A Kiss from Rose | Why Come

"Why come" isn't proper English; however, many children may use this phrase when learning to talk while asking questions. When you hear the words, many understand this is a question of deep concern for a child. "Why come, grandma? I can't have my cake now?" "Why come I can't take my toy with me?" "I got to go to bed; why come?" "Why come is a serious matter to a three and four-year-old. Some may have chuckled at the title of today's messages, remembering their "why come" questions.

How many have ever heard or said these "Why come" questions?

"Why come" my dad hasn't come to get me yet?

"Why come" my mom hasn't come to get me yet?

"Why come" they are treating only me mean?

"Why come" I can't go to their house?

"Why come" my mom is always crying?

"Why come" are you always on your knees talking to God?

"Why come" the sky is blue?

"Why come" daddy (or mommy) left? Kids get deep in the business, don't they?

"Why come" I'm always at grandma's house?

These questions were always valid. The age never mattered to the person asking the question. The child wanted answers to what they observed or what was going on in their life.

Well, even as adults, we have some "why come" questions. We are God's children, and more often than not, we ask Him questions, too. Adults' "why come" is a serious matter as well.

Lord, "why come" this is happening to me?

Lord, "why come" I am not where I want to be in life?

Lord, "why come" you called my parent home; I was not ready?

Lord, "why come" they got blessed, and I did not?

Let's change the "Lord, why come" to Lord, I trust! Let's start believing in God, His process, purpose, and will. Trust God that what is happening to you is happening for you.

We question God more than we question ourselves and our choices and decisions.

Come on, somebody! Please help me out! I am going to repeat that sentence.

We question God more than we question ourselves and our choices and decisions.

"Why come" your choices. "Why come" your decisions.

**Friendly reminder, we are in the middle of December; let's not forget to select one day you will fast from 8-12 noon. Also, please do not forget to save. This is our financial fast, and faith without work is dead. Amen? Amen!
