Workshop 2013 Spring Week 4: What, Not Why
We learned last night that focusing on the “why” questions can lead you into getting stuck and from a pragmatic view, circumvent the vibrant, transformed life that God so much wants you to have here on earth. Consider moving to the “what” side of your situation. Create a list of “what” questions for the trial you are currently experiencing. (For example, “What part of my character is God working on in this trial?” or “What changes in my relationships could I make to better endure this trial?”) Ask God these questions each day for a week. And remember, God answers in his time, not ours. Stop, listen and watch with expectation for his responses.
