When things are going bad, there is going to be some good that comes from it. You didn’t get that promotion, good, more time to get better> Awee, you didn’t get the job you wanted, good, you can get more experience and have a better resume. Got beat? Good, you learned. You experienced unexpected problems, good, now you have the opportunity to figure out a solution.

You are struggling financially, good, now you will have an opportunity to become more astute in financial management. You went to the doctors because of health problems, good. Now you will have an opportunity to take better care of yourself physically. You are having emotional problems, good. Now you will have a chance to walk in perfect peace as your mind stays on God rather than staying on the problem. Don’t get startled, bummed out, or frustrated when things don’t work out the way you think they should. Just look at the issue and say good, you move forward. If you can say the word, “good,” you are still alive, you have some fight left in you. “and we know that God causes everything to work together for the GOOD of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
