Bad Day, Good God
I had to look back at my own Facebook timeline to recall the last time I felt so badly. To my surprise it was only a few days ago. Yet, in my mind I feel like I’ve not felt this badly in months. My nerve pain is raging and my pain level is at least a 7 out of 10 right this moment. Isn’t it crazy how your present pain always “feels” like your worst pain.
I know I’ve had countless days of agony, but those are all in the past. I know I’ve had worse moments, but those moments are over. I guess the only value to those moments gone by is help with perspective. Somehow, someway God carried me through those dark days. That gives me hope that He will surely do it again.
Many assume that a believer should be able to deal with things much easier than most. I guess because we’ve got God on our side. The truth is even with God on your side life is tough. Some days seem easier, but many days require absolute faith in a never changing God. Often God is the only good thing you can count on to be good in your life. Everything else and everyone else is subject to change.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
