Why Do Bad Days Happen To “Good People?”
Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.
Bad things happen in life, such as divorce, death, bad health, addictions, financial problems, war, suicide, hatred, stealing, lying, and adultery, to name a few. I have realized that I do not have BAD DAYS but some BAD MOMENTS. I encourage you to remember not to call a whole day terrible just because one thing happened wrong! Matthew 5:45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Looking back, I have had many horrible moments, yet God has seen me through them all. He can do the same thing for you if you follow Him and abandon your ways of thinking and doing things that did not work anyway. ~ Bill Greguska
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Bad Days Happen, But So Do Good Days Happen! Where Is Your Focus?
What Is The Difference Between A Good vs. Bad Day?
How much money you have when you die, how many people know your name or position doesn’t matter. If you never got around to doing and being what your destiny is, then all you were was a successful failure. SUCCESS me being able’s prescribed destination for you while having the capacity to experience, enjoy, and extend His goodness in your life. ~ Paraphrasing of Pastor Tony Evans
2 Timothy 3:1-5
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

Bad Days Don’t Have To Last All Day!
Try Not To Call It A Bad Day!
Did you ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and the whole day seems to go wrong? We have it in our power, with God’s help to avoid having bad days by remembering that it is just moments of the day that could be considered harmful. Having that mindset will save you a lot of grief.
Of course, we’ve all had bad days. Unfortunately, it seems that a day that starts badly often gets worse, and it is like a snowball effect that somehow turns into a terrible day. We’ve all been there. It does not have to be that way.
You can trust that God has a plan for all our situations, and we need to follow Him as He guides and directs us through! Don’t trudge through bad times on your own. Pray and ask a friend to give you support.

Count your blessings, not your problems. Bad days happen to all of us, but those who can understand those bad days come and go, so do not put so much focus and attention on those bad days. When I have a terrible day, when I look back at it, the whole day was not necessarily bad, but then why do we call it a bad day?
Next time you have a so-called bad day, take a moment to analyze it, and you will see that, yes, a part of the day was terrible, but not the whole day. This thinking will help you keep things in perspective. The bad days are bound to happen, but focus on God; He and He will help you get through them and help you appreciate the good days more. ~ Bill Greguska
