"When God Doesn't Make Sense"

Let go and let God.

That's a powerful adage. Why? Because you think it's easy but actually it's not. It's hard letting go of everything that you think you can and should do. Even if, in the end, it's better to let God's will be.

Didache, May 29 '08

Then I read a book entitled, When God Doesn’t Make Sense. There, the author shared how trees grow. The roots of trees planted in arid land tend to deeply stretch out to seek water for nourishment. And because of this, flood waters can’t easily uproot it, unlike a tree planted in rich soil.

That's a good title: When God Doesn't Make Sense. Perhaps you've asked, even for once in your life, how God makes sense out of all the catastrophes around and within us. But what is "sense"? Is it us who makes sense out of things? Or what if God also wonders how we don't make sense? Haha.
