It’s Okay Not to Understand Why


When learning to deal with a chronic illness it is okay not to understand why this illness is happening to you.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV), “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

What the verse means:

It is okay not to understand why this is happening to you because God knows. We can trust God to know what is best for us.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Heavenly Father, we ask that You show us Your ways.
  2. Lord, we pray that our thoughts would be You thoughts.
  3. Help us, God, to submit to Your thoughts and ways.
