Have you ever noticed that when something bad happens, like when someone is ill, or has recently passed away, we immediately speak about it being God’s Will. We seem to associate all the bad things that happen to us, as being because God wanted them to be that way. Really?!? Do we think that God goes over His charts and thinks to Himself, what kind of evil will I bring down on him or her, today?

Why is it we never speak of God’s Will when things are going smoothly? When was the last time we said something like, “It’s God’s Will that He wants me to be happy”? He wants my children to be healthy? God is watching over our family and protecting us? I believe we are entrenched in time, waiting for the next shoe to drop. We measure time from event to event. And so, not knowing when the event will happen, and never thinking about the good events, we seem to expect that the next thing that does happen…will be bad.

We don’t pay attention to all of the good that happens in our lives, so we never treat the “good days” as anything special. But they are! Each day we wake up holds the promise of hope. Anything might happen. And all of it is seen by God, and He allows the events to unfold, to happen. He doesn’t dangle the good days over our heads like a carrot, just to coax us along. He loves us. He truly loves us.

We continually put God in the box of time. We find it impossible to think of a Being, or an Intellect that transcends time. If we are in it, then He must be in here, too. God, our loving Father and Creator, knows each of us by a unique name. When He calls that name, we will recognize it; and as fast as we can, we will fly back to Him for all eternity. The whole reason why we are here on earth is to live our lives in such a fashion that we will be doing God’s Will, not fearing it.

He does exist. He did create all of us. He loves us more than we can possibly imagine. He wants only what is best for us. As the days unwind, as they play out before us, each of us has the opportunity to mesh with God’s Will. This infinite God, with an infinite plan for each of us lovingly waits for us to embrace the events of the day, to accept His plan, to embrace our God.
