When Life Doesn’t Make Sense [Short Encouraging Words ]

Life doesn’t always make sense.

Things seemed to be going smoothly, and then all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, the road we’re walking takes a terrible turn and we find ourselves trudging through a dark valley. We long for answers, direction, and relief, but don’t always find them. Feelings of discouragement follow . . .

I read a Chinese Proverb recently that says,

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Reading this got me thinking —What’s my song? What’s hidden within my heart that I can rely on when life doesn’t make sense?

I didn’t have to think long! God is my song. He is the answer for every question life throws at me. . .

I will praise Thee, O Lord, among the people. I will sing unto Thee among the nations. For They mercy is great unto the heavens, and They truth unto the clouds!

Psalm 57:9-10

Dear friend, I don’t have an answer for life’s heartache and confusion, but I can offer you the hope of Christ. When life doesn’t make sense, rest in his love and trust him with all your heart. May the Lord be your strength and song moment by moment, and especially when life doesn’t make sense.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make his face shine on you

    and be gracious to you;

the Lord turn his face toward you

    and give you peace.”

—Numbers 6:24-26
