And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28 (NASB)

This verse keeps popping up in my daily business, which tells me I need to pay attention.

It’s pretty easy to skip over the first three words “And we know.” In fact, I’m pretty darn sure I’ve been skipping over them most of my bible-reading days. I say I know. I say it out loud. I say it often. What’s being questioned in my heart now is, “Do I believe?”

I am learning day by day through His faithfulness that I can believe. That I can trust that God provides when the way is difficult and unexpected. That though the surface looks like it’s all falling through the cracks of life, it is all being worked together for good. For His good and holy purposes. To bring Him honor and glory.

And that’s enough for me.
