When Everything Goes Wrong
Do you ever have days when it seems like everything is going wrong?
Recently I made plans with friends to go to a women’s conference, and I couldn’t wait to get there! Unfortunately, halfway to the event I realized I’d forgotten my tickets at home. So I took a deep breath of disappointment, pulled over and texted my friends to say I was heading back to my house. But, they texted me back within minutes and said they’d found a way to get me in.
Finally, I got there, but there was no parking!!!! A marathon was blocking the road and there was no way for me to get near the building. I was so very frustrated.
But I knew in that moment, I had a choice. I could either resent my circumstances or ask God to help me make the best of them. I decided to go to a nearby coffee shop and read a book. It wasn’t what I hoped for but at least this way, I could have lunch with my friends.
