Most of us have the idea that life is all good and then life gets bad, then it gets good again. Generally it’s not that way. Life is not forty miles of good road, then ten miles of bad road, then sixty miles of good road. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28. In all actuality, life is more like a railroad track-one rail good and one rail bad. The good and the bad run parallel. Many of us don’t understand that and we get frustrated in the present moment as we wait for the time when no more bad things will happen. We say things like: “I’ll be so glad when all of this is over so I can do what I want to do.” The truth is, God in His wisdom mixes all of these things together for His glory. We should live by His promises. Have a wonderful day!
