Fit Bit (All things, for good? Is hard)
“ And we know all things works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. 29 For those God foreknew He predestined to be conformed to the likeness of HIs Son, that He might be firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those He predestined , He also called; those He called, He also justified, those He justified He also glorified.”
Romans 8:28 used to be one of my favorites verses before we lost of Lovely Erin , hear on Earth. At that point, I was simply angry and thought, “Nothing! Nothing! Can possibly be as good as our Lovely Erin. But as these years unfold, I see recovery in Jesus. My anger has turned into deep sadness and disappointment for us here on Earth, but I still have hope because I know she is glorified, as Romans 8:30 points out.
When our Grandma Muzzy got Cancer it seemed so unfair. Our family was not expecting Grandpa to outlive Grandma. Grandpa was the alcoholic and Grandma was the Saint. God used Grandma’a cancer to truly heal our family. I estimate 80% of her family have now become born again believers. When we see her again, in Heaven, it will be as if no time has passed. (Heaven is not confined by time)
I hate that we suffer here on Earth. It helps me to remember Romans 8:29 ..” To be conformed to the likeness of His Son.”
Healthy and well is not about smiling through everyday as though nothing is wrong, healthy and well in Jesus is trusting no matter what is wrong….God’s got this!!!
Don’t tell God you’ve got a big problem, Tell your problem you’ve got a BIG GOD!!!
Be fit and be blessed,
