There are no guarantees in life.
You can do everything right, follow all the rules;
terrible things may happen.
The world is a fearsome place, fraught with hideous possibilities of unimaginable pain and suffering.
Saints suffer while villains reign.
The wicked prosper
Because you can do everything wrong
have a life unmarred by terrible adversity or affliction.*
The whys overwhelm.
Outrageous injustice demands explanation, understanding.
But none comes.
But from a void, came Life.
And the unfathomable Love underneath it all
that says, I AM.
The knees bend. The head bows.
“Though you slay me, yet will I trust in You.**”
“The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.”
This lament was written from both a global perspective and an individual perspective, based on my own personal struggles.
(**Job 13:15, kjv)
