As I was on my way to my 2nd job today, I was side swiped. The front end of the car was totally mangled. Thoughts kept running through my mind… Why God? Why?
There are many verses in the Bible that are meant to give you & I comfort in distressing situations; however, I go with the often quoted verse coming from Romans 8:28. It says,
“And we know that for all those who love God all things work together for good, for those that are called according to His (God’s) purpose.”
Even bad things? Yup. Even accidents, car or otherwise? Yup. Even when you receive a promotion at work or commendation for the volunteer work you did? Yup. As long as what you are doing (driving to work when I the car got side swiped or my permanent disability caused by an accident that nearly ended my physical life), works together for God’s good, for those that are called according to God’s purpose.
Please help me see Jesus Christ in this because I want to see Jesus Christ glorified whatever it takes. Even when the bad things keep happening, and no relief in store? Yup, even then too…
