Trustworthy Car

I’ve just had my car serviced, an expensive business. Now I have the assurance it is running safely and will not break down. Along with the invoice was a description of the work that had been done. It sounded like a foreign language to me – noisy drive belts, clutch transmission operation, OFS lower arm. Fortunately this all makes sense to my mechanic. He understands everything about maintaining the good performance of the car.

This is like my relationship with God. There are many things I don’t understand about the Christian life – why do good people suffer? when will I die? why does it seem that my prayers are not always answered? God knows the answers to these and many other queries. My task is to trust Him to reveal more of Himself as He deems it necessary.
