Why do we ask WHY? Trials, heartaches, pain, etc.,... are they not just par for the course in this
world? Did Jesus not tell us..."in this world you WILL have trouble?" If our heavenly Father
gave us an answer, would it make the pain any more bearable? Would our finite minds even be
capable of understanding infinite wisdom? After Jesus told of us that trouble was a sure thing,
He then added...."but take courage, I have overcome the world." (John 16:33) He knows we are
scared senseless by the troubles of this world. The courage we need to overcome is not found in
answered questions, but in the person of Christ. I have asked the WHY questions myself which
have driven me to God's Word. His Word did not reveal the answer to "why", but it did reveal
the all knowing WHO!
