I stress… A LOT. I stress about everything. I stress about test. I stress about plans. I stress about the time. I even stress about what color I’m going to get my nails painted! I worry everyday what’s going to happen tomorrow. Recently I came across this verse, which is now my favorite: “…and if not, He is still good” – Daniel 3:18. Ever since I read that the first time, I find myself whispering that everyday to myself when I’m worried about what’s going to happen or when things just don’t go as planned.
You failed you’re test.
Your boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with you.
A friend hurt you.
You didn’t make the team.
You forgot your routine.
Your team lost the game.
You spilled your drink in your lap.
A family member passed away.
You’re having a very bad hair day.
There are SO many more horrible things that could happen in a day! But take heart! These things DO NOT define you. For our sweet, wonderful, magnificent, lovely, beautiful, amazing Father is STILL good!
We truly don’t understand how blessed we are. I believe all these things happen for a reason to lead us to where we need to be. The day when Jesus was crucified was a sad day, but three days later he rose again! For our God is SO good.
Write this verse somewhere so as you go through your day you can remember it. Write it on a sticky note and put it in your car, write it on your hand, put it in your phone, or if you’re like me, have a bracelet where it says the verse. So, let’s always remember when our day or plans don’t go as planned, He is STILL good!
