All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

This is a verse that I held on for as long as I remember.

During those times when it seemed like the world was falling down around me.  “All things work together…”

When I was hurting (either physically or emotionally) so bad, that it seemed like a victory just to put one foot in front of the other.  “All things work together…”

When the month lasted longer than the money  “All things work together…”

In the moments of my life when things were the darkest, my emotions were swirling and my head was spinning, it was and is only by faith that I could say through my tears

All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

And as time passed, I can look back at those same experiences and see the hand of God protecting, guiding and turning that which Satan meant for evil for His glory and my good.

Today I thankful for:

  • The transforming power of His Love
  • That one day all pain and suffering will be no more
  • That my puppy is slowly but surely healing
  • family
  • Fiber One Chewy Bars (they making dieting easier)  =)

He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber. Psalm 121:3

watch-over

Thank you. Lord, that you do not slumber.  I sometimes feel that we are slumbering our way through this thing we call life.  It is assuring and comforting that you are always there – always watching over us.

I thank you, Lord, that even those things in life that Satan has meant for evil in my life – that you have been there to “keep my foot from slipping.”  You have kept my feet on solid when all about it feels like shifting sands.  I know that I trust you to keep me safe.  I have faith that you will keep me safe.  And more than safe, I choose  to follow you into life abundant – a life where you and I can find love, joy, and peace.

What are you thankful for today?
