Good in All Things…?

God Works Good In All Things

“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

Someone once showed an expensive handkerchief to an artist. The handkerchief had a blot of ink on it.

“Nothing can be done with that!” the person said, thinking that the handkerchief was now ruined and worthless.

The artist took it with him and after a time sent it back to his friend. In a most skillful and artistic way he had made a fine design on the handkerchief, using the blot as its foundation. Instead of being ruined, the handkerchief was made far more beautiful and valuable.

In the same way, God takes the flaws and blots and stains of our lives, the disfiguring blemishes, and by His marvelous grace changes them into strength and beauty of character! God gives us “beauty for ashes.” (Isaiah 61:3)
