To the ones with all the questions
I can relate.
Naturally I have way more questions than the average person, at least that’s how it feels. I didn’t always feel comfortable asking the millions of questions that I had in mind but I’ve learned not to be afraid of them and most importantly that God isn’t afraid of them. He actually welcomes my questions and deems them as good.
Having your questions answered leads to a better understanding of things, of the life around you. So ask a question or ask 20 but don’t be afraid to ASK THEM.
Here are a couple of thoughts for those of you that can relate ❤️
1. Your questions are good! (so is your God, remember that He isn’t afraid of your questions so ALWAYS take them to Him first.)
2. They’re valid & they’re yours. There is no such thing as a stupid question.
3. Sometimes people won’t be able to handle the way your mind works, that’s okay. Ask your important questions anyway. Some questions NEED to be asked.
which brings me to my next point …
4. Some questions do NOT need to be asked ( keep these in a thought bubble in your head). Always ask yourself “Am I seeking clarity?, Do I need to know the answer to this?, Am I genuinely concerned or am I being nosey?”
5. Learn the difference between the questions that should be asked and the ones that shouldn’t.
6. Never apologize for the questions that you have. Never allow anyone to make you feel less than because of them.
7. Don’t be afraid to keep asking/rephrasing your question until you are CLEAR, no matter how annoying it may seem.
8. It’s okay to question people in higher places than you. Just because someone holds a certain title doesn’t mean that they are always correct or that they are always as clear as they think they might’ve been. It’s okay to challenge/question their views, opinions and/or statements at times.
9. Some questions have more than one answer.
10. Be wise with who you ask your questions to. The wrong person can give you the wrong answer. You wouldn’t ask your Starbucks barista something that you’d need to ask your doctor, right?
11. Sometimes we just have to lay our questions down at his feet. You have to come to terms with the fact that you won’t always know/have to know all the answers and stepping out in faith requires you to be completely blind. Learn to distinguish the times.
