The dawning of each day can bring with it either storms or sunshine. Sometimes we get a little of both. But whatever comes our way, we believe that in it God will keep a loving hold of our hand.
A friend emailed me recently and said that he was having trouble getting work to support his family. However, he finally was able to get a job working as a correctional officer at prison for the mentally ill.
On June 1, 2018 he opened an inmate’s door to routinely give him something, when he jumped up and for no reason began to beat my friend in the face and head.
When two fellow officers heard the commotion, they rushed to his assistance, not knowing that he was lying on the floor, and the heavy metal door they opened hit him on the top of his head, fracturing his C-6 vertebrate in his neck in two places. He ended up with a fractured orbital bone, two c-6 fractures and a concussion/traumatic brain injury and was out of work in a full neck brace for months.
As much as we long for the coming Kingdom, we have to resign ourselves to the pains of this fallen creation. The world attributes these continual trials to “Murphy’s law,” meaning, “What can go wrong, will go wrong.”
Murphy’s law nails it. Things do go wrong. Daily. That last screw that slipped from your hand will always find its way to the plug hole.
Jesus even said that these troubles come daily. He said, “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34, Amplified Bible).
