Day 17: Fall Apart

It is so easy to blame every single bad thing that happens in our lives to God.  After all, God is supposed to be omnipotent.  He is supposed to be our father.  He would not let anything bad happen to us, right?  He would not let us–nor want us–to feel sad; to feel weak and helpless.  The Holy Bible tells us a lot of stories about men and women empowered because they have faith in God.  We want to feel that powerful as well.

But then…why does bad things happen just when we try to become a better person?  Why does bad things happen to good people?  Why do children–innocent and pure–end up being abused and placed in harm’s way?  Why doesn’t God punish the evil, the corrupt, the bullies?  Why does suffering still plague the world?  Why?  Why?  Why?

It’s not hard to keep asking those questions when things don’t go the way we planned them–when our version of “a good life” is turned upside-down, when our world is shaken by bad news or when bad things happen to us.   It is normal to ask God why.  It is normal to wonder why life cannot be made entirely of pure bliss; why we have to suffer in this earthly realm.

The song I chose for today, which is another song from Josh Wilson, speaks of that–among other things.  The song, Fall Apart, poses a great deal of things that we can think about.

It questions why it is easy for us to praise and worship God when things go our way, but so easy to shun him, to be angry with him, when it doesn’t.  Why is it so hard to feel close to God when things are falling apart?  Why is it so easy to put God’s name on high when we want something and are given that something, but so hard to keep it up when God gives us the answer we don’t want to hear?  When he says, “No” or “This is not the right time”?

I love this song from Josh Wilson’s See You album.  It makes you think about these things, you know.  I don’t know about you guys, but I want to know God more in every moment of my life. 🙂

Below are the lyrics to this beautiful song.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Why in the world did I think I could
Only get to know you when my life was good
When everything just falls in place
The easiest thing is to give You praise

Now it all seems upside down

‘Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when I fall apart

Blessed are the ones who understand
We’ve got nothing to bring but empty hands
Nothing to hide and nothing to prove
Our heartbreak brings us back to You

And it all seems upside down

‘Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when I fall apart

I don’t know how long this will last
I’m praying for the pain to pass
But maybe this is the best thing that
Has ever happened to me

My whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when
You will find me when I fall apart

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
