“We refuse to believe that evil has any reality of its own; its only claim to existence is the one our belief gives to it.” — Ernest Holmes

Why do bad things happen to good people?  This ancient question is one of life’s mysteries.  We can never really know the answer to “why”.  You may not know why something is happening the way it is happening in your life, but one thing you can know for sure…Good will come of it.  How do you know good will come of it?  You know it, because you demand it.

Look back over your life and see how many times something happened that you thought was bad at the time, that actually is part of what brings you to being who and where you are today?  Notice when something “bad” turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  Now, make this claim on the Universe.  Demand to make Good out of what is going on right now, even if you don’t know or can’t imagine what that good might be.  YOU don’t have to know. The Law of Life itself must make it so.

Reflection:  List “bad” things that have happened in your life that turned out to alright in some way or even became a gift in your life.

Affirmation:  I claim that good must come of this situation. I demand it of the Universe and I trust that it is so, even if I can’t see it right now.
