In the news last week, a Swiss town, Olten, had some unusual rain… chocolate. It turns out that one of the famous chocolate factories had a problem with the vents, so chocolate powder was getting blown into the town. Because of some big winds that day, the whole town got coated in cocoa powder. The company even offered to pay for any cleaning that was needed.
What a nice problem to have right?
Is there really such a thing as a nice problem? What about your day? Are you back in school yet? Home on vacation still, but you can’t really go anywhere? You may be getting sick and tired of the world. You may have some problems.
But God is bigger than those problems. Don’t worry, He’s got your back.
Don’t worry—I am with you.
Don’t be afraid—I am your God.
I will make you strong and help you.
Isaiah 41:10 (ERV)
Dear Father in Heaven, thank you for being with me. I’m sorry that I sometimes make little problems into big problems. Teach me how to be grateful and not complain. Amen.
