All Things Work Together …
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 ESV
I know I should have this figured out by now … you know … this Romans 8:28 thing. But I learn slow.
This weekend was our Valentine’s Weekend at America’s Keswick and on Wednesday, listening to the weather forecast, I started to think that maybe I should look into Plan B.
I really didn’t want Plan B. I wanted Plan A. We worked hard at getting Walt Wiley from Winning with Encouragement back to America’s Keswick to speak.
As the weather unfolded, it was obvious that Plan A was unraveling, so I started thinking about “what are we going to do? if Walt couldn’t get here.
It wasn’t that Plan B was bad. My good friend Scott Jackson said he could speak on Friday and Saturday. I love Scott and trust him in the pulpit.
Well Walt and Patti were iced in. So Plan B it is.
And you are smarter than me, so you have already figured out where this is heading.
Plan B was far better than I could have ever imagined. God spoke through Scott in a MIGHTY way and almost every couple said, “I know why Walt and Patti didn’t make it. It was because of me!”
I wish I could say I rested and didn’t fret. I did. But God gave me a valuable reminder: He’s got it all under His control.
Many people left saying, “This was the best conference … EVER!” Abba Father longs for us to get to the place where we can say … “God, I don’t’ need to understand it all – but I trust you. You’ve got it covered.”
What are the areas of your life where you need to make this adjustment?
