Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” This is the promise that morphs us into resilient, cheerful people, whatever our temperament. It’s God darkroom in which negatives become positives. It’s His situation-reversal machine in which heartaches are changed into hallelujahs. It’s the foundation of hope and the foundation of confidence. Even our failures can become enriching and our sins redeemed. Even a “tragedy” itself becomes a blessing for the child of God. This is what my student and her mother experienced. She took matters into her “hands”, trusted in the Lord that all things would turn out in her favor and it HAS!!! LET GO AND LET GOD!
God chose that I should never talk and share a voice with you.
My world will be a silent one– my ears hears nothing, too.
Why was it I was chosen to be so all alone–
My inner voice was asking if the answer could be known.
Then I look into the mirror and saw good things looking back,
I had to take the positives– put them on the right track.
I thought a lot about it, and now I want to shout,
The wondrous gifts God gave me outnumber what He left out.
So let me take the challenge in meetings life’s demands–
I have the power to change things,
and it lies here in my hands. ~ Stevie Drown
