What Is Your Why?

What Is Your Why?

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share something with you today, hoping that you ask yourself, “What is my why?”

Take a moment, think about it as you read about mine.

My why didn’t come from my background. It didn’t come from being taught, and it certainly didn’t come from me being in my position.

It came because I had a moment with God where everything changed.

In the past, I thought I was at a point where I was seeking God for more, doing more, and just following the path He made for me. However, I was wrong; being easily distracted led me to the lesson of a lifetime early in my life.

At what I thought was a spiritual peak, a place where I felt untouchable and on top of the world, I fell. I landed in what seemed to be a dark spiritual pit.

Torment lasted for days on end. My body experienced chills at 3am in the morning. I felt like I could literally see death in my home and anxiety, fear, and worry plagued me.

How did I get here? What did I do?

I fell into this because I longed for love that I knew couldn’t be fulfilled by anyone in this world, but I still ran after it. I hoped for someone to hold me and be there, yet I never allowed it. And instead of doing the necessary to stay on track, I slipped further and further off path. My spiritual judgement about everything became so clouded that I couldn’t see God.

I couldn’t find Him, and I forgot about Him.

I forgot He held me when I was afraid to play piano in front of others. I forgot how He placed me in high places because of the gifts and talents He had given me. I forgot how He continuously loved me still after I played the harlot to other idols that I knew were bad for me.

You see, one thing I know now,

My “why I love God” is because He never forgot about me when I forgot about Him.

He is always there to hold me, to love me, to show me I am His own. Even when I pushed away, He remained the same. He never turned His back on me. For human beings, we would give up on situations like this. Our efforts of trying constantly over and over again with no reciprocation would create hopelessness.

But not with God.

His efforts always continue and He always, always, always gets our attention.

And the last time He got my attention on a grandiose level,

I turned to Him and never looked back.

My why comes from the grace, mercy, and love that He continuously shows me.

What’s your why? Why do you love God?

*And if you don’t know yet, what’s stopping you from finding out?

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8

  1. Amen to that transparency!
    My “WHY”, has to do with Christ showing me that I was an enemy of God. That all of the sin I committed was against Him and not anyone else. He showed my just how filthy I was…my nastiness!!! In the same moment, in the midst of my brokenness with tears running down my face, I heard His voice, I received His forgiveness. He welcomed me into His family! Now that’s love! That is my “WHY”.
    Grateful to be adopted into God’s family!

  3. I understand where you’re coming from and how is easy to get distracted by the things of life. I had almost lost my best friend which was God. I left the church and God at the same time. Until I was sleeping in my bed and God told me before I leave this earth I will give him the Glory.
