347/365 - Blessed suffering
Thank God for the rainy days. Too often we, including me, only pray when we need something, when someone is ill, when money is tight. And it is all too easy to pray and thank God for winning the football game, for acing the test, for your mom getting over her cold. God appreciates every word of praise we speak, but that praise should not just exist on the sunny days. God is still worthy on the days we can't pick ourselves up. He is still worthy when we are sick and frustrated. We may lack understanding on why God allows bad things to happen, but that makes Him no less our God.
