We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God—those whom He has called according to His plan.    Romans 8:28


Life is often a series of varied experiences that with a naked eye it would be hard to believe that one thing contributed to the other. I am sure that many of us go through some things in life and wonder how this could possibly be a part of His plan for me. And it may be true that some things are not His perfect will for our lives. We may have made some choices not based on His Word and some hard lessons may need to be learned. Or maybe someone else’s poor decisions may have negatively impacted our lives. Despite all the things that we experience, once our situations are given to God, He is able to take the remnants of all of our experiences and weave them together for our good. This blessing from God I liken to a beautiful quilt that is composed of the shapes of our experiences. The individual shapes are colored with a spectrum of our joys and our pains. Standing alone an individual shape may be incredibly undesirable and ugly but in God’s hands woven with His grace and His mercy, stitched with His love, His peace and His joy it becomes a part of the beautiful fabric of our lives in Him.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 26-28 MSG
