Something Good My Way Comes

Updated on September 8, 2012
Source

As a writer, I thought it would be pretty cool to write myself into my favorite story, which happens to be Lord Of The Rings. I would be the hero, save the day. I would protect Merry and Pippen so they didn't get taken by the Uruk-Hai, I would protect Gandalf so he would not fall with the Balrog, I would...But each time I considered what I would do, I was brought up short as I thought of how my actions would change the story. If Gandalf never fell, he would not have ascended to a higher level of wizardry and therefore become more powerful than Saruman. If Merry and Pippen had not been taken by the Uruk-Hai, Fanghorn would not have been moved to call a Moot and strike against Saruman and Isengard, or send some of the trees to help in Helms Deep. So while Gandalf's falling and Merry and Pippin being taken were bad things, they ended up being good things. I realized there really was nothing in the story i could change without ruining the story.

In real life it is similar. things happen to us all the time that we consider to be bad. We often tell ourselves if we could just go back in time we would change this or that so it never happened. Yet, if we stop and consider things, how many times has something we thought bad, turned out good? I am sure we have all heard the story of the person who missed their plane, only to have the plane crash. Sometimes the good is a spiritual gain only, and sometimes it is a physical gain. I remember one morning i was running late. I asked GOD to let the lights stay green, yet every single light turned red. I began to get angry and impatient when it dawned on me...you see I had asked GOD to teach me patience, and HE was doing it. HE made me aware of my anger and impatience. When I realized what I was doing, I took a deep breath and relaxed. I decided being on time was not as important as learning patience and being right with GOD.

There are many things that have happened in my life that I could say were bad. But good always come out of it. Always. Sometimes the good that comes of a bad thing that happens to us personally is not meant for us personally but for others. And sometimes we may never even realize that good. But it always comes. Believe in it. Believe that all the bad things that happens in your life will turn to good...if not for you then certainly for someone else who needs it. And this is right...after all, if good comes to your from bad that happens to others should it not work the other way around?

I will say this though...there are people in this world who are wicked and who love to hurt others. when bad comes to them I do not believe good will come to them through it...it may come to others but not to them.
