I Don’t Need To Understand

When the circumstances of life turn in unexpected directions, our minds try desperately to understand the why of it all. We try to reason with God or the universe, telling them surely this must be a mistake. This isn’t the path we’ve chosen. I thought I was headed in the right direction. Yet here we are. I won’t go into all the details; there would just be too many. What I will say is when things don’t go the way we planned we should stop, wait and listen. There is a voice inside each of us guiding us in everything we do. Sometimes life is just too loud for us to hear it.

This brings to memory one of my Grandfather’s favorite old hymns:

I Don’t Need To Understand

“Life is like a mighty sea
So tossed and driven.
Billows rise within the heart of every man
Storms so many times will
Leave the heart with questions
But I don’t need to understand
Just hold His hand

I don’t need to understand
I just need to hold His hand
I don’t ever need to ask the reason, why
For I know He’ll make a way
Through the night and through the day
I don’t need to understand
I just need to hold His hand.

When my life down here is through
And Jesus calls me
To my home up there, beyond the golden shore.
I’ll look back, review the path
That lay before me.
Then I won’t need to understand anymore”
