Don’t you just love that question?  I remember hearing “why” at bedtime.  I think it was a stall tactic, but nevertheless it was persistent.  Others will ask why because they don’t understand, from an inquisitive perspective.  Others still will ask in arrogant rebellion, as though all must revolve around them.
Why, what, where, when. Lovingly, God dealt with one of His “why” prophets, who had asked, “Why do You force me to look at injustice? Why do You tolerate wrongdoing?“ Yes it was a tough time, being told that you will be invaded; even as some experience in our era. God tells him to “Look!”  Habakkuk looks and sees God in His holy temple, and rightfully, becomes quiet with a new beginning of understanding.
King David recorded in his journal, “What is a human being that You remember him, a son of man that you look after him?”  He would also ask, “I lift my eyes toward the mountains.  Where will my help come from?”  This was perhaps yet another battle cry, knowing, “My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
Father, thank You for allowing us, even inviting us to ask You questions, even the tough ones.  Thank You also for Your responses, some recorded already, others where You answer indirectly, saying look, or asking “why” in return, even putting us in our place, being still and not at war with You.  Grow us, as we ask respectfully.
And why God, did you send Your Son as a gift?  “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”  Jesus, meaning Savior, having all authority given to Him, is able to rescue you and me with a new beginning, a victor over even sin and death.  Walk with Him today, as He says, “Learn of Me.”

living w/god: Baptismal speech

I am Desire and this is my son Enrique Gianluca. Today, I am here to share with you how God has changed my life.

For a long time, I wondered why, why things were not happening the way I wanted them to happen, after all, I was working hard, I was providing, I was strong, and I trusted myself.  As I looked for answers, I turned to the world, but the world was not providing answers.  I found myself blind, hopeless, and disoriented, and I lost all perspective. In my desperation, I turned to Christ, and I asked Him to come into my life and free me from this burden and guide me to live for him.

It was not until God heard my request that I received answers. The day that He knocked on my door and I opened my heart to Him was the day I understood I inflicted this pain on myself because, for a long time, I trusted myself instead of trusting Him, I relied on myself when I should rely on His promise. Jesus said on Matthew 11: 28-29 “Come upon Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me. For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul, and My yoke is easy, and my burden is light

When God came into my life, he offered me a new beginning, a new life, and I embraced it with open arms because for the very first time, I understood that I am not alone and I should not be afraid because everything is under His control, not mine, and so I trust Him, and today I declare Him as my savior, my refuge, and my strength.
