Weekend Wisdom: All Things

Life was rough for family members yesterday.

While I celebrated 22 years since joining the Kearns’ family, Joe’s niece and her family were saying “See you later.” to a beloved dog.

Then my cousin in Texas messaged me with a prayer request for his mother-in-law.

I sat down at my desk and my Bible was opened to Romans 8 and I had highlighted verse 28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Look at those words – All things.  Absolutely, positively all things including death, and serious diagnoses God sees to it that something good will come from it.

What? Only God knows.

When? Only God knows.

Where? Only God knows.

It is not up to us to know those things, but to have faith that in due time God will bring good out of any nasty life event.
