Everything was well all along

Last summer, while I was playing golf with several friends, a golf ball hit me in the back of the neck with great force. I fell to my knees but instantly declared, "All is well, all is well."

The woman who'd hit me with the wayward ball ran toward me and said, "All is not well. I just hit you with the golf ball!" But what I had said was a declaration of a fact about God.

I was able to walk to a nearby shelter and collect my thoughts. My friends showed me a lot of love and concern, but I really knew that all was well. God doesn't create mishaps and accidents, and since He was the only creator, I couldn't experience something that He didn't create.
