We can trust our God to use bad circumstances for our good...
I’ll never forget the time one of my “big sisters” in the Lord woke up to find several inches of water covering her floors because of a broken pipe. Her family had planned to start their vacation that day. Instead, they cleaned up water for several days.
“I’m so thankful this happened before we left instead of while we were gone,” she said, describing the situation.
Funny….that’s not what I was thinking…I was thinking, “What a terrible way to spend the first few days of your vacation.”
The Hungarians have a proverb: "In every difficulty there is something good." My friend had the ability to see that good.
As Christians, even when we can’t see the good, we have a promise that it’s there:
“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
May we live like we believe this promise!
