“Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power,
and everything is for his glory.” Romans 11:36
“The Lord has made everything for his own purposes.” Proverbs 16:4
All people are looking for a reason for living.
Scientists, biologists, those who working in their own fields, other reason through philosophies. But most of the people when they are confronted with the loss of a loved one, this is when people either wake up or pull away.
My personal experience is with my brother (my favorite brother) after the death of my father, he became my guardian, and even my ‘best friend’. But then he suddenly died after a short mysterious sick bed.
A time of confusion, confrontation, anger, bitterness, and also the end conclusion; there is no God, or is there… more between heaven and earth?
My search started… This search led me on a path, which ultimately brought me on the small path, the path that leads to the Everlasting One.
Did I get answers to all my questions? Specifically my WHY question? NO! But through the pain and the loss I found the Savior! My Savior, my Lord, my Guardian, my Best Friend!
I learned not to ask the WHY question anymore.
It gives a peace knowing that everything is in His hands. That there is a reason for everything even though I may not understand it or in my human nature don’t agree or think its fare! I found the reason for everything – every trial, every hardship, as it produces endurance. I know I have more family than I could ever wish for. You are my dear sisters in Christ!
I’m a grateful woman, the reason for everything I found in Him alone, Christ Jesus my Lord!
May God continue to bless & strengthen you during these 40 days of prayer and fasting.

Point to ponder: WHY questions only have a purpose when there is a possibility to get an answer. With WHY you question God, instead of trusting Him.
Verse to remember: “I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be stripped of everything when I die. The Lord gave me everything I had and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!” Job 1:21
Question to Consider: In which area’s have I questioned God and need to start trusting more?
