Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Oh Lord I do not understand your ways. I do not understand why you allow certain things to happen. Why do you let evil even live another day? Why do you let suffering and pain last another minute? The more I apply myself to know wisdom and to observe the things that are done in this world. The less rest I have in my body and soul. Very easily I can get weary and lose hope to live out my dreams. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all the efforts of the most gifted of people, no one can truly discover what God has done. His ways are unsearchable and we can get lost pursuing the things he has made. We live in a day in age where we can mircoscope to the smallest detail. We can reach out and see the largest of distances. Yet what is right in front of us that we can see with our own moral eyes is blurred. I see myself in a mirror and wonder who I am and where am I going? Why do I feel alive and yet broken inside? Are you kidding me? All this human intellect and skill, all this history and morality, and I still am not satisfied with my destiny. Like a shadow on a wall is my trust in the words of man. Men's hearts are like shifting shadows always evolving but never becoming who they are meant to be. It almost feels like meaningless days spent on this earth. All your love, hate and jealousy will vanish one day from this earth. The great equalizer of death takes away everything that happens under the sun. So then how should we live? How should we understand? Good question, I say trust in the Lord with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your strength. Like you trust the air in your lungs to breathe so trust in the Lord's understanding. His wisdom and knowledge will make your paths straight. Our submission to Him is the only understanding we need to have. We must stop being wise in our own eyes, fear the Lord and shun what is evil. You will see it will bring true meaning and purpose to your life. Even health to your body and nourishment to your bones. We are blessed to find Christ, who is our wisdom and understanding. Lets stop looking to the universe for answers, and find the answers in whom the universe is being held together.
