Around our house we have all
kinds of times. There are good times, bad times, so-so times and then we have “oh
well” times. Oh well times will help
preserve your sanity.
Good and bad times are
relative to your expectations.What is
good times for one family might be just “the run of the mill” for others. The
same applies for the bad times.It is hard to enjoy the fact that your bad
times can’t get any worse when they are as bad as they can get.
At our house things are
pretty good, so good that we mostly have to look for something bad.Although when I do, I’m pretty efficient and
can come up with something, when I should just enjoy what I do have.
1 Timothy 6:8-9 As long as
we have food and clothes, we should be satisfied. But those who desire to be
rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful
desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
That is about the last thing
some Christians want to hear, for they want more, but it is pretty good advice
Now lest we become indolent
we must keep in mind:Proverbs 6:6 Take

kids not to do that and now they have destroyed the garage door, no matter
where I hide the keys they find them and start the car, “Oh well.”
I forgot to pay the credit
card bill and now they want 22% interest on everything I owe, “Oh well.”
The husband has just spent
$35,000 and bought a new truck he didn’t need, and we don’t have enough money
to pay for it, “Oh H….”
The list is quite long and a
lot of this is of our own making. I find it hard to pray and ask GOD to get me
out of these kinds of problems for I’m afraid I’ll just do it again.
What I need is some wisdom,James 1:5 If any of
you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without
finding fault, and it will be given to him.Daniel 12:3 tells me the result of it; Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and
those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
That wasn’t an ”Oh well”
statement it was an AMEN statement.
