They say, it’s the WHY that will drive you to move forward. It’s the reason behind that gives you the will to take another step.
But what if you can’t find the reason? What if you don’t know the purpose why things happened? I bet many would fall…
Then I asked myself, “What keeps me then going when I don’t understand?”. I pondered on the question while examining my heart and I came up with this answer: it’s first knowing the main reason behind all the why’s. It’s like I aim to give my best at work because I want to be a good testimony or I give because I want to be a blessing to others… but behind all the WHY’s I could think of, I do things because I am loved by GOD and I love HIM. So if my work will be shaken or how the people will see me, or everything else, even if I don’t understand, I keep on keeping on because I know that my GOD knows best and I am secured in His love… And that is my bigger why.
I think that’s one big difference from the world. If you have a clearer understanding of the bigger WHY, you know where to run. Everyone needs a strong ground to stand on… something that will never change through all seasons and there’s only one I can think of: HIS love.
So as for me, I’ll keep on declaring, in high or low season, I will praise GOD.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1, NLT
