Are you having bad days? I bet you are or once were. Truth is, I also have bad days. Who doesn’t?
Sometimes we worry, sometimes the office gets toxic, sometimes parenting becomes stressful, sometimes working becomes draining, sometimes rest seems far fetched, sometimes we are faced with stumbling blocks, sometimes memories of that trauma haunts you again, sometimes something triggers the pain of losing that person, and sometimes even adulthood alone stresses the hell out of you.
And the crazy part is that, on those bad days we lash out, transfer aggression, become quiet, overthink, talk about it, call a therapist, get treated but we seldom seek Gods words.
His scriptures have been designed to be there for us on those bad days when all we can see is the evil and ugly. On those dark days his words have been written to lighten our lives. On those bad days his words are there to reassure us that everything is not over.
That there is more. That its okay to have bad days but its not the end. That bad days and challenges are part of the ball game but good days and winning is guaranted.
His words have brought comfort and peace to me and so many other people round the globe.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
So when you do go through those unexpected bad days, remember his word, lean on these scriptures, meditate on them and let the life in these words bring you solace. They’ve been my guide & source of peace on those troubling days and I believe that its going to be the same for you.
