The Floor!

Recently on a Preteen trip many of us camped out on the floor of hotel rooms so others could have the beds. It was not comfortable at all. Add forgetting your pillow and it’s even worse. However at some point in the night I pulled an extra folded up blanket under my head and it was like heaven on earth. All of a sudden the floor was not so bad. Honestly I didn’t feel any less rested than usual. However, this could have been Jesus and the large amount of caffeine I consumed.
Before finding a comfortable position on the floor I tossed and turned thinking about my nice big comfy bed at home. I was laying in the floor wishing I was in my own bed even though I didn’t want to leave the kids or the SuperStart event. Still I imagined my bed filled with lots of blankets, pillows and comfort. I’ve never really been thankful for my bed. Never thought about how nice it is to have a clean and safe place to lay my head at night. Not until I found myself laying on a cold, hard and uncomfortable hotel room floor.
How often do we have to find ourselves on the floor before we recognize the goodness of God?

This was not the case for Job at all. Job was blessed with so much and even after he lost it all he still remained true to God. When faced with so much trial and opposition as well as sickness Job continued to believe that God is good regardless of the circumstances of life.
(Story found in the book of Job)

“Look, God is greater than we can understand.
His years cannot be counted.” Job 36:26

The night I spent sleeping on a cold hard floor in a hotel room did not make God any less good. Just the same, the difficult life circumstances that you might be facing doesn’t change Gods goodness either. God is simply good even while on the floor!

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.

One thought on “The Floor!”

  1. Helena, this very true! Sometimes we have to loose everything to find what we had wasn’t so bad after all.
