Word-Filled Wednesday : All things work together for good

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

This is my comfort through all the changing scenes in life. No matter what we go through whether joy or pain, God is able to work them for His glory and our good.

May this truth strengthen your heart and may you know God's love and guidance in many wonderful ways today and everyday!

For more Word-Filled Wednesday participants, do visit Amy at The 160 Acre Woods. It will be a very blessed and encouraging experience for you.

Thank you for stopping by. Thanks for your prayers and encouragements. Hope you have a blessed day!

Very true to me last weekend. Sigh. Thanks for your sweetness. I missed my weekend meme and haven't posted my WFW yet... but I am blessed just to have friends like you in the web. Take care sister. By the way, would you care to do a tag? I have one for you from Denise. :) Hope you can do this. Shalom!:$

There are times in life that this verse is hard to hear...particularly in the midst of a storm...but in the end it is true.

Thanks for the awards...I do plan to post about them, but I have just had so much to share lately, I haven't had time. I do appreciate your thinking of me, though.

We are made in the image of God, has a purpose, to be in relationship to God, who is always there. Sometimes we forgets our purpose and we forget who we are and what life means. This is the concept of Romans 8:28-29 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." God governs (controls) the world (Isa. 40:22-24), the nations (Isa. 40:15-17), and us (Proverbs 16:9).

One of the greatest and most essential attributes of God is His sovereignty; God rules over all things and controls all things. 'Providence" means God’s faithful, moment-by-moment control over everything He has made to ensure that everything He has created are going according to His will. He is active in every detail of it. He’s active at every moment. He doesn’t stand back and let things happen because He decides to intervene if something or someone is not going according to His will. He governs the world moment-by-moment through providence, so that everything that happens, every detail of our life occurs by God's divine providence or by God’s express permission. He is in control of everything. Even the bad things that happen to us are circumscribed by a loving providence and God promises to use them all for our ultimate good. There is a verse in the Bible that God promises that there won’t be anything so bad happen to us that we’re not able to bear it. God does everything--He governs everything.” God doesn’t just sit back and wait until He wants to act and then do it through a miracle.”

By the way, I am back :)
