Lord, Why Me?
Today I’m going to…
Know that You are God and plan my Life
That You are with me in the calm and with me throughout strife
The age-old question. We all ask it. Why me? (.ie; the cheating spouse, the lack of finances, the illness, the hardship, the depression or anxiety, the fear, the circumstances, the struggling that others just don’t seem to get the same amount of, no matter what the struggle is)
This is a hard question to beat ourselves with. Ours is not the answer except to know that He has planned every day of our lives. What others do, is of their own free will and sadly, it affects our lives, in many circumstances. Then we ask. Why? Why did You let that happen?
God gives all of us free will and sometimes that free will hurts others, but God does not interrupt free will. Sometimes it is devastating, sometimes it is circumstantial, such as the loss of a loved one due to illness, or illness of our own and still we ask “why me”?
God loves you. God does not want your suffering and He asks us to trust Him with our struggles and to know that it is for our good and His glory (in seeing us through it) and that we will pass through such things in HIS strength and in our trust in Him.
Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
