Everyone has tough days. You’ve probably stepped into a vortex of time where everything seems to be going wrong. Work is hell, you can’t seem to find a little bit of peace, maybe even family is falling apart, and your escape from reality just keeps you more socially estranged and keeps you from facing your problems. And you probably tell God that you’re doing the right things but everything you do seems to crash and burn. Why? You’re probably asking:
Where is God out in the darkness?
Cause the voices in my head ain’t talking honest
They’re saying maybe You made us then forgot us
But that ain’t You, that ain’t You
[The Day That I Found God >> Switchfoot]
You trust God too much to give up on Him. And you know better, you can’t deny God’s existence and your relationship with God just because of dark times. Paul from the Bible says: “God comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort others with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.”
And also don’t forget: All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His promise.
So don’t be discouraged! Just keep going about doing the right thing like you usually do. Even if it feels like you’re not getting anything in return, just remember your reward is from God who will give ‘a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over’. J Just remember to put God at the center of everything you do.
So the next time you’re wondering: ‘does it matter at all?’, just remember
“It all matters just as long as you do everything you do
to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
Tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do”

Hope this brings a smile to your face 🙂 ]
It’s like Paul says: ‘whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.’
And while you’re at it, here’s a beautiful song that will remind you to do it all for the glory of God 🙂
