Like the apostles, we often face times when we really don’t understand what Jesus is trying to say. There are also times in our lives when it doesn’t seem like he is even there. This usually happens at the death of a loved one or in time of sadness or trial. We can also have circumstances that leave us scratching our heads and wondering what our God is up to.
I guess that times like these is when that word we don’t really like (trust) comes into play. Even if we don’t receive an answer or solution, we need to trust that Jesus knows what he is doing. If we keep praying to him, praising him and expressing our love for him, he will respond and not remain silent forever.
We do need to find quiet in our lives however so that we can hear him when he responds. The disciples didn’t understand Jesus had to die for our salvation. We need to place our trust in him and believe that in his perfect timing he will reveal his plan to each one of us !
