Everything happens for the good

Value- Peace

Sub value- Patience, Forbearance

 

 

 

Everything happens for a reason

Whatever happens, happens for Good!

However we may not understand it; particularly if it is not to our liking. The following story portrays the same effectively.

 

Me: God, can I ask you a question?

God: Sure.

Me: Promise you won’t get mad.

God: I promise.

Me (reprovingly): why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do you mean?

Me (petulantly): Well, I woke up late.

God: Yes.

Me (crossly): My car took forever to start.

God: Okay.

Me ( grumbling): At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

God: Huummm.

Me (irritated): On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.

God: All right.

Me ( frustrated): And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me: (humbled): OH…

GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me: (embarrassed): Ok…

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false information, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me: (in awe) I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m sorry God.

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me…..in all things, the good and the bad.

Me: I will trust you.

God: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God, and I love looking after my children.

Learning

Having patience and forbearance for things that are not under our control. Do one’s best, have the right attitude, develop tolerance and we will know that whatever happens, happens for the best. There is always a learning in that.
