The Bible tells us that His ways are not our Ways. If we believe what the Bible says, then why can't we let God decide our paths in life and not question "why?"?
I know that it is difficult to go through tough times and have bad things happen to good people. I know that when something bad happens to us, without reason, we feel the need to question "why?". I myself have looked back on several trials in my life and often wondered "why?". However, I have faith in it all and I know that no matter what happens to me, or to those that I love, God has His reasons.
The Bible also tells us that we will go through many trials and we will be tempted. It never states that we won't have these complications in our lives. It also states that whenever we do go through these rough times, God will see us through them. Maybe at the time it doesn't seem fair. Maybe it feels like God is picking on you. Maybe your anger gets the best of you and you just feel hate inside. We are human and those emotions are normal. However, we have to keep them in check. Not allow our human nature to derail us from the life Christ intended for us.
When God placed man on earth, He put Adam and Eve in a "perfect garden". That is how God intended it to be. However, human nature took over and sin was committed. Therefore, we live in the world that we do. So, in times of hardship, trouble, dispair, and unassurance; don't blame God. He wanted our world to be perfect. Sin was let in by human weakness. Don't allow your human weakness to give in to sin! Be strong and have faith!
I believe in my heart that I have a mansion in Heaven. There is that perfect World that God intended for me. All I have to do is believe, have faith, and follow. It's not easy. I faulter. But, I know my God will rescue me from the depths of my own faults and He will place me in Heaven to serve Him well. I choose to serve Him here and to do my best to show those around me that God is awsome and He knows what I need. He will provide where I need. If I do not find relief in this world, I will find it in Heaven! AND IT WILL BE GLORIOUS!!!
HAVE FAITH! TRUST! BELIEVE! AND LIVE!!

I can honestly say that no one has ever called me "normal"! That is just fine with me! God created me to stand out, be different, be weird, and not blend in with the world.
There are definately many personalities floating around in my mind. This makes for quite an interesting day with me! It is "Grand Central Station" up there! I have even 'named them'! (Don't send in the troops just yet)
The great thing about having such diversity is that there is never a dull moment with me! I always make sure that heading up this little party in my mind is the Lord God Himself!
God has shown me how to embrace the 'fun' inside me and use it to better His Kingdom! I have found that I don't have to be a 'stick in the mud' to be a Christian. I am a child of God! I am a Chrsitian! I am a follower of Christ! I AM HIS! Every day I am working toward becoming a better Disciple! I will NEVER be perfect - but I am SAVED; so that is all that matters!!
