This life deals us misery. We have unseen things coming at us from every angle.
How do we deal with this?
How do we survive seeing a child deal with a drug addiction for years?
How do we deal with the death of our 22 year old brother when we are just 25?
How do we deal with the loss of grandparents and parents through death?
How do we deal with personal illness, the illness of a spouse, a child or a parent? How do we deal with watching our dad slip away with Alzheimer's?
How do we deal with depression or other mental illness of our own or a loved one?The list goes on and on....the loss of a job, no income, numerous handicaps, lack of family support, loss of friends, natural disaster, you fill in the blank.
A long time ago I discovered;
Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, and are called according to His purpose."
This was the first time that bad made sense to me.
I began to accept that God is in control.
I believe His promises to cause everything to work together for good to those who love Him.
Then, it is my job to love Him so He can cause everything to work for good in my life. He promises us that He will give us the Peace that Passes all Comprehension.
Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I am standing on His promises.
How about you?
