“We do not go through tough times simply because life is rough. No, because these have powerful significance. We must not waste a bad day. What we do is turn that which attempts to shut us down on its head. We win it into productive submission. We use it--the hurt, the pain--to help others; just as did Jesus as he perpetually helps us. And why? Because all around us are awesome people who've just about had it with injury and obstacle. Even those who behave with intent of hurting us will only serve to strengthen us because we will learn how the others in our circles feel. It is here that we will be of useful purpose. Jesus teaches us how to make a difference....just like he did. This is called ministry. We must not waste a bad day. Jesus didn't. He used the agony of the Cross and the numbing death of the Grave to wow the world!” (terryrush.blogspot.com).
I’m guessing that most of us view bad days as a waste of time. But the Bible teaches that even bad days shouldn’t be wasted. Bad days can strengthen our faith. “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing (James 1:2-4). Bad days equip us to minister to others. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). Bad days remind us that this world is not our home. “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Romans 8:18).
Be thankful for bad days!
God loves you!
