Questions are a part of our life. It is encouraged as we are growing up because we want our kids to be curious (in a good way). We want them to learn and grow to new heights. It’s sad that we tend to grow out of that as we age. In fact, we get angry when there is something we experience that we don’t understand.

To handle questions in life, there are a few things you have to know.

  1. There will always be things you don’t know or don’t understand.

    • In this life, issues will always be presented that I don’t understand or know why they happen. There will always be things you cannot control. There will always be an opportunity to ask why.

  2. You don’t possess the ability to figure it all out.

    • You will never have it all figured out. You will not have all the answers. There will be things that happen that you can’t explain, can’t expect, and can’t avoid.

  3. You must always go back to what you do know.

    • When you are confused and overwhelmed, go back to what you are absolutely sure of.

    1. God loves me. How can He not love me when He gave His Song to die on a cruel cross for me? It is certain that no matter what I go through, His love is always there. I know that He loves me.

    2. I am never alone. “For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you or forsake you.’ (Hebrews 13:5)” The God that loved me even while I was a sinner, who died for me, says He is never going to leave me alone. I know He is with me.

    3. I know He has a plan. “The Lord has a plan for good and not for evil. (Jeremiah 29:11 paraphrased)” “All things work together for good to those who love God. (Romans 8:28)” Let’s be honest. All things are not good. Sometimes we walk through things that are not good, but He says that no matter what I will see His goodness in the end. Even death doesn’t have the final word. Jesus says death is our doorway to Heaven. I know He makes a way.

Through all my years, I have watched people walk through terrible heartache and tragedy. Some made it through with peace and joy and hope and love, and they are still following Christ. Some were crushed, and the rest of their life is defined by the heartache.


Both walked through hurtful tragedy, so what was the difference between them for the different results? One concentrated on what happened and why. The other concentrated on what they know about God and chose to rejoice in a God who is present in every storm, a God who loves them.
