Hey Majestic Daughter! What’s happening?
Have you ever been in a season where you question your “WHY”?
This 3-letter word is a loaded with thoughtless possibilities that are often the distorted truth of the spiritual reality to your why. This 3-letter word causes so many of us including myself great anxiety trying to figure out the why.
Why am I here?
Why does it have to be like this?
Some of us are #BRAVE enough to say to ourselves and even others…Why not you?!
When we release this loaded question, it leads to more questions which may be something that we may never know the answer too.
At the end of last year, I went through a dark and despairing season of trying to understand my why. Why did I have to go back to work? I spent so much time trying to find the answer to the why that I started being resentful towards God because I felt like He had lied to me.
To be totally transparent, I was mad at God.
To be totally transparent, I was mad at God. Despite my emotional self-God still loved me enough to remind me that His promise still stood no matter if my natural circumstances where changing.
I learned that asking why isn’t always the best question to ask. What I really needed was clarity about my now and even my future. Don’t you just hate it when you don’t know what’s next? I’ll be honest, if you won’t, I still have this control thing that I need Jesus to help me manage. Neither here nor there, I like to know what I know. But that’s not how this relationship thing with Jesus works – it’s about TRUST.
It was in forgetting the WHY that I found the courage to embrace my now. Are there days that a struggle and still want to quit because I don’t know what’s next? Yes! But I also have to #BE BRAVE enough to trust God even when I don’t know how this is going to come full circle.
In forgetting the why, He sends people on my job to me let me know I’m doing an amazing job, or my Christian sisters that text me to release a prophetic word. It is those moments that bring me an overwhelming sense of peace that I know God has a plan for my life.
You or I don’t have to have it all figured out.
You or I don’t have to have it all figured out. God handles that for us if we let Him. I don’t even feel the pressure to explain my why, but I do feel compelled to share my story.
A little bit of letting go of the why, will allow you to see the beauty in your now and trusting God with all the details of your next!
