All things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
This was my daddy’s life verse. Every time we talked, any time I was down, he’d always quote this and tell me to keep my pretty chin up. Even when times were bleak, they would eventually be turned into testimonies and used for God’s glory.
But sometimes Usually, Almost always, When you are going through something difficult, it’s hard to see what good can come of it. It’s hard to see the promise land. It’s hard to imagine how it’s going to work out.
God has giving me instructions. He has given me talents. He has given me inspiration. He has given me testimonies. He has given me revelations. He has given me promises.
When, God, when will these promises come to fruition in my life?
Then God reminds me of these other verses:
- Ecclesiastes 3:11 – He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
- Isaiah 40:31 – but those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Psalm 27:14 – Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he will strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
- Romans 8:25 – But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
I love the Lord. I am called by Him for His purpose. My hope is in Him. Without Him I can do nothing.
So I’ll wait. I will keep mommying. I will keep writing this blog. I will keep pursuing my “Think Big” series. I will write “Testimonies.” I will minister to “Moms of Many.”
I firmly believe that all these things will work together for good. Not just for my good, but for the glory of God.
