A Really Bad Day...

There's a guy at a bar staring at his drink.

He sits and stares like this for half an hour.

Suddenly, a big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and slugs it all down. The poor man starts crying.

"Come on man, I was just joking," says the truck driver. "Here, I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man cry."

"No, it's not that," the man replies. "This day is the worst day of my life. First, I fall asleep and I get in late to work. My boss, outraged, fires me. When I leave the building to drive home, I find out my car is stolen! The police say that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I exit the cab, I leave my wallet and credit cards there and the cab driver just drives away."

"I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar."

"And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison."

Has anyone been their or enroot?

1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, or [as] an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

1Pe 4:16 Yet if [any man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.


How many of you are aware that many bad days “so to speak” will appear in our lives? How we respond speaks volumes as too who we are, and who’s we are. We are diamonds in the sight of God; most of us like the finished product of diamonds, but they go through so much pressure. Listen for a moment! Get a glimpse of this – we are already victorious, but we must go through the process presented to us by God.

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

What a powerful scripture! Every thing that happens to me is working out for my good, because a good God made me. So when life doesn’t seem to behave at times, just embrace it, God is working it out for your good. Remember the diamond! It’s beautiful when you receive it, but in went through HELL before it could shine. Blessings to all!
