Good is good. Bad can be good by turning bad into good. One of my readers from Spain gently and beautifully reminded me that everything belongs to God even all the bad…
Everything belongs to God. Everything belongs to the divine. Even bad experiences, they are there to teach us something. Above everything visible and invisible rules only one principle, the Creator principle, who loves all his creatures. He wants the best for them. Sometimes, challenges are hard. Sometimes it seems that we are alone, abandoned, sometimes darkness surrounds everything and there is no place for light. But light exists. And it´s stronger than dark. Light protects, relaxes, and embraces. God does not abandon his creatures. He appears at some point, giving us the chance to come back by his side. Giving us the chance to play our part in life, to remember who we are, that we are light. The light that we are is untiring, it can´t be shut down. Everything, even the most horrible, belongs to God. Everything comes from the same. I thank God for this day, for every day of my existence that I feel close to Him. Even when the challenges are hard, when more than once I want to quit. If He lightens my way, I have nothing to fear, I can face everything; I just need Him in my heart, giving me the strength that sometimes in my humanity I lack. God listens to us and talks to us, comforts us and gives us the miracles that we need to live, to live as His creations, recognizing Him as the principle of this wonderful universe. Everything belongs to God, nothing is apart from Him, and He appears when we look for Him sincerely.Sofia Zoe
Since everything belongs to God, even the bad and the horrible, and because God overcame the world (see verse below), this has to mean He has overcome all the bad and the horrible. It is His power that changes bad into good. Very amazing process! I write a bit about this process in a previous blog post if you would like to check it out.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.John 16:33
Darkness is Temporary
Even when tribulations are heavy, if you can remember memories, even sparse memories of light, focus on that light you have experienced. Even when you are in darkness, you can remember light exists because you have seen it.
Darkness is temporary if God’s light is allowed to consume the darkness.
God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.1 John 1:5
God overcame the world – Bad into Good
Since God overcame the world, he has conquered all fears and related negative emotions which generate from darkness. In other words, he can turn bad into good.
Relaxed state related to trust
I agree with Sophia Zoe that light is stronger than darkness, and it protects, relaxes, and embraces. A relaxed state is a byproduct of trust. When you trust someone, you can relax. If you trust God, you will relax and allow him to be present in your life to fight the “Goliaths” you have not been successful in overcoming so you can enjoy the miracle of turning bad into good.
Love and light to consume darkness and evil
I established “God is light” in this post. The following scripture also tells us “God is love”. Therefore, God’s light is love and God’s love is light.
God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”1 John 4:16
If you believe there will be an upcoming thousand years of peace (a millennium) you may want to consider how the world will evolve into a place of peace. I believe peace will be achieved when the adversary is bound by the power of love that generates light consuming all darkness and evil. What do you believe?
Conclusion – Bad into Good
Good is good. Thankfully, because God overcame the world, He also has the power to turn all bad into good making everything work for your good.
