“HAVING A BAD DAY . . . OR A BAD LIFE?”

“For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”  1Peter 3:17 NIV

Read:  1Peter 3:8-17

Are you having a bad day or have you given up and settled into the idea you are just having a bad life?    We all have a bad day.   We shouldn’t but we do.   If you have given up and accepted you are having a bad life, ask yourself why.

 

Some days things go wrong.  The alarm did not go off.    Putting your shoes on and your shoelace breaks.   One of the kids does not get out of bed.  You get caught on the freeway behind a five car accident.   Your boss wants your project due next week on his desk today.   Then, you discover you left your wallet at home and have no money for lunch.

What really went wrong was GOD gave you a way out and you did not accept it.   We just celebrated Resurrection Sunday, the day JESUS fulfilled HIS promise to take on all our sins.  The negative way we respond to all of our problems of a bad day can be one of those sins.   Our attitude can make a bad day a good day when we take it all to JESUS.

 

If you think you are having a bad life, reread the above paragraph and multiply it by 365 and again for the number of years things have gone wrong.  A bad life is the total of number of bad days we allowed to control us.  GOD gave us a way out.

Turning all your problems of a bad day over to our LORD will give you a good day, maybe not a great day, but a much better day.  Do this daily and you will have a good life.  GOD gave you a way out of a bad situation.  Lay it at the foot of the Cross and say “THANK YOU JESUS!”

Today’s prayer:  “JESUS MY LORD, Thank YOU for taking on all my sins, problems and worries.   Now, I can have peace in this evil world.   YOU have given me a good day in place of a bad day.  Amen.”
