In my attempts to lift myself out of the “rut” I wrote about yesterday, my mind continues to circle back to this verse:
“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)
Reflecting on my own past, I can look at moments of pain, heartache, and loneliness with the perspective time has granted. Now, I can see the good that has come from the “bad”. During those times I remember feeling angry with God and forsaken by Him. Today, I am strengthened by His promise in Romans 8:28. I am confident that in the event I can not hear him but think I do, or I’ve taken a detour and found myself stuck in a rut He will use it for my own good.
