Romans 8:28

Not exactly sure where I'm going with this post, but I feel compelled to write.  So... here it goes...

If you are a Christian, you trust that despite what this world puts you through, God will use all things for the good of those that love Him. (Romans 8:28)

It's times like these that I cling to that biblical promise.

I got into a car accident Tuesday.  I'd rather not go through the play by play of what happened again, so let me spare you those details.  The bottom line is this: we've been without a car payment for some time now, and it appears as if we won't be able to avoid that anymore. 

Just when we think we're going to get ahead financially - CRASH - life happens.  It's depressing, but it is what it is.  And I reach out for Romans 8:28 and trust...

In other news... I got an e-mail from the principal of the local high school to which I requested a transfer.  She wants to see me for an interview!  This is GREAT news!  And so I grab onto Romans 8:28 and wait...

It has been an emotional roller coaster of negative an positive emotions this past week, and all the while, Romans 8:28 has rung in the back of my head...

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

What more can I say?  What more can I do?

We are at His mercy, and in a way, it's unsettling to this control freak.  And in a way, well, there's nowhere else I'd rather be...

"The Stand"

You stood before creation
Eternity in your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
And carried the cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what could I say?
And what could I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

So I'll walk upon salvation
Your spirit alive in me
This life to declare your promise
My soul now to stand

So what could I say?
And what could I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the one who gave it all
I'll stand
My soul Lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours
