Enough Lord, I get it, its not about 'why me’… Its about giving thanks rather
than complaining, its about
living in wonder at your
goodness and mercy and grace…
Its about realizing that no matter
what we go through in life, be it
sickness, pain or poverty, be it
death itself, Gods love will bring
us through to victory.

Why Me God? Why me...

  1. 1. Why me God?
  2. 2. Why me God? I wonder how often we raise our voices to shout out these words when in pain.
  3. 3. How often have we questioned; why God? Why me Lord? Why my children? Why did you allow this to happen? Why this sickness? Why will you not heal me? Why? Why? Why?
  4. 4. There are a thousand WHYS that snugly fit into a thousand reasons why we cry out in such a way to God.

  17. 17. WHY ME GOD?
  18. 18. Why me my God, why me? How is it that you don't always accuse, rebuke and contend with me? How is it that youre not angry with me all the time?
  19. 19. Why Lord? Why have you not punished me according to my sins? Why have you not rewarded me according to my iniquities?
  20. 20. Why God, why are your mercy and your loving kindness so great toward me when I fear, worship and honour you?
  21. 21. Why Lord? Why would you want to remove my transgressions as far as the east is from the west from me ?
  22. 22. Why dear God why? Why do you pity me as a father pities his children? Is it that you know my frame that I am dust, that my days are as grass, as a flower of the field, here today, gone tomorrow?
  23. 23. WHY ME GOD?
  24. 24. Why Lord? Why is your mercy toward me from everlasting to everlasting and your righteousness unto my children's children?
  25. 25. This sets the WHY in its rightful place, doesn't it?
  26. 26. Why on earth would God care for us at all? Why would he consider us, sick or not? In poverty or plenty, why would he heal us, forgive and save us, why?
  27. 27. ‘Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, (be oblivious to you) yet will I not forget you.’
