Often times things or incidents, take away the reality, we should get from a situation . I am sure all of you have went through a terrible season in your life, and cried out, “Why Me Lord?”
I know that I have said this many times in my life when I didn’t enjoy the inconvenience a person or situation placed in my life. The game of chess requires patience and time, if you don’t look at each possible move in your life, you have the potential of losing the game quick.
It has always been amazing to me, when a chess game takes longer periods of time, because neither opponent wants to “lose the game.” But life isn’t it the same way? Do we take longer thoughts when we see the impact of our choices? Those individuals that suffer from addictions, have only one thought continuously – – where am I going to get my next fix?
Being content with our lives, I believe allow us to really understand how blessed we are, and being thankful for – -what I have – – and not being sad or blue because someone has something I don’t have. Each of us have blessings I think are uniquely designed to help us AND help others.
It is easy to be frustrated about anything, but what if you looked at your situation differently, for the good things in your life versus the bad things. Just suppose you think of this, “What if you didn’t have the good things in your life?
Why me? Only suggest a simple answer if I am trusting God to be for “all the things” in my life, I am certain he will carefully help me through the difficult seasons as well. Blessings are from two people — those who know they’re blessed — and those who want to bless. I strive to be both, but admit many times my focus is on me and not others.
Survey your surroundings and ask yourself:
Do I thank God for the blessings in my life?
Do I place more focus on the things that irritate me?
Do I allow myself to be a blessing to those that need to see and feel a real blessing?
Here is the answer to the question why me.
Suffering for Doing Good. Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. (1 Peter 3:8-9)
