You wake up to a strange sound down the hallway. As you get out of bed to explore, you discover the toilet is overflowing in the kid’s bathroom. Ugh!
You find yourself stopped on the interstate in traffic. Your smart phone shows it’s backed up for miles. Really!
Your computer at work freezes up then crashes. No matter what you do, it will not restart. Why me?
Your casserole is almost finished cooking in the stove when you get distracted. By the time you return, it’s burnt. Help!
Ever had one of those days? Days, I have weeks like those! Sometimes it can seem as if the world is against you or at the very least, certainly not for you.
Truth is, we live in a broken world under a curse. Life isn’t supposed to run effectively and efficiently. Things don’t make sense and always turn out right. Frustration and disappointment are familiar outcomes.
But when you know the Creator and Redeemer of this world, your outlook should be decidedly different even if the temporal results seem unfavorable. God knows what He’s doing in your life – even if it seems to be falling apart at the seams. Trust His plan. He’ll see you through to the other side.
