Although I do have an overwhelming sense of Shalom & Serenity this morning... I still have a lot of questions.
Another part of my time with the Lord includes reading scripture. For the past 6 months or so I have been doing this chronological bible study... basically where you read through the whole bible in chronological order... Did you know that its not actually set up that way? Go figure it would be confusing :)
Well, the reading plan I got is helping by putting things in somewhat of an order for me. The bible is reading more like a narrative now.
A story about God and God's people.
I am loving seeing how things fit together, but boy do I have A LOT OF QUESTIONS!!
Some of them I am even hesitant to ask out loud.
I shouldn't still be wondering all of this stuff, right?
Maybe I'll never know the answers...
I have been considering starting a new blog, just about questions... I'm sure you have them too... would that be interesting?
One question that I faced today was, "Did the folks in these times (I am currently in the middle of 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles and will be reading Jonah tomorrow) experience serenity? How? Where do I see this? Where don't I? How come? What does this mean? Anything?"
I do find that in the Psalms, in the midst of anguish there is a sense of trust and hope. I wonder if that is a piece of Shalom shining through??
