Here's an example that I like to use, simply because it is one that most red blooded males can relate. And we can all relate to it because we remember what it was like to be 16 and know everything. When I was 16, I was 100% convinced that my father was the dumbest man on earth. And I wished he would have done things differently.

Fast forward 30 years, my father was one of the wisest men that I've ever met.

I don't feel there is a need to explain any further, because we've all been there. I see our relationship with God in much the same way. Even as a minister of His Word, I have questions sometimes. I've often wondered why me and my wife could never have our own children, but drug addicted mother's pop kids out left and right. I've wondered why a child gets cancer. I've wondered why anyone gets cancer. I've wondered why some prayers are answered yes, and some answered no. I've even endured a time in my life where I was mad at God.

I see myself at the ripe old age of 16 in my spiritual journey sometimes wondering why God does the things He does and why He doesn't hit the reset button. But as I've grown spirituality, I've also came to realize that He's already hit that button by sending us Jesus. That question has been answered for me, but many of the others have not. I have faith that there will come a day when we fast forward, that the Father's plan will make perfect sense. We're not there yet, but it's coming.

Having questions is simply a part of human nature. Happens to the best of us.

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.
