The message of the cross was foolishness to me, because I was in the process of perishing.
The next time you find yourself complaining about the government or leaders in any other sector of life, take some time to be thankful and pray for integrity instead. It will help adjust your perspective and help you to see God’s blessings and help you to become a blessing.
From Old Testament times we have a picture of God as a shepherd who is searching for those whom he cares for, even in bad weather. Even in tough times. Even when we have turned to go the opposite direction.
Blocking out the bad days have never occurred to me. If I did so, I probably wouldn’t fully appreciate the good days. Like the song “Be Grateful” says, “God has not promised me sunshine. That’s not the way it’s going to be. But a little rain mixed with God’s sunshine. A little pain makes me appreciate the good times.”
God never promised us all good days, but He promised to carry us through all days, good or bad. I place all I have in His hands. And all of my good days outweigh my bad days, so I won’t complain.
We don’t understand what God is up to. And you know what? It frustrates us.
You have faith, but now you do something with it. You increase your effort. You R.E.A.C.H. further than ever before.
