THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Jane, a Sunday School teacher, awakened Sunday morning with a very ill stomach.
She managed to call the Sunday School Director, and get a substitute.
About noon, she began to feel better, and started sipping on a soda to ease the remainder of the sick stomach.
The phone rang, and Jane let her five-year-old daughter answer.
"Yes, Mommy was really ill this morning. But she's had a few drinks now and is feeling better."
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.
I'm sure Jane wondered how what her daughter had said would "work together for good!"
One Monday morning, my wife had to be at the store at 8:30am.
She left at 8:15, and called me to the carport.
One of the tires on her car was flat!
Hurriedly I changed the tire, and got her on the road.
But, I had a doctor's appointment at 9:00am, and had to "clean up" quickly.
When I went to the carport, one of MY tires was flat!
Hurriedly, I called the doctor's office to explain I would be late.
The receptionist said, "Don't worry Bro. Bruce, the doctor is going to be late. He had a flat tire too!"
Sometimes the experiences we have in life don't "feel good" at the time!
But God can coordinate "all things" to contribute to our "good."
The underlying principle is that we "love God."
Our love for God keeps our focus on HIM rather than our circumstances!
Keep your FOCUS!
