The Why behind the No

  “The secret of contentment is the realization that life is a gift not a right.”  ********  But godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 1 Timothy 6:6-7

There are things in life that happen and we question why.  Such has been the case this past month, i.e. The company not being bought, continued financial struggles, friends struggling with health issues at a such a young age, aging and memory loss of a loved one, and even the unexpected death of a young (42) man leaving behind his wife and two young daughters on Christmas morning.

Early yesterday morning as I lay awake at 3am I asked God, “why did you allow BiM to get to the very end (all paper work signed and ready to go) and then not allow the company to sale?”  God is big and I think he is ok with our honest questions (see the Psalms). It was so cool when Jon called me at 9am to let me know that the once interested company who at the last minute said, “not at this time”  is now up for sale – a big deal stopper.  Thus was the WHY behind the no.

However, there are many things in this life I will never fully understand but I know God is in control and I can trust His best for my life.  Psalm 63:8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.  Jeremiah 17:7 blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
