For Our Good

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”  Romans 8:28 (NIV)

It brings me much hope and peace to know that my God cares enough about little ole me.  He ensures that I am okay and that the things that happen to me, especially the ones that are hard to handle, somehow end up working together for my good.

The more I think about the circumstances I have endured throughout my life space, the more I believe that God loves and cares for me, and that He has a purpose for my life. If He didn’t, I would probably no longer be standing in the land of the living to tell the story, but would rather have succumbed to the dark rings of depression, doubt and hopelessness.

Among my list of disappointments, I have had a failed long-time marriage, have lost beloved family members, have endured ostracism and prejudice by professional colleagues. I have been lied to and lied about, have been cheated from what was rightfully mine, have felt abandoned, unloved and unqualified to be loved, just to list a few.  Yet, while navigating those troubled waters in my life, I never once doubted situations that caused me grief would be turned into something good that would ultimately bring me closer to Him and bring  me supernatural peace.

In John Chapter 16, the Lord Jesus said to His disciple that they would suffer while in this world, but they should take heart because He had overcome the world.  If the waters of  life had made your boat ride rocky lately, do not fear, because the Lord will be right there with you, helping you steep it to safety.  He cares about you and you will be okay if you trust Him.

“Father God, thank You for always making certain that all things, good or bad, work together for our good.”

For His Glory
