Thought of the Day !!

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)

Notice that Paul doesn't say that in some things...or in good things...or in righteous acts...or when we're good...or when things are going well...or when we go to church...God works for the good of those who love him.  Instead this Scripture tells us that in "ALL" things God works for the good of those who love him.  God is always working for our good even when we seem to be messing things up.  I've witnessed people come back to the Church because they experienced God's Holy Spirit in such a loving way through others in a time of trial.  I've witnessed people who went through divorce (something truly bad) only to be helped by the God that they loved to find a new and even better life. 

My point is that God doesn't create the disasters in our lives.  Either we do...or they just happen.  But God is there always.  For those who love Him, God will weave His love and goodness into their lives in some form or fashion.  Often times we're blinded by the disaster though and do not see the good that can come out of it.  Hopefully though, later on we can look back and see where God was at work. 

In the love of Christ,
