Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
This is one of my favorite scriptures.  It sounds good on the surface but if you look at it closely you will see that there are some difficult lessons here. 
This verse does not tell us that we are going to enjoy everything that happens to us or that we will see the good in them while they are happening.  I can think of some of the lowest times in my life that I thought definitely could not be for my good.
Looking back on those things I can see that they helped to bring me to where I am in my life today.  Some were growing experiences and some were things that completely changed the course of my life.  While they were happening I could never see the good but looking back I can see God's hand in a lot of them.
Look to God even in the rough times.  You might not understand now why you are experiencing trouble but it could be very clear later in your life.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
