"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."(Romans 8:28)Pretty amazing words...words that make me stop and think. Words...that make me question God. Does everything, really everything work together for the good of those who love God? What situation comes to your mind when you read those words?
These words do give us hope. We can't see the big picture God sees, but we can trust Him. We can find reassurance in knowing God has a plan, a good plan, for us who love Him.
So when our friend is hurting...God will work.
When we are overwhelmed...God will work.
When our child is sick...God will work.
When our path is unclear...God will work.
When we fail...God will work.
