God Knows Best

Laurie, the host of this month’s Thankful Thursday asked this question on here post:

Have you ever dropped a coin in the coin slot of a vending machine and not received what you wanted?

How disappointing it is to mash that button that says “Snicker bar” and receive a “Granola bar” instead. When this happens … you know for certain that something has gone wrong. How in the world could this crazy machine plunk out something that you did not want?

So what do you do when this happens. Kick the machine? Throw the granola bar in the trash? Get angry? Try again?

It is indeed a very disappointing experience when we want something and yet we end up not having it. We prayed so hard to God for something that we ever desire, but it seems that God didn’t answered our prayers. Most of our reaction to this kind of situation is to react on God or get angry with God. Do we really have the right to be angry with God?

Today, I attended the burial of my grandmother’s sister. It’s a very sad event in our lives when one of our relatives passed away. If we were the one to choose, we want God to heal her and be with us, spending time together. But God knows what’s best for her and for her family. Despite this loss, I am still thankful to God for a lot of things He has done today.

I thank God for this event in our lives because it gave us the opportunity to meet and bond with our relatives. We seldom see each other and during these times it feels like having a reunion. Thank God for the lives of our relatives.

Truly God knows what’s best for us and He always works for the good of us.
