Romans 8: 28 That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
Melissa stared in awe as Mummy filled the blender with all sorts of interesting things. She picked up the leftover banana from yesterday, but now it looked different. Melissa asked Mummy and was told it was frozen and chopped up. Melissa’s big brother Todd was lactose intolerant and drank only soy milk; Mummy pour some of that it too. Then something Melissa had never seen before that Mummy said was called wheat germ. When Melissa asked why they were gonna eat germs, Mummy laughed and said it wasn’t that kind of germ. Melissa shrugged and helped put in strawberry jam and a little peanut butter. Mummy switched the machine on and after a while, poured some of the mixture out into Melissa’s cup. It was good! It was really good! Even with the germs that went in; this smoothie was yum!
Bad things happen. Good things happen. Stuff happens to people all the time whether they are good or bad. A lot of people think that when you’re a Christian only good things should happen to you. That isn’t true. Some bad things will still happen because some people will still make the wrong choice. Sometimes it’s you making the wrong choice.
What makes being a Christian so special though is that God promises; “no matter what happens I can work it out so it becomes something good for you, because you and I are friends.” You have to trust God on this and wait for Him to finish doing His thing. Sometimes it takes a while like when Joseph was in prison. You have to be patient and live a life that shows you trust God and believe He knows what He is doing; because He does. When He is done; it usually something incredible! You become an incredible story. All it took was a little good, a little bad and a whole lot of trust in the Lord. That’s a pretty good blend.
Think About This
Don’t see how your current situation can be any good? Turn it over to God and trust Him; see what happens next.
I might not know the end game, but I do know You. When things get bad please remind me of that so I don’t lose hope but rather trust You to turn things around for my good. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
