“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him…” Romans 8:28
While it can be hard to see at times, I really believe this verse. Here are some examples that I see in the recent October Nor-Easter of 2011:
+ Countless wood piles are being filled for those who burn wood to heat their homes and provide for their families as a result of all the downed trees.
+ Quality time gets spent with family members who cannot be attached to electronic devices of all shapes and sizes.
+ Relationships are newly forged or reignited with neighbors we usually pass in the night.
+ People have the opportunity to serve their neighbors in various ways enabling them to grow in the grace of giving.
+ A renewed sense of what is really important can be noticed when lives are at stake.
+ A renewed sense of thankfulness for the ‘little things’ can direct our praise toward God more frequently.
