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.
Romans 8:28

Sometimes this verse is hard to believe. I have a friend going through a very tough time with a death in the family and sickness also. My daughter has a friend whose house burned down. They lost everything. Most of them didn’t even get out with shoes. We all know people going through very challenging times. We have been there ourselves and maybe you are there now. When things around us seem to be collapsing it is time to pray to God and tell Him all that concerns us, thank Him for hearing us and thank Him for His provision, past, present and future. Then we must choose to leave our worries with Him and trust He will show us the way through our challenge. Quite often His way involves other people whom He calls to reach out to us. It might be our time to be one of those who reaches out to someone going through a challenge. What a privilege and blessing it is for God to allow us to be part of His love and provision for others. If you are in the midst of a challenge today, give it to God. If you aren’t, tell God you’re available and keep your eyes and your heart open to those around you.
