His Understanding is Unsearchable
Unfortunately, I have learned of the passing of two young men who were sons of Facebook friends of mine. How I grieve for those families!
It brought me back to some heartfelt words my beautiful daughter had found online and shared with me.
The world of parents who have outlived their children is a heartbreaking and extraordinary world.
We are warriors who have been given one of the most sacred tasks and mission. We are men and women who were chosen, not for pain, but chosen as the only people in the world to parent their precious child. Parenthood, in and of itself is a sacred task. It’s true. But parenting a child, when you can no longer reach out and touch their faces, hold them in your arms, watch their life unfold, that is one of the greatest, most sacred tasks you can be given.
Out of every person in this world, you were chosen to be their parent. Out of every person in the world, you are the ones who were chosen to know them, better than anyone, to be theirs, to have your souls tied together for eternity. Out of every person in the world, it was you, it is you, and it always will be you.
As Isaiah tells us in Chapter 40, “…his understanding is unsearchable.”
There is no searching of his understanding – The God who made all things must be infinitely wise. There is proof of boundless skill in the works of his hands, and it is impossible for finite mind fully and adequately to search out all the proofs of his wisdom and skill. Man can see only a part – a small part, while the vast ocean, the boundless deep of his wisdom, lies still unexplored.
