No Easy Answers

I know you stay true when my world is false
Everything around's breaking down to chaos
I always seek you when my sight is lost


Today has been a day of consideration.

It was 6 years ago yesterday that my pastor, mentor, and friend died after a short fight with cancer - an event that shook my faith in a way I still haven't totally recovered from. It was an event that has left me with the sure knowledge of the fact that there are no easy answers, the idea that if someone tells you it's that simple, they're probably missing some major points. In faith and in life, that was not how I started out.

Paul and I received some unfortunate banking news that I mentioned briefly several days ago, and we were going to take the opportunity to go over our budget while here in a lovely house with a cosy waterfront second-story back porch... Unfortunately, the situation was looking a lot bleaker than our initial take after going over the budget numbers. After several hours of hampster-wheel thinking and going over all possible options, we have again settled on the initial idea, which neither of us are too fond of on a pride level, but will probably be the only really viable option to keep life from crashing down around us - asking for loan help from relatives.

We both feel really vulnerable and scared, having gone from a place where everything was going well to a place of insecurity and lack financially.

This afternoon Paul and I watched Stranger than Fiction, which was just as awesome the second time around for me and Paul liked it as well. Also, tonight was Wednesday wing night, and we stuffed ourselves on $0.35 wings. I'm just about to go upstairs and watch The Importance of Being Earnest with the family.

I have come to the same conclusion. 'Why' is rarely part of my question. 'What now' is often spoken. I figure God's more likely to answer the 'what now' than the 'why'.
I hope you will be led by Him.
