I have sorrow, sadness, and disappointment-Why?

Not my life, it was not to be like this.

I suffer in my soul. Why?

Not my life, it was not to be like this.

Why Lord? Why?

Keep asking why, not of what is behind, but what lies ahead.

Why am I still breathing Lord?

The Lord knows; He has a why in mind for you-who ask why?

He says in Love, My why has nothing to do with the why you ask of.

My why is the life I have planned for you, the love I love you with, The plan that still lies ahead waiting, until your last breath is taken.

The Lord died for our sins, was buried and rose the third day. He loves us enough that we can be freed from the whys from behind and know of the whys ahead. Place your faith in Christ, and you will find the truth of why.
