Wondering "Why?"

I gather my reflections on grief based on what I have experienced in my life with the loss of my son, Joe and the loss of my husband, Paul.  We all have a story to tell, I want to always remember this. The grief, and pain that you have gone through is different then what I have gone through. There are things that you have had to deal with that I have not had to deal with. Here on my blog, I try to the best of my ability to acknowledge others as I did in this post as well as in this post

As we deal with our grief, the most natural response is "Why?"

  "Why did this happen?"
   "Why is there so much suffering?"
 Feel free to add your own "Why__________________________?"

Truth be told, I do not have the answers. We live in a fallen world, Jesus talked about this in 
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
He tells us "in this world you will have trouble".  Indeed we will,  have trouble , as you and I well know. Thankfully, as we read further there is hope"but take heart! I have overcome the world".  This can bring us comfort knowing that Jesus has overcome the world.  It's still not any easy path, dealing with our "Why?" The best thing we can do is take our "Why?" and bring it to the Lord.  Proverbs 3:5-6"Trustin the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight".
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your ow understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight"
