A young boy once approached his father and asked, “Dad, why does the wind blow?” The father responded, “I don’t know, Son.” “Dad, where do the clouds come from?” “I’m not sure, Son.” “Dad, what makes a rainbow?” “I have no idea, Son.” “Dad, do you mind me asking you all these questions?” “Not at all, Son. How else are you going to learn?”
If you have been around children for any length of time, you know that their questions can be unpredictable and numerous. At first, it is cute, but it can soon become quite annoying. Can you imagine the questions that God receives daily from His children? I wonder if He ever gets annoyed by them? While I don’t know the answer to this, I am thankful that God welcomes us to question Him and is the only Father we have who has all the right answers.

Sometimes I look at the stars, Lord, and wonder if You’re there.
I have so many questions for You; I have so much to share.
Sometimes I feel Your presence, sometimes I feel You’re near.
If I tell You how empty I feel, would You still be there to hear?
Sometimes I think back and realize how far I have come
From feeling like nothing, to feeling like “I’m the one!”
Sometimes I feel that the only one I can trust is me.
If only I could trust again, Lord, if only I could believe.
Honestly, Lord, I’m tired of being on the fence,
And Lord, sometimes things just don’t make sense.
I’m asking you now, dear Lord, would You please
Send me something that is certain to convince me.
We are supposed to have faith, but not base it on much.
I need more than that, I want something I can touch.
Sometimes I feel that you gave us a brain to use
But the more I use it, the more I am confused.
“If you do not have wisdom, ask God for it. He is always ready to give
it to you and will never say you are wrong for asking.” (James 1:5)
