Do all things work together for good for those who cling to God or is it optimism?

If all things work together for good, then why this and why that? It is an age-old question which no one has any answer that can fully satisfy every single soul. Circumstances will always change. When good things happen to us, we often don’t say “Why me?” And when bad things happen to us, we often ask “Why me?” This is human nature. This is life.

For example, sleep is a good thing. When I get enough sleep, I will do well during the day. When I don’t get enough sleep, I feel tired easily during the day. It makes me realise how important sleep is. It makes me appreciate the times when I get enough sleep.

Sometimes I forget to be thankful when good things happen to me. Then when problems arise and challenges happen, I long for things to be peaceful and orderly again.

It can be a never ending cycle – after all, circumstances are not always good all the time, neither are they bad all the time. So our moods tend to go up and down based on how circumstances turn out in our life. When good things happen, it is easy to say “God is good”. When bad things happen, it is just as easy to say “God is not good”.

So the question is: How do we liberate ourselves from this up-and-down cycle? This is the question that only we ourselves can answer because no one can fully answer for ourselves. To answer the question entirely for you is indirectly to rob you of the opportunity to go through the process of working it out on your own because only you know best what is best for you because we are our own gods/divinity. We can only offer a listening ear and share some food for thought. What may work for us may not fully work for you, and vice versa. Follow your heart. You are a Light and a Blessing to everyone, whether you know it or not.
