly impacted my life. Their sheer presence left indelible impressions on me that have helped shape and mold me into the person I am today. Little did I know at that time, but the modest gestures of kindness and compassion during very difficult moments actually helped to pull me out of the jaws of despair. I had no goals or dreams, but they spoke of life and what it was going to be like once I opened my eyes and saw as God made it.

God cared enough for me to place certain people in my life at specific moments to carryout His intentional plan. While I may fall at times and fall short of His glory, He made preparations so my purpose would still be fulfilled. I know I don’t deserve His grace and mercy, and I can admit that things should have gone another way. What I don’t know is how and why, because God’s love doesn’t require an explanation.
