“Why Me?”

August 17, 2012 2 comments

So often, the question of “Why?” is negative. “Why do I have to go through this? Why is everything so hard for me? Why… why… why? Why me?” We don’t understand why everything is “going wrong” for us. However, we are to be thankful in all things… and sometimes it should just hit you to ask “why?” Why am I this blessed? Why not someone else? Why is God so good to me when there are others who deserve it more? Why did God make that sunrise so beautiful? Why is there that tiny, detailed, beautiful flower that most often would be overlooked? Why is there peace in the quiet of an evening? Why is it that my Dad can reassure me in a very few minutes that I’m doing ok and what is right? Why do I have such wonderful and true friends? Why are all these promises for me? Why am I this blessed? Why me? And then marvel in God’s grace and goodness, and be thankful. God is not stingy. He does not want to hold back in blessing us. Sometimes we go through hardship, but that is how we view it with our limited view. Someday it will all make sense, but today is not that day and we just have to trust God. Believe that our God is a giving and gracious God. One who loves to bless. Our minds should be blown away when we ask “why me?” by all of the blessings we are given and how good our God truly is…
