I Am Asking You God-Why?

I Am Asking You God-Why?

I am asking you, God. 

Why?

Why do you place a dream in a heart to then deny the fruition of it?

Why do you inspire a message for it to be ignored?

Why do you show a possibility that will never be fully known?

I am asking you, God.

Why?

Why do you give a voice for it to be silenced by the whims of man?

Why do you fill a heart with longing to serve but allow shackles to remain?

Why do you give a vision to one but allow it to be fulfilled by another?

I am asking you, God.

Why?

Why can't the broken be mended?

Why can't the wounded be healed?

Why can't will the voiceless be heard?

Why can't the heartbroken receive comfort?

Why do you seem so distant even as you promise to remain near?

I AM ASKING YOU.

GOD.

MY GOD.

WHY?

And yet.

And yet.

Even in the midst of my frustration and sense of helplessness, I will always say with the prophet…

"Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends!

His mercies never cease.Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”

The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.
So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord."
Lamentations 3:21-26 NLT

  1. AMEN! I have the same why questions, yet I choose to believe that God is good, that His ways are higher than mine, His thoughts greater. It’s about leaning in and learning to trust Him, continually, even while asking the questions.

    • Yes! We can ask the tough (even painful questions) while remembering God is so good, so great. We can indeed lean on Him even when we cannot see the immediate answer or result. :)
