No Need to Understand

“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,

so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.”

~Ecclesiastes 11:5

One thing I have learned through this whole process (Choosing Joy Over Sorrow) is that I don’t have to understand everything.  The details of God are sometimes blurred to me!  Sometimes I don’t get why He does what He does or how does it.  But one thing I know for sure…  I can trust Him.  I can trust God with the details.  Genesis 1:16-17 says,

“God made two great lights–the greater light to govern the day

and the lesser light to govern the night.  He also made the stars. 

God SET them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.”
