All Things Are Working For Our Good

And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose. — Romans 8:28 (KJV)
All things work together:
Not just our victories, but our defeats.
Not just our success, but our failures.
Not just our promotions, but our demotions.
Not just when we got the job, but when we weren’t even considered for the position.
Not just for the favors we received, but also for the debts that we created.
Not just for our hopes, but for the times that we were discouraged and disappointed.
Not just for our joys, but also for our sorrows.
Not just for the times we laughed, but for the times we cried.
Not just for the smiles, but also for the tears.
Not just for our prayers, but also for our actions.
They’re not in vain. They’re working.
We know that faith without works is dead.
For the times that we were let down, and disillusioned.
They’re all working.
For our weaknesses and our strengths.
They’re working.
For the times we spoke when we should have been silent.
And, for the times that we were silent, when we should have spoken.
They’re working.
All these things are working together for our good.
For the times when God sent us and we didn’t go.
And, for the times He didn’t send us, and we went.
All these things are working.
They are rightly fit together and jointly knit together.
