Living With Love

The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not.

~ C.S. Lewis

This quote is laying heavy on my heart today. I'm a thinker and often find myself trying to figure things out. But some things, especially those about suffering and the rhyme and reason to it, we're just not supposed to ever completely understand. He understands and has a glorious plan in it all, even when it might not seem that way through the suffering, pain, grief, sorrow and so many other things so evident in today's world. The job for us to simply trust His plan and know that He wants the best and that things don't have to always be good in order for His best to shine through.

As I write this, I'm reminded of just living this life in the present. My little girl's dancing around the room singing to her CD...

God help me remember what I need to do
Help me serve others in everything I do
When I'm walking, when I'm running
When I'm standing or when I'm jumping

Every step I take, every move I make
It must be done in love
Everything I say, everything I do
It must be done in love
Yeah, it must be done in love
Oh, it must be done in love
It must be done in love...hey!
(Group Seregenti Trek VBS CD, Sing, Play and Roar)

We don't need understand everything, even though things sometimes are confusing, hurt and break our heart. We just need to live for him...shine for Him in all we do...and we can simply do this by living in love.
