May 26: A Bad Day


Scripture Lesson: Lamentations 3:13-26


Have you ever had a bad day? On this date in 1993 Carlos Martinez hit a fly ball to Jose Canseco that caromed off the Rangers’ outfielder’s head and over the fence for a home run. The fourth inning solo home run was the difference in the game as the Indians defeated the Rangers 7-6.


The writer of Lamentations was really having a bad day in our Scripture lesson today. He described it by saying that his heart had been pierced, he had become a laughingstock, he had been mocked, and he had endured injustice by the court, leaving his soul downcast. I would say that would classify as a bad day! In verse 21, though, the author found hope. He recalled God’s love and faithfulness, and the promise that those who put their hope in Him would be blessed. He decided to just wait for the Lord, believing that God would be there for Him. That is indeed a great assurance for us that when we have a bad day: God will be there for us!

  1. What happened on your last bad day?

  2. Why can we always rely upon God in our bad days?

  3. What does God’s faithfulness and love mean to you?

Bad days are going to come: just ask Canseco. The key to getting through tough times is relying upon God and His faithfulness and love for us!
