I’ve found that there are times in my life when I know God is trying to teach me something, but at the time nothing makes sense to me. What I thought I knew about God does not fit within the framework of what is happening to me, in me, or around me. I examine myself, I question my motives, my thoughts, my actions, and still can’t comprehend why I’m going through a situation, or why circumstances are unfolding as they are. The truth is that sometimes our preconceived paradigms have to be shattered, or at the very least radically shifted before we are ready to hear God or to learn the lessons God is trying to teach us.
