You ever had a bad day? You know, that one day that makes you think and say that you hate life. The one day that makes you wonder if life is even worth living.

Of course you have. You’ve probably had so many that you lost count.

Have you ever thanked God for those days?

Let me answer for you: you haven’t or you have but sarcastically. You might even blame God for those days and ask Him why those days even happened to you.

Well for the most part, those bad days aren’t really bad. Most of the time, you consider them bad cause things didn’t go your way. Those days are just days. It’s how we look at them that makes them bad; we make them bad. We focus on the bad things on that day and forget to see the good. A lot of good happens to us within our day that we fail to see, sometimes they’re just little things.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18

Thank God for the bad days because there’s still good in them. We receive blessings each and every day; sometimes, we just have open our eyes to see them. When we open our hearts and minds, we see all the blessing that we fail to see because we aren’t paying attention.

Thank God for L’s in our everyday life. They aren’t losses but lessons learned. Thank God for the days we didn’t get what we wanted. God gave us what we needed. Sometimes what we needed was a lesson to be learned.

If you ever think you’re having a bad day, just thank God for it. God has a plan for you and asks for your trust and patience. You’ll reach your destination and when you finally do, you’ll look back at all those bad days and smile. You’ll thank God for the bad days because they all lead you to where you’re supposed to be.

Until then, remember that there’s always a silver lining, even on what seems to be the darkest of days. TC mark
