He is better. Day 5.

If you are just joining us, read this post first. Each post this week will build on one another.

Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.

In my post on Thursday I talked about how I came to a place where I realized Jesus is better than knowing the answer to my ‘why‘. Each day this week I encourage you to think through one of the ‘how’s‘ I shared. Yesterday I challenged you to make a better than list. Today I want us to focus on this profound truth.

God will make good out of bad, we just have to look for it.

Over the last several years, I have found a lot of comfort in the simple truth that God makes good out of bad. Although I would love to avoid the pain altogether, it helps me to know that there is good on the other side of the struggle.

Romans 8:28 tells us….
“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.” (NLT)

My encouragement to you today is to take some time to think about the good that has come from your hardships. Don’t forget the small things. You may want to take a fresh look at something bad that happened to you in the past that you are still struggling with. Or it may relate to our current situation, Covid-19. Regardless of the situation, take some time to look for the good in the midst of the bad. Don’t be surprised if after taking a closer look you find yourself one step closer to surrendering your ‘why‘.

More tomorrow,

Lisa
