? WHY ?
Asking WHY is perfectly normal. Asking WHY isn't unspiritual. However, if asking this question pushes us farther from God rather than drawing us closer to Him, it is the wrong question. .
If asking the WHY question doesn't offer hope, what will? The WHAT question.
. "Ok, so this is my reality, WHAT am I supposed to do with it?"
-WHAT can I learn from this?
-WHAT part of this is for my protection?
-WHAT other opportunities could God be providing?
-WHAT maturity could God be building into me?
Switching from the WHY to the WHAT question paves the road to parking our minds in a much better place.
Is it easy? NOPE. But it is a way to find perspective beyond situations where we feel God has allowed something in our lives we don't understand and we absolutely don't like. .
Dear Lord, I want to process everything I face in life through the filter of Your love. I know You love me. But sometimes it's just hard to understand the circumstances that come my way. I find myself consumed with trying to figure things out rather than looking for Your perspective and trusting You. Thank You for this new way to look at things. In Jesus' name, amen. .
