Msg: Better Days Ahead - Week 4

   I grew in a small town with one stoplight. The joke for visitors was, "Don't blink, you might miss it." Sometimes our lives can change in a blink - good or bad. Are you ready for a change? As we've been studying the life of Joseph, we've seen his life go through ups and (quick) downs: from favored son to slave; from ruler of a household, to prisoner; from commander of the prison and a chance for freedom, to forgotten. In today's story, life turns completely around for Joseph. The consistent quality we see in Joseph whether the situation was good or bad, was his desire to live for and honor God.
   There's a lesson in all of this for us today. Don't let your situation determine the quality of your relationship with God. We can never see the full picture when we are standing in the middle of it. Continue to trust in God that He can see all of what we are going through and where He is taking us. And remember to look forward to better days ahead.
