These Things I Know
“I Know Good Things Can Come Out Of Bad Things”
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28, KJV.
Our life is somewhat like a jig saw puzzle. Our days are filled with bits and pieces of life that might include work, travel, relationships, laughter, sadness, memories, stress and so many other things that are small parts but they make up our whole day.
We can’t see the whole day till we reach the end of the day and look back and then we can review the day as a whole. As we review the day, we might see some difficult moments, some good moments, some really challenging moments and some really happy moments. You can then make a decision as to how good a day it really was.
The scripture I’ve selected for today, reminds us that same principle works when we reach the end of a really bad ordeal in our life. One day we can look back at that really bad time in our life and see some good things that eventually came out of that really difficult event.
As we look at a jig saw puzzle that is still in the box, it makes absolutely no sense. However, as the pieces begin to come together, the picture becomes more evident and when it is finished, and all the pieces fit together, the puzzle makes perfect sense and something good came out of that box filled with nothing but pieces.
So is life and so are bad and horrible events in our life; they make no sense at times and we cannot even begin to understand the why and we see nothing but the bad. Yet, as life goes on, we can begin to see, bit by bit, the hand of God as some good things begin to come out of the bad things.
Be encouraged today in knowing, if you love God through the easy times and you love God through the hard times, when all things are considered and the puzzle finally fits together, all of it will work together for the good.
