God Meant It for Good
Sometimes I really have a hard time trying to wrap my head around life - what is actually is vs. what I expected it to be, and how God is somehow involved in everything - the good and the bad. One of my heroes of the faith, Joni Eareckson Tada, often thinks about this as well. She has TWO up on me - not just chronic pain, but quadriplegia and cancer as well. In my devotional this morning she references the story of Joseph, one of the best examples in the Bible of how God IS working for the good through bad circumstances. It’s always a good reminder for me when the struggles of life get me focused on myself instead of God.
