Rebellion

Genesis 32:22-32

Every day I commute about 40 minutes to work one way. I often use that time alone in my car to think, reflect, and talk to God. Today on my way home, a feeling came over me all of a sudden that I should have prayed with my grandmother more before she passed away. I don’t know where it came from, but boom! It hit me like a ton of bricks. I was overcome with emotion. Did I pray enough? Why didn’t God heal her when he chooses to heal others that are facing dire situations? I knew it was wrong to question God, but my heart and emotions took over in the moment. Eventually, after hashing it out with God, His reasoning won. He always has a plan, in His timing and in His ways. I may not see it now and that’s okay. Even in our rebellious moments, God still loves us and does not give up on us. It’s hard to comprehend because when we relate it to any human reaction when we rebel or argue, anger and grudges come into play. God has so much patience with us and welcomes that open relationship with us. We just have to embrace it. God is good, even when we question Him 😉
