The best answer to a question is one that provides enough rationale embedded within it to answer the next, yet unasked question. I realize that this is an odd way of looking at life. I find that no matter how old I get, I often find myself asking the same question I did when I was two, “why”? When I talk to others, I find them falling into the same pattern. No matter what my answer is, there is always another that follows. While making for great conversations, it can be frustrating if one wants to move onto a different topic or get to a point of taking action.
I caught myself waking from an extended dream where I was being inundated with questions. They just kept on coming from all directions! Even as I answered one, out of my blind spot came another. No matter how patient I was, there was no end. Even with succinct and complete answers, more questions tumbled down. As I woke in the darkness of the predawn morning, the questions kept flowing, flooding my senses and ability to comprehend. With the stillness, the overwhelming nature of it all paralyzed my ability to respond.
As the light began to peak over the horizon, I found myself listening to God's gentle whisper. My words are light, yet they have the power to change your life. My burden is easy, even in the midst of your struggle. My gift is a new beginning free of the past, yet letting go will be one of the hardest decisions you will ever make.
My questions bubbled, screaming within my head that they had to be answered and addressed. In the emerging dawn, a truth was left for me to consider. “God set him on high at his side, Prince and Savior, to give Israel the gift of a changed life and sins forgiven.” (Acts 5.31) You and I are Israel to our community. We are Israel to the oppressed. We are Israel for the exploited. We are Israel for those unable to stand for themselves.
