I was pondering the verse that says "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God...". You know I have loved many things in this world and chased after them too. But none of those things brought me satisfaction, complete contentment or joy like knowing I am in God's purpose. That is the last part of the verse "... to them who are the called according to his purpose." At present I know that where I am is right in the middle of where God wants me. That is a comfort in the midst of this crazy world.
Still I struggle with all things working for good.
I see members of my own family struggling with injustices occurring in the work place; no integrity, lying tongues and sewing of discord. I must keep my eyes focused on the Creator to see how He chooses to handle the situation with my dearest. I can't fix the situation and make it better. I can't work a finished solution like I did with the postcard. Out of scrapes, pains, and bits-n-pieces of our lives comes the finished product - a person that can say "no matter the outcome I will believe all things work together for good."
