Why Me?

Due to some things going on in my life; I have caught myself asking Why Me? Why Me?, I am good person. Why me? I try my very best to love my fellow neighbor, take care of my family and be a blessing to the down trodden and weary. I take the time to encourage others. I am feeling hurt, anger, sadness, judgement, insecurity and some depression thrown in and those are just a few of the emotions I can name right now. But then God speaks to me and tells me to look at his son whom never did anything wrong and loved and cared for others including the people that hated him and look how he was treated. "But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed." Isaiah 53:5 This selfless act Jesus completed so that we could be free from sin. I need to look at it as Why Not Me! "And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

God does not create accidents and sometimes there is rain!  "There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens" Ecclesiastes 3:1 He does everything with purpose, perfect timing and concise precision. Everything happens for a reason and when I pray I need to pray onto his will not my own. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,"  "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9 
God is teaching me exactly what I need to know and I will trust him and keep on following Jesus through this storm and praise him along the way. God has never steered me wrong!  "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19 and my faith will only grow.  "For we live by faith, not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7 

Lord thank you for this season of rain! I know that you are working out things that need to be worked out and I trust you. I lay everything I am feeling at your feet. You are molding me and making me new and I will rise above with you as my ultimate strength in Jesus name Amen!

  1. Amber, I am praying for you tonight about your trials. I love how you are turning to the Lord with what you are going through. Our difficulty and heartache makes us better able to help others that are going through similar circumstances and after just a few minutes on your blog I can already see your heart for the Lord. Prayerfully yours.
