Why am I here and not way over there ?
Why does it seem that today's so unfair ?
Why with earths trouble I often despair ?
Why is it hard to keep away the evil snare ?
Why in others the good I fail to compare ?
Why for life's hope I will look elsewhere ?
Why in good times my prayer is vary rare ?
Why to Your alter I sometimes forbear ?
Why does Your word say I'm not there ?
Why of Your presence I'm not aware ?
Why of Your love I often fail to share ?
Why before time for my soul You did care ?
Why on a cruel cross my sin You did bear ?
Why was it for me Your Grace did prepare ?
Why was by faith Your love I now declare ?
Why am I looking for the meeting in the air ?
Why am I now ready for that city foursquare ?
WHY ME MY LORD
Have you ever asked God, “Why is this happening to me?” Yes, I've been there and done that. Why! Why! ( Philippians 1:12 )
If you are blessed you may imagine it must be some virtue or good on your part. However, if you are struggling it must be either a.) you are being refined or tested, by God, or b.) God may be disciplining you.
Then you begin to ask “Why?” you would tend to think the answer revolves strictly around you. You see, we may be ashamed at how rarely we consider the possibility that we have been placed in our current circumstances so that someone else can hear the gospel. ( Philippians 1:20 )
Remember that old quote, " “I used to complain I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet.”
Just like the inference of this poem, we all seem to be in a state of uneasiness. Until we come in contact with God's Grace, through our Faith in His finished work on Calvary's cross. ( Ephesians 2:8-9 )
Have you ever noticed that famous painting, portraying Jesus knocking on a door. And, this door has no outside latch or handle. The theme of the painting is that it's up to us to open the door of our heart, to our loving Savior, and let Him in. ( Revelation 3:20 )
