Oh No, Not Relationships Again

Oh Yes, Relationships Again

God has definitely got a mysterious way of dealing with things. I’m kind of glad, though, that I can’t see the bigger picture like He can. Otherwise there would be no need for faith. Where God closes one door, He does open another, that I guarantee. We might not always like what He’s doing, but we can bank on Romans 8:28 (NKJV) in this case:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

So patience, prayer, and loving-kindness toward one other shouldn’t fail, even when we feel let down, hurt, or treated in a way we think unfair. Let adversity strengthen our faith, because He is there and there is a purpose to everything that happens (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). I’m just thankful for the time we get to spend one another, and while it hurts when it ends in a bad way, at least we can wake up in the morning (if we’re so blessed) and praise God for another beautiful day.

And out of all that has happened over the past year, I still look back fondly on the good times and eventually — if there was no lesson to be learned — forget the bad.
