One of the best things you can remember is:
God really does work all things together for the good of those who love Him (Rom.8:28).
Even our biggest disappointments.
So when things go differently than we hope or expect, it’s not a time to grumble or fear…
It’s a time to see He’s writing our story and fulfilling His purpose differently than we imagined.
And knowing it’s all working out for good ought to keep us from getting discouraged… and help us stay attentive to how He’s working in our lives.
