at some point in their life. Recently as I was preparing to board the Self Pity Train, I ran into an old friend who made me realize I should go to the Life is Good platform and change trains. One thing is for sure, at some point, our life will not look anything like we thought it should.
Invariably we really get in a wad when things are not going our way. It is our humanness which drives us to question, "Why?" when things seem to have hit rock bottom. God obviously has broad shoulders since we are jumping up and down throwing a fit over really difficult occurrences we are forced to face. We turn our faces toward heaven and scream at the top of our lungs,
WHY ME, GOD?
We are quick to hurl our fury toward God when life is the pits.
Do we also question God as to WHY? He sent His only Son to save us from our an eternity without Him. Do we question WHY God loves us so much that He would provide the means for avoiding what we deserve? Do we spend any time throwing the question to the Heavens,
WHY ME, GOD?
What could we possibly have done to deserve His unlimited grace? Why would He love us so deeply that He desires us to seek His presence? Why, when He does not really need us, does He allow us to serve Him? Why God, have you sent your ONLY SON to be our way to come to The Father? Why would you allow him to suffer and die as the atonement for MY sin?
The next time, I ask, Why Me, God?, when I am suffering one of life's hard times, I need to turn that Why Me? into a Why me?, for all He has done.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him"
