I love this song by Tauren Wells – “there will be joy”. It’s a great song, I would encourage you to check it out. But it doesn’t speak of real true joy.
Ok ok chill out – it’s a great song. But I have an issue with the line: “…if it’s not good then he’s not done…”
That’s not the case.
I mean I can guarantee you there are a lot of cases where people had not good .. horrible .. terrible things that happened and that’s it. But? They learned. They learned to lean on the Lord, to look to the only one who can get us through.
Recently, I have truly learned (ha .. will always be learning) what this verse is really talking about. “All things..” refers to all that you are going through. Good .. bad .. horrendous .. are things that are gonna lead you to good – yes. But that doesn’t refer to earthly good. But heavenly. Take a look at me…
This house .. this move .. my health … one thing after another after another. But each? Has drawn me closer to God. Developed my faith, hope & trust in Him. Would I go through it again knowing what I know?
Yeah. I would. This faith and hope I have? Wow. It’s amazing. I have been through hell and continue to suffer but I do it willingly – so that I may, not only bring glory to God, but so that I can truly understand how powerful my God is.
