WHY ME?

“Why me?” we ask the massive sky, as if there is something about us that sets us apart from either the assignments or struggles of life – are we so special that we should escape either one?

The answer, it appears, is both yes and no.

If we feel we have been asked to do something, we are asked because of a divine confidence in us… So, rather than asking this question, might not it be better to bow in humble acquiescence and beg for wisdom in how to accomplish the task at hand, thus becoming a partner rather than a victim. How very empowering that is by comparison. I believe that many are asked, but few respond. And to the few that say yes, I applaud you!

And for the times when heavy circumstances befall us, whether it be health-related, financial, or other challenges, rather than screaming out and shaking a “Why me?” fist, look around. Seriously, who has not had heavy circumstances come their way? Are you to be omitted from this commonality of mankind? It is, to my way of thinking, the tough times that reveal our character. Those are the time that forge in us the strength and resourcefulness necessary to withstand the testing, or expose our weak areas and afford us opportunity to mature.

Why me? you ask.

Why me?

but I am asking, why not you?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
