Even on or bad days, God is still with us
Have you ever had a bad day in your life? I mean this day was a day that you could not wait for it be over. This is a day where it seemed like if there was anything that could go wrong, went wrong. We have all had one or two bad days where we just felt like giving up.
I woke up one morning like any other morning, or so I thought. I got up, made my lunch and was getting ready for the day. I got out my cloths only to realize that they were wrinkled. So I ironed them, and looked at the clock. 6:47am. Oh no I am going to be late! I get in my car and go to work. I clocked in 10 minutes late, so I just put my things in my locker and I went to see my assignment. You are the only tech here Amanda. Oh no!!! I new what that meant. It was going to be a interesting day. I did the best I could but my day went from bad to worse. By 5:00pm, I was in tears and I could not take it anymore!!!! I did not want anyone to see me upset so I went to the back and I started to pray. I new if anyone could help me, it was God. I got out my phone and I did the only thing I knew to do. I looked up scriptures for when you are having a bad day.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
What is this scripture in Ecclesiastes telling us? It is telling us this; we will have times in our lives that are good, and we will have those times in our lives that are bad. Knowing that both of these times come from God, and he knows about everything we are facing. Nothing takes God by surprise, because he made us, and he knew that day was coming before we did.
After I read this scripture, I felt better. I prayed and I asked God to help me get through the rest of the day and I had a better day after that. Sometimes we want to wallow in pity, because we really don't know how to handle a bad day. But we must realize that God allow things to happen in our lives to make us strong. Even though we may have our bad days, we need to look to God to give us the peace that we will need to make it through.
