Faith often leaves understanding behind. We think that answers are strewn along the path to God, that knowing Him means knowing more WHYs, but the opposite is actually more true. Faith only works in the dark. Only when we don’t understand are we forced to look in other directions, and when looking around doesn’t work, we finally look up. God doesn’t promise us answers, at least not in this life, but He does promise us His presence. And when He is near, miracles make answers unnecessary.
