Hebrews 11:6 "...(God) rewards those who earnestly seek Him."

What is the meaning of life? If there was a God, why...? Should I "king" size? Thoughtful, anguished or casual, questions are uttered each second of the day, spoken or unspoken. We seem to have more questions on our hands than answers.

I have some unresolved questions in my life. My company is moving and I have chosen not to move with them. Where will I be months from now? Where will I be working? If I dwell on the uncertainty of the answers, the questions can strive to overwhelm me and handcuff me.

Anxious questions existing only as questions will do that--they will overwhelm the man or woman. Questions stem from the human need to know, to feel security or to just plainly to plan the next step. When the answer is nowhere in sight ...

Our questions need to become hopeful prayers. When questions truly become hopeful prayers, the prayers propel us forward, energizing us. They can become hopeful when there is reason for hope. There is reason for hope.

The God of prayers is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving. Those three attributes should give hope when seen as the undividable character of our God. He will always care for us, guiding us in an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving way.

I can not but hope. His answers will be perfect. "Yes" or "No" they will be perfect and better than expected.

God is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
