I once prided myself believing I had all the answers to life’s most perplexing questions. Older and wiser, and more humble, I see now what foolishness that view was.
Now, when I don’t have answers, when I don’t understand, I lean on Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
I no longer believe I have all the answers; in fact I accept the possibility that I may have not even one of the answers. But where once that possibility would have frightened me, I am now comfortable with the mysteries that in the past, leaning on my own understanding, I tried to explain to myself. I don’t care anymore if I don’t have all the answers for I know that God does.
I am confident in God’s presence and his ability and desire to take care of the things that are beyond my ability and comprehension. He, in his own time, will tell or show me what I need to know if I continue to look to Him for answers.
