What I’m looking for is a blessing that’s not in disguise. (Jerome K. Jerome, 19th-20th century English writer)
Sometimes we hear people talk about “a blessing in disguise,” something that seems bad or unlucky at first, but results in something good happening later. Maybe you’ve lost a job but then you got a better one. That might really be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps Jerome had had too many of those “blessings,” so he is eager for some obvious blessed experience. How about you?
You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. (Genesis 50:20)
