Why Me God?

A question that’s been asked
By many souls from every generation
Debated by theologians
Discussed by philosophers
Cried out from fox holes
Prayed at a loved one’s side

Why did my spouse die?
Why did my family die in a storm?
Why did my marriage fail?
Why did I lose everything?
Why did I get sick?
Why me God?

The answer is never clear
But there are lessons to learn
We only need to look beyond our problems
To listen to a wise friend
To learn to appreciate what we have
To learn what is important

To be in the moment
To have an open heart and mind
To see through the eyes of God
To listen with the ears of God
To love others as God loves us
To forgive as Jesus forgives us

  1. Beautifully expressed!
    I believe that suffering draws us closer to God’s heart. Gives us a compassionate heart. Teaches us to forgive. They are hard lessons — but nothing that Jesus himself doesn’t know. Many blessings to you this Easter week.
