Why? Why am I living in this time and place?
“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.” William Barclay
Why do I say the things that I say/
Will they make a difference to others today?
Why am I living in this time and place?
Can I truly overcome the challenges that I face?
Why am I always searching, wanting to do more?
Will I have the courage to step through the next open door?
Why was I born, what is life’s purpose for me?
Will I ever discover who I am truly meant to be?

Life is full of questions isn’t it? Granted, they are not always as heavy as the ones I asked in my poem above, but surely we’ve all asked similar ones from time to time. Given the life changing events that I’ve experienced recently, I find myself asking “why?” quite frequently. Sometimes the answers are revealed to me quickly and quite obviously. Yet there are many for which I am still seeking a response.
“Trust in the Lord and lean not onto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
I’ve come to realize that I may never know or understand the reasons for the “whys” in my life…and honestly, that’s okay. When it comes to asking “why” I suppose the “who” is the more important question. For I know that God holds all of the answers in my life…what more could I ask for?
When your heart is full of questions, who, what, and why, may you turn to the Lord God, for goodness, love and mercy you will always find in His reply.
Peace and love,
