Being thankful for the worst moments
This is a picture of that same mom and baby girl meeting again for the first time. It was taken in the Medford Airport 2 years ago. Shortly after this photo was taken, that baby girl went home with me to meet my family. It was one of the happiest days of my life.
Here's my point. On the day the first picture was taken, God could see the second picture. On one of my saddest days, He was holding one of my happiest days. He knows how the story ends. And it's not over.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have pictures snapped of their saddest and happiest days. But we all have images in our minds of our worst moments. Today I ask you to consider the possibility that there is a moment, somewhere down the timeline of your life, that will redeem your saddest of days. And you will step back and look at it and be thankful for your worst moment because without it, your happiest moment wouldn't exist. And won't that be something?
