Questioning How Instead of Why

"As I slowly began to acknowledge His will be done, I also began realizing it is through His desires that He will help me. If I am willing to accept His will, and if I am willing to allow Him to equip me. If I am willing to be open to His guidance." We all struggle at times with a "why" when it comes to God's will.

However, I can't find more than 24 hours a day in my life, and try as hard as I can, I don't have the energy when everyone else is asleep around me at the end of the day, to break out my computer to write.
