This morning I woke to a Facebook Post my mother in law tagged me in.
It was a video of Eric Church, singing a new song that he wrote and performed this week at the Grand Ole Opry.
Eric was a headliner at Harvest 91 Music Festival in Las Vegas.
He performed on Friday, just 2 days before the shooting.
He wrote a song called “Why Not Me.” (Click Here to Watch)
The lyrics are filled with questions about why others were killed and why he was spared?
“I ask the GOD of all knowing wisdom, why you and why not me.”
I was so struck by this, it made me cry.
Not just little tears, but big.
It struck me because of the genuine questions that we may never get answers to this side of heaven.
I ask those questions sometimes.
When I think things aren’t fair.
When bad things happen to good people.
Of even when blessing seems to find me even when I don’t think I deserve it.
But here’s the point for me.
I can’t stay to focus on questions I can’t answer for to long.
There is even in this world that can’t / won’t ever be understood.
I am going to keep working on developing an attitude of gratitude.
I want to live in such a way that my One and only life makes as big of an impact, and positively impacts as many people as possible.
I talked to my son about this last night.
We have an opportunity every minute of every day to live a life that is unique.
I don’t want to waste time.
i don’t want to wast my life.
I want to live life to the fullest.
Be who GOD created me to be.
Love my wife.
Love my boys and raise men that are difference makers.
Help create a culture where people grow to develop their skills and abilities to the fullest.
I don’t know why I get to do the things that I get to.
I am blessed beyond measure.
I don’t want to take advantage of that anymore.
