Why God

Austin French has a song entitled, Why God. When I initially heard the song, I admit, I was put off a bit until I reached about midway through the song until the end:

I don’t understand
But I understand

Why God, I need You
It’s, why God, I run to Your arms
Over and over again
It’s why God, I cling to Your love
And hold on for dear life
And I find, You are right by my side, ooh…

Give me a faith stronger than I have
I need to know when it hurts this bad
That You hold my heart when it breaks
And I’m not alone in this place

That’s why God, I need You
Why God, I run to Your arms
Over and over again
It’s, why God, I cling to Your love
And hold on for dear life
And I find, You are right by my side
Always right by my side
Even here in the why… God

It isn’t so much of a question of Why God? Rather an understanding of Why God. Why we need Him, especially in the trials of life.

I was asked recently, Why do you think allowed x,y,z to happen? Truth to be told, I don’t know, those aren’t the why’s I try to question or guess at. Rather, as in the Austin French song, I find comfort in knowing that it’s why even though trials of life come, God is with us through them all, whether or not we understand. Because, honestly, there are some things occuring in my life both now and in the past that I don’t understand. I don’t have to question God why? Instead, I know, He’s there in every why and He is the reason why we can be still even in the midst of the chaos and the confusion. Because of the trials and the struggles of life, we are reminded why we need Him. The struggles of life aren’t a time to question God, rather acknowledge Him. He is for us and He is with us.
