Do you have a bad day? Maybe you already had a bad day because you were sad, failure, or upset? Do you think that you should blame God for our bad day?
I do not believe that we should blame God for our bad day. Let me tell you something about what happened yesterday.
This morning day, my husband was supposed to leave for his training workshop at his workplace. Instead of that, he found his Golden Retriever dog, Max, did not look so good. He remembered that he was fine last Wednesday night and that he jumped excitedly. However, my husband came to our bedroom, waking me up. He told me that Max was really ill. I was puzzled, coming to look at Max outside from our backyard. I saw that Max’s legs were shaking, I suspected that he did not look very well. My husband told me that he wanted to take Max to the Vet.
I told him to call his supervisor for an emergency, he could not come to the training at that time. We went to the vet nearby our house. The doctor and nurse brought Max over to the room since he was extremely weak. We could not understand how Max got a high fever too quickly. I told my husband that I suspected it was the black widow spider.
Everything the doctor and nurse worked on Max and they put a lot of ice over him. His fever was crazily high. The doctor attempted to find out what was wrong with him. She assumed that it happened in the high heat wave during Summer. It was very emotional for both of us.
The doctor told us to pay an expensive cost, but we could not afford to pay it. Leaving Max at the vet, we went home and sought some help from our family and friends; however, they could not help at all. We were disappointed and hurt. My husband got a loan from the bank, but the loan was too small. Yikes.
Two hours later, my husband got a call from the vet and the doctor told him that Max passed away. We were surprised how quickly Max died. Last Wednesday night, Max was good and perfectly fine. Next day, he died suddenly. The doctor could not explain how Max died.
My husband hung up and he cried suddenly. We both could not understand why God let that happened.[bctt tweet=”Should We Blame God For Our Bad Day? #ChristianPost ” username=”unshakablejoy”]
Should We Blame God For Our Bad Day?
How about having bad day? Yes, God knows that we all have bad days. What does God want us to do when we have a bad day? Should we turn away from God? No! Should we mad at God for giving us our bad day? No! When we have a bad day, God wants us to turn to Him. He wants us to praise Him and ask Him to give us joy, strength, happiness, and encouragement.
It seems that the writer of Psalm 102 was having a bad day! He spoke about things that were happening in his life – not eating, not sleeping, being lonely, being made fun of, being fat, being “failed” parent, and other things. The writer explained that he was “withering away like grass” (Psalm 102:11b). But in Psalm 102:12 – the writer stopped speaking about the bad things instead of starting to praise God.
That is what we should do when we are having a bad day. We should continue to praise God! God loves us, and He will help us through our bad days. Whether you are having a good days or bad day today, be sure to praise God.
But you, O Lord, will sit on your throne forever.
Your fame will endure to every generation. – Psalm 102:12
Prayer Encouragement: My Lord, thank You for staying with me through good days and bad days, in Jesus name. Amen.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Our pets are precious members of our family, Something similar happened to my beloved Boston Terrier, Bandit, two years ago. I still miss him.
God allows the difficult, but I agree that we shouldn’t blame Him.

Thank you for coming here. I really appreciated your visit here. God bless you 🙂
Joyce, thank you so much for the feature this week! What an honor! Sorry for the delay in responding, yesterday was crazy busy. But I am back today commenting after linking-up yesterday.
I am so so sorry to hear about Max. I know I love my dogs and when they have passed away either suddenly or after a bit of time, my heart hurts and aches and a hole is left. I am praying for both you and your husband. I agree, we shouldn’t blame God for bad days, instead, we need to learn to run to Him for comfort and understanding. Blessings, I pray your heart is doing better today after your loss.

Pets are special & it is very sad to lose them. I remember when I lost my working dog Polly suddenly, I was devastated.
You’re welcome to drop by for a cup of inspiration,
I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. 🙁 We’ve certainly all had our bad days. Thanks fun for a God who never leaves our side! We CAN praise Him in the storm.
