“All things work to the good of those who love the Lord, who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

I used to wonder where God was when I was having tough times. Especially, I have wondered where God was when my children were having tough times. However, this illness of osteoporosis has taught me that, when His child is hurting, God is actively working to bring good out of whatever situation has occurred. Osteoporosis itself is not a good thing, but God has brought many blessings to my family and me as I have entered and deepened the process of healing. (See “Faith – Giving Thanks IN Everything”)

This has been a valuable lesson to learn.  Last night my daughter, Kelly, was in a serious car accident. She is physically okay, outside of a sore neck and painful knee, but her heart is heavy because her car–which she recently received as a gift of love from her aunt–was totaled. Before my illness, I would have been furious with God for allowing this to happen to my child. Now I am not so quick to condemn God’s actions. Instead, I am watching to see how He will turn this setback into a blessing in Kelly’s life, and I am resting on His promise that He will do it.
