I was on a church website the other day reading a profile of one of the staff members. He used several question and answer statements to help you get to know him. Questions like: What is my favorite book? Where would I most like to go on vacation? The one question he asked that has stuck in my mind is "if I could ask God one question what would it be?" I started thinking about that and the first thing that popped in my mind is "Why did God make men and women so different?'( You know you have asked the same question a million times.)But then the answer came to me: He had to create women or life would be boring.
Seriously, I started thinking about the question, "What would I ask God if I could only ask one question?" Here is what I came up with: "Why me? Lord, why did you pick me to create, love, cherish, and die for? Why did you choose me to carry on your work, to raise Godly children, to lead women to know you, to work beside my husband in his ministry? Why did you choose me to be your daughter? Why Me?" Like many of you I feel so unworthy most of the time.
In my lowly earthly mind I know God loves me and Christ died for me. But I want specifics so here is what I came up with: 1Corinthians 1:27-31 says "But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise;(I can be foolish) God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong ( I can also be weak). He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things- and the things that are not to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him." I have a feeling when HE answers me He will say, "I love you and I needed you to bring Me glory."
