Romans 8:28

"And we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." -Romans 8:28

No pretty typography today. I’m running behind in the blogging department this week.

I absolutely love this verse. It is something I can read anytime I need comforting in any situation. This verse is a promise from God that everything that comes our way is going to work out for our own good, because we love and believe in God.It’s hard to remember when someone dies, when life is a mess, when everything seems to be going wrong, but it is still true that it will work out for our good. At the end of all of this (life) we find out why the good and the bad happened. The reasoning behind the hurt and pain and frustration was in our lives. For now, we have to trust God and His Word and believe that He is working everything out!

In other words, one day, when we stand before God and He explains to us everything that we didn't understand and why certain things had to happen, we will glorify Him.
