All Things Work Together

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.

Romans 8 28

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?

Going the distance with Jesus,

Think About This: In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe, and enough shadows to blind those who don’t. Blaise Pascal

Verses to Memorize: The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you with his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 ESV
