Disappointments are God’s way of saying, “I’ve got something better - Daily Bible Reflections September 5,2013


SUPERIOR WAYS

 
We do not cease praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will. – Colossians 1:9
 
They were scheduled to move back to the Philippines after having acquired their citizenship abroad. But a few months before their return, their young boy was  diagnosed with cancer. It was heartbreaking news for the family.
       Everyone rallied in prayer for his healing. The blessing behind all the sad news was that their new country of citizenship provided free healthcare that would afford them the best treatment that science could offer.
       Oftentimes when tragedy hits, we can’t help but question why God allows bad things to happen to us. It’s so easy to focus on the negative, to doubt His presence in our lives, to forget that there is always a bigger picture.
         But adversity also brings out the best in us, if we let it.
       When we choose to find the silver lining behind the cloud, we allow God to reveal to us the supremacy of His wisdom. We gain new insight as well as a deeper knowledge of His character. Our faith is strengthened. We emerge from the experience with lessons we will benefit from for the rest of our lives.
       In the end, we are wiser, stronger, more placid in the face of affliction. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng (justbreatherissa@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Disappointments are God’s way of saying, “I’ve got something better.” (Unknown)
 
Jesus, when pain, loss or anxiety blinds me from seeing Your blessing hand, let me see with eyes of faith.
 
Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us.
