Wowzer! What! A! Day!

1 Thessalonians 5:18
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

My student looked at me and said, “I think I fit a whole week into today!”  All, I could do was look at her and say, “Amen, Sister!”

Wowzer! What. A. Day!

It started with a dead battery in my car.  Followed by $183 mischarge to my credit card.  Next came a painful phone call to my doctor’s office who cannot get me in until December 11th.  Did I mention I did this whole day without one arm?  I have popped the tendon in my left elbow and have to keep it in a sling.

Oh, and please do not get me started on drama club after school!  We are two weeks from curtain and my crew still does not know their lines or blocking. It was painful to watch!

So, what can I do about all of this?

Nothing.

What am I doing?

Whining!

Why?

Because I am human and contrary to some people’s beliefs, Christians do not come equipped with rainbows, unicorns and pixie dust!

We get to have long days.  We get to have bad days.  We get to have Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Days!

It is OK.  It doesn’t mean God is mad at us.  It doesn’t mean we have done something wrong.  Hold on to your hats, but it doesn’t even mean Satan is out to get us.  Sometimes they are just terrible, horrible, no good very bad days.

So what do Christians do about them?  We thank God and move on.  God has called us to thank him in all circumstances.

Besides, I know exactly what I am going to thank him for right now.

THANK YOU GOD THIS DAY IS OVER!

  1. Amen, Sister! And I love Alexander! I played a game with some kids last night. I gave them a terrible situation and they had to tell me how they could be thankful in it. By the end, they were shouting out, “I want a terrible situation!” LOL It was a great night to hear how (from kids) we can be thankful to God in ALL situations – even the terrible ones. Thank you for your ministry, Tabetha!
