Why not Me?

I have heard “why me?” far too many times to even shrug my shoulders anymore…..my mindset has always been “why not Me?”
Who do I think I am that I would be immune from any of life’s trials and tribulations? Why not? why not ME? I have endured and had more than my share of pain and sorrow but….I lift up my eyes to the Lord from whom comes my strength and so….
Hey that can be said about the good things in life too and that is what I aim to focus on…..at least for today. Who knows what tomorrow may bring?
But for today, let me share a few “Why not Me’s”….
Millions of people die daily from cancer. Why not me? I am a bilateral breast cancer survivor!
People live in cold unforgiving climates. Why not me? I live in beautiful lush Bermuda!
People are childless and barren. Why not me? I have an amazing family surrounding me.
People are lonely and forelorn. Why not me? I have friends and family in many different places.
People are lost and know not love. Why not me? I know my God is my fortress and strength.
I can only surmise that I have been blessed beyond measure. Why not YOU?
Realistically I know that we ALL will have troubles and difficulties and there is NO reason as to why some suffer more than others. There is no right or wrong answer. I can only say that to seek first God….then He will make a way. Because, you see, without Him, none of these things matter. All the riches in the world are nothing. All the friends and family can not bring peace to a grieving and lost soul. Only He can fill us and bring us true peace in the midst of anything.
