Every human being will at one point or the other experience life’s uncertainties, unfulfilled promises, unpleasant situations, unfair treatments and undeserved pains.
The world is wired to give us roses with thorns, sunshine and rain, and a fair share of losses and gains. We must learn to find the blessings and lessons in every season of life.
We should not be quick to accuse God when bad things happen and then forget to acknowledge Him when we experience beautiful things. I hope this poem speaks to your soul.
If you have to ask “Why me?”
When it seems God can’t hear your plea,
When secret storms won’t let you be,
And haunting shadows are all you see.
When your jar of joy runs dry
And no one seems to hear your cry.
When funds are low and debts are high,
And you can only look down and sigh.
When the skies pour fiery raindrops,
And your field is full of dying crops.
When everything you hold dear flops
And your eyes brew bitter teardrops.
When you lay hopeless on a cold bed,
And it’s hard to see what lies ahead.
When you’ve forgotten what God said,
And needless noises fill your head.
When you seem not to have a lifeline,
And your noble dreams do not align.
When the twilight stars refuse to shine
And you are left without a positive sign…
Then, when God finally comes through,
When His countenance shines on you,
And He prepares a table before you,
will you be bold to ask “Why me” too?
Your pain has a purpose, my friend,
even if it’s hard for you to comprehend.
Trust the process, never condescend,
God is merciful and faithful to the end.

God is not like people, who lie; He is not a human who changes his mind. Whatever he promises, he does; He speaks, and it is done. Numbers 23: 19 (Good News Translation)
