Was your day a "REALLY" day?

"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." Romans 8:28
I read this on a friends Facebook page and just had to share...
Me: God, can I ask You a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise You won't get mad
God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
 Me: Well, I woke up late
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
God: Hmmmmm
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Me (humbled): OH
God: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
Me: (ashamed)
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me (embarrassed):Okay
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a short that would knock out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm Sorry God
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good and the bad.
Me: I will trust You.
God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.
God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children...
I think more often then not, we are like the person in this scenario.  We look at our day and say "really God?".  The funny thing is, He's saying "Really!".  It wasn't a surprise to Him, it didn't throw Him off guard, in fact it all played out the way it was suppose to.  We may not see the reasoning behind it, we may not even agree with it,  or even like it for that matter.  But in the end, His ways are always best.  "And we know in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
So next time your day doesn't turn out how you expected and maybe frustration and disappointment occur, ask God to help you see the positive that took place, to see the many blessings He has bestowed upon your day.  Once you do I think these next two songs might come to mind.
God will make a way, when there seems to be no way...He works in ways, you can not see, He will make a way for me.
Count your blessings name them one by one, count your many blessings see what God has done. 

We serve a BIG God, a LOVING God, a FAITHFUL God, and God who is ALWAYS at work.
