Thoughts on those “Seriously, God?” moments

Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.” John 13:7

Every single believer is going to have some “Seriously, God?” moments. We may repeat that  faith mantra everyone says when they don’t understand: “everything happens for a reason.” God’s work  in our lives always makes some kind of redemptive sense.  If we keep looking for patterns and themes in the story He is writing with our lives and connect the dots that God leaves when He puts His finger on our lives we may begin to understand, at least a little bit. Jesus knew that understanding would strengthen Peter later on and wanted that for him.

Lord, give me insight into connecting these seemingly random and somewhat inconveniently placed dots.
