Dear God, Where Are You?



We don't always have the perfect answers to the questions of our children. Lysa TerKeurst explains how disappointments can become His appointments!

“Why mom, why didn’t I experience God’s power?” Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

My daughter had been talking about going for this special achievement at summer camp for 3 years. She met every challenge and could see the goal in sight, until the fire incident.

The goal was to light a campfire with nothing but 3 matches, 2 squares of newspaper, and a few sticks of wood.

She struck the first match, but it didn’t ignite. She struck the second match but still no fire.

Knowing that a big part of the challenge was learning how to communicate with God and rely on Him, she cried out to Him. Still, the third match did not light.

In all of her frustrations and questions, I wanted to be able to give her the perfect answer, but all I could say was sometimes disappointments can become His appointments.
