Good in Every Experience

I believe that no matter how things appear, there is good in that thing, good in every experience.

When I noticed the movie Armageddon was about to be shown on TV, which I'd never seen before, I was curious and wanted to watch it. It's about a drilling team who are sent out of space to prevent a rock from hitting and destroying the earth.

Although the film had some funny moments, I found it dull, but I had a feeling there was something I was meant to see. So I figured I would stick with the movie to the bitter end.

I noticed in one scene they were playing the song "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith, which I was actually humming last week.

At the end of the film Harry, the leader of the drilling team, decides to sacrifice his life by staying to manually detonate the bomb and destroy the rock that is heading for earth. As Harry is having problems, some of the drilling team doubt Harry, but AJ, who is engaged to Harry's daughter, says:

"Harry'll do it. I know it. He doesn't know how to fail."

Aha, that's why I had to watch this movie just for that priceless line: "He doesn't know how to fail!"

There's good in every experience, whether that experience lasts for a few seconds or drags on for nearly 3 hours. All I need to do is observe and the good will be revealed.

Thank you, God, for that priceless gem! You don't know how to fail!
