In good times and bad, God is the reason. We have all had that good day when everything is going our way. We think to ourselves, “This is my lucky day; I am doing everything right today!” While on our bad days, we may place blame and think, “God, where are you?” It is human nature, but it’s not the whole story.
The truth is God is always with us in good and in bad. On good days, He is shining down on us, celebrating with us. On bad days, He is with us, holding us up and surrounding us with comfort to help us make it through the rough patch.
We are all very quick to put the glory on ourselves for the good times, forgetting to say, “Thank you Lord, for the blessings that have been sent our way.” We are just as quick to blame others when things go bad; “Where are you, why did you let this happen to me?” We forget how much worse things could be if God wasn’t lifting and surrounding us with love and comfort. God is with us always.
We live in a world where good and bad coexist. There is confusion and darkness. We must be the light that shines hope. God protects, guides, and shows us the light. We cannot be too proud. One light is all that it takes to spread hope like a wild fire. Share your light, and share the spirit of love of Jesus Christ!
Join us on Sunday mornings… You’ll be glad you did!
