Why? A question we have no doubt asked many times, Why? Perhaps you have lost a loved one, faced hardship or everything just seems to be going wrong in your life. So we stop, and we ask why? Why me, why now, why? But ask yourself this instead, does the answer to that question change the journey you are on? If you knew why your loved one was taken from you, would it make it easier to deal with the loss? If you knew why you lost your job, would you be able to care for your family any better? Perhaps the question we should truly be asking during these times of adversity is… What’s next? There is a plan; there is a reason for every single action that takes place in your life. We don’t have to know why they occur to know they are meant to push us forward. The more we question the journey the harder it is to see the path. Although these times may be hard, they will not last forever. In time our purpose is revealed and only then will that question be answered, Why?
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18”
