Capsule for the Day
Faith is a great virtue. It is tested in the dark. We can say we have faith in God when at the end of the day, despite our failures and mess, we say thank You Lord. It was a great day. I know You were with me even in the dark. They say, "a thankful heart is always a trusting heart". Faith! Trust!
Tommy had the worst day of his life. He received the news of the death of his mum while commuting to work. Later that day, he made a silly mistake that cost him his job. He was in a big mess. How on earth is he going to cope? His friends wondered. But he went to bed with a big smile.
"At least I am alive", he said casually and he knelt to thank God for the day. "Lord, I know I should have been more careful in what I did. I have done it. I can't undo it. But I know even now, it isn't too late for You to do what You do best. Take care of mum and look after Yourself Lord". Amen. He slept.
