I was in the garden one day pulling out the weeds from the ground, and as I walked past the window and saw my reflection, I looked at myself and thought, “Wow, this is my life.”

After this I considered the countless number of individuals who have ever lived on the planet and thought the same thing.

I thought about how many people that are actually on the planet at one time, with numerous thoughts going through the minds of each one. It’s incomprehensible to think that God knows each and every one of them.

Then I began to think about the vast number of cultures across the world, and the many ideologies that people hold. How is it that I ended up with my own?

I didn’t choose to be brought up in a Christian home.

I didn’t choose to be brought up with one sibling in a single-parent home.

All these contemplations raised the probably most asked question in human history.

Why?

Why do good things happen?

Why do bad things happen?

Why am I me?

Why does anything happen?

Why?

We’ve been asking this one question since forever.

But the truth is that we were told how to find the answer but we gave up looking.

The truth is that God said “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”[1]

The truth is that Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”[2]

The truth is that that answer came, but we rejected it because we didn’t understand it.

The truth is that we cannot make up our own truth; we cannot fabricate ourselves an answer.

The truth is that there is a truth and there is an answer.

“He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.”[3]

It is Jesus.

So when life compels you to ask the question ‘why?’ – which it will – remember that there is an answer.

[3] John 14:17 NLT

  1. Jesus Christ is the Truth, He said as many that seek him Will find him. My prayer is let’s not miss the Truth because of arrogance and pride.
