Triumph in Tragedy

IMG_1362And 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.” Romans 8:28
‭‭

When my circumstances look anything but good, I have a choice. I can choose to complain, worry and doubt, or I can trust God’s Word. God sees the BIG picture. He isn’t limited by time or space. He knows the purpose in my pain. 

This scripture reminds me of another  … “Lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6

There are situations in life where it seems impossible that anything good could come from them; yet how many non-profit organizations have been started because of horrific circumstances. How many people have gone from tragedy to triumph and literally found their calling in life in response to a situation Satan intended to destroy them.

PRAY
Lord, forgive me for being “short sighted”. Help me to always remember, YOU are bigger than anything that happens in my life. Help me to trust Your Word and to know that You will cause ALL things to work together for my good … BECAUSE I love You, and You have called me. Fulfill Your purpose in me. Thank you for your never ending faithfulness.

One thought on “Triumph in Tragedy

  1. Amen, living in fear only adds more stress to a stressful situation. Stress, fear doesn’t come from God but from Satan who wants us to remain in bondage and not truly set free by God.
