Why Me Lord?

How many times do we say this?    It’s usually because I’m having a pity party and I can hang with the best of them when I’m feeling sorry for myself or my situation.     But last night I read something on my Facebook page that really affected me.     Later, sitting in the bathtub (does that happen to you?) the words to this song came to me.

WHY ME LORD?

Why me Lord, what have I ever done to deserve even one, of the pleasures I’ve known.

Tell me Lord, what did I ever do, that was worth love from you, or the kindness you’ve shown.

Lord help me Jesus, I’ve wasted it so, help me Jesus, I know what I am, now that I know, that I’ve needed you so, help me Jesus, my soul’s in your hand.

Tell me Lord, if you think there’s a way that I can repay all I’ve taken from you.   Maybe Lord, I can show someone else, what I’ve been through myself, on my way back to you.

Lord help me Jesus, I’ve wasted it so help me Jesus, I know what I am.   Now that I know that I’ve needed you so help me Jesus, my soul’s in your hand.

A plea for prayers came from a fellow blogger who I met last summer at her little vintage shop in Sylacauga, Alabama.   Her friend’s cancer is not responding to treatment and Hospice is being called in today.    Apparently the lady is at peace with her prognosis but wants to see her grandchild due in October.   

Life is a vapor.    It’s over in an instant.   But so many times we moan and groan our way through life feeling sorry for ourselves, wasting our days away.   I wonder if I found out some devastating health news for myself, how would I spend my remaining days?  Instead of asking “Why Me Lord” in such a negative way, I really should be asking what have I ever done to deserve the love of God.   

Let’s keep Lena Taylor in our prayers.    Thank you.

Oh, my goodness!!!!! First, I was reading your post thinking how meaningful it was, and then I saw Lena's name - I know Lena! She used to go to my church here in Atlanta many, many, many years ago, when my kids were very young -over 20 years ago. She actually went to high school with my husband! I haven't seen her in all those years, but still remember her fondly. What a shocker. Linca

I've been following your blog for a few weeks now...I couldn't have read this post at any better time. I just had my second miscarriage of the year two days ago and I have been feeling so down because of the situation. Thank you for posting this.

Thanks for posting that Judy. It was really sweet. I know Lena will appreciate all prayers. I dread the day we have to say good bye, but know that life is so short. We'll get to see her again in no time at all.

You are right that too often we ask "Why me?" in a negative way, but we have so many more blessings than challenges to dwell on. Will keep this lady in my prayers.

I love that Johnny Cash song. I've put some old gospel songs on my ipod that I love to sing, LOUD in the car while driving. This is one of them. Oh Happy Day, of course Amazing Grace. It feels reallllly good to sing at the top of your lungs to these.
