Spend the day, spend the night, asking why
No one can answer
Not the self-help gurus
Not the prophets or preachers
No one can say why things happen
Is it payback for some sin?
Why this keeps happening again and again
Even when I ask God why
He doesn’t give me an answer
But what He does give me is His grace
As just when this thorn really starts to cut
He sends someone or does something to lift me up
He reminds me He hears my cries
Even with my thorn, longer I can survive
Everyone has a thorn or problem that is persistent
Yet, God’s grace is sufficient.
Scripture Reference 2 Corinthians 12:7-9
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 12:8For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 12:9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most, if not all of us have some type of chronic problem. It could be constantly losing a job, it could be an illness, relationship issues or anything. God doesn’t necessarily make the problem go away no matter how much we pray or ask Him why we are plagued with. But what He does is give us the strength and resources to deal with the problem; as His grace is sufficient.
