O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you "Violence!" and you will not save? Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Habakkuk 1:2-3 Let's be honest. Sometimes life just doesn't make sense. We look around and wonder, "What happened?" Sometimes it comes on a large scale like a tornado or local tragedy. Sometimes it's much more personal like a death, a loss of a job, or a sickness. It's in those times that we question our direction, our faith, and even God. But, if we are "good" Christians, then sometimes we feel guilty for questioning at all. But should we? This week we begin the book of Habakkuk. In this book, the prophet is struggling with these why questions. He wants God to answer for the state of the world and hear his plan to change it. This week, I want to share with you some of my own questions and then dive into Habakkuk to see what this prophet can show us in his struggle.
