Bad Things

Yesterday we talked about being thankful for the good things in our lives. Today we will talk about being thankful for the bad things in our lives.
I have had many bad things happen to me. I almost lost my baby before she was born. Another time, I almost died from a serious infection. And I have been in three car accidents. It’s not easy to thank God for these kinds of things.
But it is important to tell God we are thankful for the bad things that happen to us — even if we don’t feel thankful. After the bad has ended, we will see that God can bring good from bad. God can use bad things to bless us. Verse 28 of our Bible Reading says, “We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. These are the people God chose, because that was his plan.” God has promised to always do what is best for us.
Thank God right now for the bad things and for the good things that He will make happen in your life.
