Yesterday was 23 years since I suffered a severe footballl injury that had me in the hospital for a month and in a full body cast for a few months after that.
It’s one of the best things that ever happened to me!
Because of it, it set in place a chain of events that led to me meeting, Lisa, becoming a Christian, and everything of course that has happened in my life since then.
I guess that’s what the Apostle Paul meant by saying, “In all things give thanks.”
So what are you dealing with today that looks like a negative? Don’t despair…some day you may look back and see it as a blessing.
“Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance and perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
