One thing I really love about being a Christian is knowing that everything has a purpose. God isn’t gonna put us through a bunch of crappy stuff just for the heck of it. He’s a kind God; He wants our lives to turn out well in the end. He doesn’t want to torture us, or make us suffer, or depress us. He wants us to be happy.
Everything He does for and to us is intended to be good for us. But we can be pretty stupid. Maybe not stupid, per say — not in every occasion — but we just don’t get it a lot of the time. God goes through a lot of trouble to make us understand what He’s trying to say. He became human and died so we’d understand. But after all the trouble He’s gone to, we still don’t. We still can’t see.
So sometimes, we think something is bad just because we took it the wrong way.
Because everything has a point to it, I know that when I’m going through something really hard, I should just try to understand what God is saying, and get through the rough times. I know that if I do that, it’s gonna turn out all right in the end, and maybe even a little better than that. I’ve learned something from the tough times.
As long as I stick with God, everything’s gonna be alright. As long as I do what God wants me to, everything is good.
Thing is, most of the time I don’t do what God wants me to do. And I think that’s when really bad stuff starts to happen. We twist everything out of proportion, Satan eggs us on, and then we find ourselves in a really bad scenario that clearly is not from God.
And personally, I don’t think that kind of thing can be avoided. I can try not to sin, and I can not sin for a little while, but I am going to sin eventually, even if I’m on a really amazing spiritual high.
So, in that case, spiritual highs aren’t gonna last forever, but neither are spiritual lows.
God does all things for the good of those who love Him and keep His commandments.
I don’t want to live thinking everything is a coincidence.
So I’ll stick with God.
