oh my soul, march on...

There are few things in this life that I actually get. One thing that I do get is that I have questions, and a lot of them, and I always will. My mind is naturally quite curious, and it is always searching for something deeper in any circumstance. It's not that I don't know how to be content...because I, like Paul, have learned through many hardships to be content in whatever circumstance I am in...however, my longing for understanding is never satisfied. It is deep within my heart and I don't or won't deny it for a second. But, I am thankful for it, because without that desire for a deeper understanding, I would never desire to draw closer to the Lord. I liken myself to, what a lot of Christians have deemed, "doubting Thomas". I personally think the title is one of the worst that Christians have ever created. He was a lot like us, wanting proof, asking Jesus "how do we know the way?" (John 14:5-6). He can be likened to Gideon, Moses, Abraham, David, and so many other valiant men who were always asking questions because they too desired to have a deeper understanding, were afraid, and were always in need of proof. But the most important thing is that they kept marching on. They never stopped. They didn't let their questions, doubts, or lack of proof hinder them. They tarried on, even when there seemed to be no hope and no possible way that Jesus would or could come through for them. They had faith...and that is what separated them from the world. "O my soul, march on with strength." - Deborah, Judges 5:21b
