Season of Why. Page 365/365.
This year I’ve been in the “why” stage of my life. Why didn’t this happen to me yet? Why didn’t I graduate when I thought I should? Why can’t the love of my life find me already? Why am I always feeling distant from so-called friends? Why why-why-why. The thing about “why,” is that it will stress you OUT. I honestly don’t know why things happen the way they do, but I do know that God has a plan, regardless.
During this "why" season, I had to remind myself (daily) that maybe God is preparing me for something greater and the “why’s” are the stepping stones for that something greater. Your "why" is important, you might not like it or understand it right now, but it is helping you in the long run. The thing I love about God is that He doesn’t dwell on the past. Instead, He is preparing us for the future. It probably sucks right now, and you keep doubting and asking why BUT thank God our struggles have an expiration date. The "why's" of life can hold us back from so much, so for 2019 let’s try not to ask so many “why” questions but instead let’s start trusting God completely! We have to be thankful for the “why’s” even if we don’t like them.
Remember Jeremiah 29:11 the next time you’re questioning the “why’s” of life.
“I say this because I know the plans that I have for you.” This message is from the Lord. “I have good plans for you. I don’t plan to hurt you. I plan to give you hope and a good future.” Jeremiah 29:11 ERV
Dear God, I’m tired of asking “why.” I’m tired of being frustrated because I want to figure everything out when you don’t even need my help. Help me to stop questioning You and learn to trust You fully. I want to get out of the driving seat and let You have control. I know You have a plan for my life, so instead of “why” questions help me to see “how” different situations are helping me in Jesus Name Amen. 💛
