"But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good ..." Genesis 50:20

Things happen. Some of those things we interpret as "bad things." We often pin the blame on the devil and complain that we are "under attack." Whether or not that is the case, we must not lose sight of the fact that, whatever it is, God means it for our good. God has a way of turning our loss into gain, tragedy into triumph, defeat into victory, mourning into dancing. He is not taken by surprise when something doesn't go as we planned or expected. He doesn't wring his hands wondering, "What are we going to do now?" He is working all things together for our good.

Difficulties many come our way;
Trials and tears beset our day.
Frustrations, fears, or come what may.
Trusting Him is where we'll stay.

Heavenly Father, help us to see that you are always at work in our lives. Help us to see that the roadblocks and detours along the way are just you redirecting our lives. When things come our way that we don't understand, may we never cease to trust you. Though we may not know where the next step will take us, may we, in faith, hold your hand in the confidence that you know where we are going. Amen.
