As a new year opens for us, let’s remember that God works every detail in our lives into something good.
A new mother was sharing with me how God had so magnificently brought together so many details in her life to bring her to New Beginnings, and how God continues to bless her and her child through the New Beginnings program.
“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.” Romans 8: 28
One of the things that means so much to me is the devotional every evening at New Beginnings. It is a time for the staff and mothers to share their meal time, and be encouraged as we read and discuss Grace Moments together.
Do you think you can lose something worth keeping by God’s ordering of the affairs of the world? You can’t!
What a blessing to be able to come to New Beginnings and learn about our Savior!
He is our God, and has called us according to His own purpose. God works out everything in agreement with the purpose of His will. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, (Ephesians 1:11).
In Him, in everything that occurs we will gain something. It might be hope, or praise, holiness, faith, patience, wisdom, or something else. However, always our best interests are made sure. Everything is working for the good of those who love Him, and even if it may seem hard, it is the right way for us, the best way for us in the end.
