WHY ME – Special thoughts on gratitude

I asked God why I wasn’t beautiful. And He showed me a woman more beautiful than any other, who was ugly because of her vanity.

I asked God why I wasn’t rich. And He showed me a man with the wealth of a thousand kings, who was lonely, and had no one to share it with.

I asked God why he’d allowed me to become old. And He showed me a boy of 16, who lay dead at the scene of a car accident.

I asked God why I didn’t have a bigger house. And He showed me a family of six, who’d just been evicted from their tiny shack, and were forced to live on the street.

I asked God why I had to work. And He showed me a man who couldn’t find a decent job, because he’d never learned to read.

I asked God why I wasn’t more popular. And He showed me a socialite with a thousand friends, who all left the moment the money and parties were no longer there.

I asked God why I wasn’t smarter. And He showed me a natural born genius, who was serving life in prison for making ill use of his knowledge.

I asked God why He put up with a thankless sinner like me. And He showed me His Bible, and His Son who took my place at the judgment.

And I knew then how much He loved me.

What’s bothering you today? Are your problems weighing heavy on your heart? Cheer up and know that you are loved.
When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need!
