Why Me, And Why Not Them?
There were times when I had asked God, “Why me and why not them? Why do I have all this comfort in my life, while others are struggling to get by? Oh Lord, here I’am surrounded by so many loved ones, yet there are those out there whom have no one to turn to! Oh Lord, here I’am in good health, yet there are those in so much pain! Oh Lord, please help me to understand this, how could this be fair?”
But then, I would remind myself that with every hardship comes ease…and this was my ease after many hardships.
My life is full of so much LIGHT only because I lived a life full of so much darkness.
How could I forget the moments of when I wanted to jump out of this world to avoid the pain?
How could I forget that every day was a struggle to keep going, keep breathing, keep moving, keep being – Because, it was a struggle. Majority of my past was.
But this…this is why God kept me alive: so I would know how it feels to be FREE after being tied down by disappointments in my previous years.
Yes, this is my ease after many hardships.
I have to remind myself that perhaps there are others out there that do not have the comforts of this world, but they do have hardships that will bring them closer to God. These very hardships that will make them stronger, as they made me. These very hardships that they will be rewarded for, if not in this life then surely in the hereafter.
The ease of this life is nothing compared to the ease and rewards of heaven. I must remember that, we must all remember that.
