Today’s Disappointment, Tomorrow’s Gift

I have learned the hard way that today’s disappointment, tragedy, or crisis, viewed a year later, may turn out to be one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Yet, I still have to remind myself of this each time something bad or tragic happens.

Words painting a rosier picture often fall on deaf ears during our difficult times. So what do we do?

There is no good answer to the question I just posed, for each of us pull ourselves out of the hole different ways, but one thing is for certain, and that is God is available to listen and help you work through those “Dark Nights of the Soul.”

God also provides us the morning sun, an evening breeze, the smell of honeysuckle, and a million other reminders of the beauty and love that is all around us. So if you find yourself wrestling with the latest tragedy draw on your experience that crisis often turns into opportunity, and no matter how dark the day, you have a companion to walk with you towards the light.
