What happened today was one of the happiest days in my life. The kind of joy is deep and very meaningful. My fervent prayer was answered. If I’m an atheist or agnostic, what happened today would have no profound meaning at all. It would be like saying life goes on or business as usual.
But since from childhood, I was raised by my mom to believe in God and His mysterious wonders, so every time there’s a good news, I would attribute it to God. The feeling then is something amazingly wonderful which makes me realize that life is worth living. As Lance said to me this afternoon outside the doctor’s clinic, “God is good.” Indeed, God is good. As the song of Don Moen says, “God is good all the time.”
There were times I question why bad things happen but as I look back, I realize it wasn’t bad at all. It was still good because the experience gave us a life changing lesson. If it didn’t happen, we might still go on with our usual ways of living until the consequence could be worse.
So thank God all the time as much as possible because in every event of our lives, things happen for a reason. And the reason is always to make us a better person… To make us wiser, more aware of what it takes to be physically well and most of all, to make us grateful, understanding, kind and compassionate.
