“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
My husband, Mike, and I have been invited to Nepal to talk about marriage in a few church buildings there. Emails flew backwards and forwards, discussing dates, areas, logistics, and objectives for the journey. Flights have been booked, suitcases packed, and speaker notes assembled.
I additionally made it a degree of conserving myself wholesome within the weeks main as much as our departure. I used to be excited, anticipating that each element had been coated, understanding that I had finished all the things I may to organize for this journey of a lifetime!
What I didn’t know was that earlier than I received on the aircraft, I had contracted a virus of some type, and throughout the flight, my knees and ankles would begin to swell to the purpose that motion was troublesome. This situation continued all through my time in Nepal, and though I checked in at a world clinic, there was nothing that could possibly be finished besides take most doses of ibuprofen whereas the virus ran its course.
This isn’t the primary time I’ve needed to ponder the truths of this verse, that “all issues work collectively for good.” In my logical thoughts, it appeared like God would need me to be wholesome with the intention to do his work. It was very humbling for me to undergo this, however the superb factor was that God used me even in my weakened state!
What are you aware for sure in your journey of life? You’ll be able to plan and put together as a lot as potential however keep in mind that, it doesn’t matter what, it’s all in God’s palms.
Father, assist me to belief you with the difficulties I face immediately, and to imagine that your goodness is at work, even when it doesn’t really feel good to me. Amen.
