Why or What?

“If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” – Mary Engelbreit

Often when people go through difficult seasons of life they seem to want the big question: ‘why?’  “Why me?” or “Why would a good God let something bad happen to me?”   Scripture says bad things happen to both the just and unjust (Matt. 5:45). You cannot always control the circumstances you’re in, but you can control your response to the circumstances.  Although often we can’t explain why, we can always ask, ‘what?’ “What am I going to do about it?”  Or “God, in this season what do you want to teach me?”

The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble, And those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee (Psalm 9:9, NLT).
