Day 5: No Dishwasher


"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

Agatha Christie has been known to have said that she did a lot of “writing” while doing dishes. Well, I have done some plotting over the years when I loaded the dishwasher. While waiting for my new dishwasher to arrive — this week, please! — I’ve had a lot of thinking time while doing the dishes by hand.

  • God is good.
  • God is always good.
  • God has been good to me.
  • God will be good to me.
  • God has my family's best interest in mind.
  • God is sovereign.
  • God is still good, no matter what.

I think focusing on God and His lovingkindness is a win-win!


Update: On Day 8 of washing dishes by hand (January 19, 2017), the diswasher arrived. Praise the Lord!
