He who has a Why



It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, your life purpose will always occupy your thoughts, sometimes to the point of utter frustration. But as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “He who has a why can endure any how.” 

We first ask, “Why am I here?” And say you got an answer, from God directly or through a source on earth in revelation. Then, as you look upon this mission that seems so bleak and impossible, you ask, “How do I do that?” But the thing is, you don’t have to ask that question. Once you have the “Why,” it doesn’t matter what the “How” is. The why should be the only thing you worry about. Let God take care of the how. 

How should I do this? No. Why should I do this? 

Because it’s my God-given purpose.

  1. Sometimes the how hurts. Knowing the why is what makes us able to endure the how.
