It could be worse.
It doesn't always help to be told to count your blessings, if you're feeling dismal because you see everything in such a negative way that nothing looks good. That's the trouble: it's the way you feel, no matter what objective reality is. But a sermon I heard recently was a valuable and timely message for me. The pastor, who has a son with serious health problems, related how he had a flash of realization one day in the past. He was well and truly down over his son's suffering, and the pain it was causing the family; and the message was sent to him in the Spirit, that God is still worthy to be praised. There are things we can never understand in this life because our perceptions and our intelligence are too limited, from the perspective of the God of this universe. We can't see things He can and make sense of them and the reason why He is letting them happen. The text for that message was Job, not surprisingly. It was something I'd read before but it did not hurt to hear it again. We will have some wretched times in this life but we should never let go of that realization, God has not forgotten us and is still acting for our benefit. He is still the True and Only God.
Now I've said this, I just hope I don't undergo and time of trouble. But whatever happens, well, the truth is the truth. May we always be upheld by that knowledge.
