This I Believe
I believe the Lord does everything for a reason. I believe that God created humanity for a purpose. I believe that God made each and everyone of us for a role in his plan. We often ask God for answers or reasons of why things are the way they are. We ask him why we are here and what to do. Sometimes he answers clearly and sometimes not, but he does this for a reason. Even if God doesn’t give us answers outright, it doesn’t mean he isn’t listening. He does everything for a reason. Sometimes we wonder why God makes bad people, why he doesn’t stop global warming, why doesn’t he give solutions and answers to us clearly. I believe he has a great reason for it all. God is a mysterious, loving, wonderful, and forgiving being with a plan for humanity. Even if he doesn’t tell us why, sometimes he still does everything for a reason. God’s greatest reasons can be very unclear. But just remember, he always has a good reason for doing what he does.
