Romans 8:28 ??

Excerpt from WHEN YOUR SOUL ACHES by Lois Mowday Rabey:

I couldn’t stand it when people would come up to me and spout off the familiar words of Romans 8:28: “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.”

I know you know what I mean.

We believe that verse, but it stings when those words are flung at us as if to snap us out of our grief.  It takes time to see goodness in our lives again, and we may never understand why God allowed our husbands to die.  We may not be able to answer in our own hearts just how death can demonstrate anything good.

There is a bigger picture than the one we see at any given moment, and God is working in all the moments of our lives.  Time must pass and healing must happen before we can transform our belief in God’s goodness into a reality in our lives.

God is patient, and He will stay beside you as you walk from grief to joy.  Right now He is working those good things out in your life.  Stay close to Him.

  1. Dear Candy ~ That is one of my favorite scripture verses. I can see where it would hurt to hear this when one is hurting so badly. God does work things out in time.

    Love and hugs to you as you continue this earthly journey, with Jesus being with you every step of the way.
