Now, I know many of the verses, such as . . .
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways.” Is. 55:8
“Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.” Ps. 30:5
I also know with assurance that this vibrant, Christian woman is now with the Lord and enjoying riches beyond belief. But I still have so many questions and very few answers, and I still feel the pain. I still hurt.
I hurt because my niece has lost her neighbor, friend, college roommate, maid of honor, and soul sister in what from a human perspective seems so untimely.
I hurt because my sister and brother-in-law lost someone who was like another daughter to them.
I hurt because there is a family I don’t know very well that is in deep pain, missing and mourning their daughter and sister despite their strong faith.
Yes, I still have the questions. I want to know why? But I do know that God is faithful and trustworthy, and “He will never leave [us] or forsake [us].” Deut. 31:6, and that one day I will know why. All my questions will be answered.
