Why me, God?

Why Me?

That’s a tough question many struggle with on a day to day basis. Why did I lose my health, my job, my spouse, or my home? Why do I have to go through this? Why me God? All of us have been faced with moments when those words were said or thought; moments that caught us off guard and like a spoiled child, we allowed ourselves to become overwhelmed in self-pity instead of overcome with God’s love.

Many ‘why me’ questions don’t have an obvious answer but there are some that do and only when we accept these answers, will we have what we need to get through the times of tragedy and despair.
I’d like to take a few moments and offer my own ‘why me’ questions then I invite you to write some of your own:
Why me God?

Why do I always have enough to food to eat?

Why do I have a loving husband and healthy children?

Why do I have a nice place to call home?

Why do I have plenty of clothes to wear?

Why do I have church family who truly loves and cares for me?

Why am I able to worship you without fear of persecution?

Why me God?

Don’t wait to ask God the ‘why me’ questions when you are faced with pain, suffering, and adversity. Ask him ‘why me’ now and let his answer comfort you and give you strength for the good times and the bad.
