And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
There are no accidents with God, nor is He surprised by anything or anyone in the life of His child. God uses even the most horrendous circumstances for our good.
Every circumstance comes to us for a purpose, bound by God’s love and plan and faithfully delivered with His permission. While we cannot go back and change our past, we can change the way we respond to our past and determine how much power it has in our lives today.
Only God can take the broken pieces of your life and make something beautiful out of each one. He is waiting for you to let go of your pain and trust Him.
And you really can trust Him. No one loves you like He does. You may not always understand or even like His process, but you can always trust His heart of love for you.
Choose to believe He is faithful and will do what He promises to do in His Word. I believe when you lay the pain and hurt of your past at His feet, He not only can but also will transform it all into something beautiful. Choose to believe He will turn the broken places of your life into living illustrations of His sufficiency and healing power. Trust the Lord.
What treasures have you discovered in the dark times of your life? What tragedy has God transformed into a triumph that has changed your life? Praise Him right now for doing so.
