Why Do Peaches Have Fur?

God questions, Trust the Lord, Proverbs 3:5
"Grammy, why do peaches have fur?"

As soon as we start talking, we start asking "Why?".

Before I accepted Christ, I had lots of "whys": 
  • “Why do innocent people suffer?”
  • “Why do evil people prosper?” 
  • “What happens to someone who never hears the Gospel?”
But some answers are too big for our finite minds to grasp, so I made a choice to accept the Lord anyway. And I began learning how to “Trust in the LORD with all [my] heart and lean not on [my] own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).

I’m still learning how to do it…learning that we Christians “don’t live by explanations, we live by promises.” *

Because “faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1).

I don't have answers to all my questions, but I serve a God Who has every answer and He tells me to trust Him.
