WHY ME LORD?



Why Me?
I am busy. I have way too much to do to be inconvenienced with the fact that I lost my wallet. Or maybe it was stolen? I don’t know, I do know that I am angry. Tonight is the Pumpkin Patch Bash at church, and I am not ready. I still have so much to do and now, I have to drive to the places I have been, go to the bank, cancel my credit cards. "WHY ME LORD?! It is too much right now". And HE said “WHY NOT YOU?”
As I am driving back from the bank, thinking of the hour I’ve just lost, I see a toddler walking up the street, with no parent anywhere in sight. I pull over, jump out of my car, and grab the baby before he can go into the street. As I am holding this child, trying not to think of what could have been, I am so scared. I find the house two doors down, and knock on the door. They answer, having no idea how close their family was to a tragedy, and take the baby from me. Driving back to work, no longer angry at the hour I’ve lost, the Lord speaks to me and says “What was too much for you, was exactly enough for that baby”

Only a true believer can understand how each and every action is in God's plan for you. Amazing works, and amazing journaling!

Everything happens for a reason.
I have learned over the years that you do not look at the negative event and see only the negative.
Look deep to find the positive. You saved that family from experiencing a tragedy, but more you rescued the child...and she gave you peace knowing that was what you were supposed to do.
I would say 'enjoy' all aspects of your lifes journey, but I think it is more 'learn from' all aspects of our lifes journey.
Anyway best to you in this lifes journey m'dear.
