Seed, Spade and Sword: The Bible In Context

Helping to illuminate biblical context and background

A little side tracked from the story of my life. I was putting my kids to bed one night when I started thinking and meditating on my life. Like, why God decided to use me in the areas where he has. Have you often wondered why God has put us here on earth at this time and age? How about why He lets so many children be aborted when there are countless of women and couples who cry and long for a child of their own and can't have any? I sometimes wonder why God didn't take me home back in 1997-1998 when I told Him in my prayer to Him if I was going to fall astray that I would rather Him take me now and be with Him in eternity then to perish and not be with Him in eternity. I am still here. I've had my ups and downs in my life. Alot for a 27 year old like me. Some things I wonder why God had me go through what I have been through. 

I've often wondered where I would be if I made some pretty rash decisions when I was little. Like wanting to run away from home when I was 7 or 8 years old.

Genuine questioning is part and parcel of being human. We are inquisitive by nature and we cannot help ourselves at times. The issue is not asking questions but the attitude of heart and the tone of the questions. Basically, all asking of questions are not equal. Some question to ensnare. Some question to vent anger. Some question because there just doesn't seem to be any rational explanations out there. Some question when they don't really want the answers. Oh well, you get the idea. 

Everyone asks questions, some out loud, others deep within, but asking is something we do well. Knowing you as I do, I am willing to wager that you are not one to ask out of an improper attitude. So Rachel, ask away! But, one thing...just because you ask doesn't guarantee you will always get answers, or answers that you will like or even fully understand.
