"Diagnosis #6: Life is Busy"Stuart JonesAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, a children’s book by Judith Viorst, is about a boy named Alexander who is not having a good day. Bad things happen to him all day long! Things such as bubble gum in his hair, having to sit in the middle of the back seat, getting no dessert at lunch, being made to wear railroad pajamas and probably worst of all, kissing on T.V.! He’s mad, he’s upset and he’s miserable.   Life is hard, bad things happen and like Alexander, we become exhausted and worn down from the daily grind. God tells us we will be challenged by life, a fact with which most of us are all too familiar. God allows bad things to happen, even though we might not understand His reasons.   If we are focused on God, He will make us strong and see us through. God is IT. He is all we need. He is the beginning and the end. God is everything. “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)   Above all, God is good, just, loving and merciful. When bad things happen to us that we don’t understand, instead of doubting God’s goodness, we must trust Him. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
