We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:28-29
All of us have heard sermons about how God causes the circumstances of life to work together for our good and His glory. But do you believe it? Can you say in the middle of disappointment that God is at work? Sometimes it is difficult. Sudden disaster or an unplanned event can leave you wondering WHY GOD allowed you to face such turmoil.
The only way to deal with pain is to view it through the eyes of God. Ask Him to help you view the circumstances of your life from His perspective. You may not see all things clearly. But know that the same Lord who saved you loves you with an everlasting love, and He will not abandon you or forsake His work in your life.
There is a point at which you must accept that you live in a fallen world. Sin is a part of the wretched conditions of our environment. The only thing that matters in times like these is your internal belief system.
You are a beloved child of God. If sorrow touches your life, God knows all about it. He hurts with you. Yet He is strong enough to take your pain and loneliness and produce something worthwhile out of them. He will use the abuse you have suffered to help you reach out to others who have been hurt and are struggling. He will take your pain and tragedy and use both to mold you into a loving, caring individual.
Father, please take my pain and tragedy, and use them to mold me into a loving, caring individual.
