Meeting God in the “Why?”

Throughout my life, I have asked a series of whys. Today was one of those days. This morning, a tragedy that hit close to home has thrown my family for a loop. Death comes to us all, but not all of us experience it tragically. It seems so surreal. I know that those who were closer to this individual are asking more whys than I am, and I am praying that they find God in the whys.

As you read throughout Scripture, you will see many men and women of God asking that question. Don’t let some self-righteous person guilt-trip you for asking God “Why?” He delights in giving you His perspective. It is in these times that we seek Him more. 

In 2012-2013, I asked God this question often. Why am I experiencing anxiety? Why is my family falling apart? Why didn’t you let me have a hip condition instead of my son? Why is ministry as I know it about to be over? Through all this, I found God in the whys.

Maybe you are asking God “Why?” today. If you seek Him, you will find Him. May this song encourage you.
