Years ago I began highlighting Bible verses that spoke to me in the midst of traumatic events. This month I am sharing some of these verses and a short reflection.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28 (NIV)
It was hard to believe God was in all things — even when I was overwhelmed by endless trials. “How could anything good come out of this?” I repeatedly asked myself. Yet I clung to my faith in God, my love for him. I sought him in prayer. I coveted the prayers of others blanketing us.
I still wrestle with trauma being part of his purpose. I try to rest in the thought that this is what he has called me to. Today I can see some good that has come out of the trials, but there are still many unanswered questions. I am still learning to trust God’s wisdom, his purposes, his infinite goodness.

YES—GOD CAN USE EVEN A FALLEN WORLD—AND ITS CONSEQUENCES—TO GROW HIS CHILDREN INTO MATURITY IN CHRIST JESUS!
YOWSA TO GOD!
We humans only learn through trials and tribulations. God loves us that much; He brings us through and blesses us.
For sure the trials teach us. They are hard lessons, but fruitful. Blessings.
Some days are harder than others. We all are a work in progress! God bless you for your transparency. Like you, “I still wrestle with trauma being part of his purpose,” but I turn my eyes upon Jesus and trust in His wonderful grace. He has not failed me yet!
Yes, some days, weeks and months are indeed harder than others, but praise God he is steadfast. Praise Him for his eternal wisdom. Thanks for the comment. Blessings.
All things work together for good (for those who love Him) because God is in all things.
I’d never thought about it quite like that before.
God is the absolute BOSS of everything; that’s why, ultimately, good is guaranteed!
I have seen in my life times when I thought something was a bad thing turn out to be a good thing. I do not always understand God’s wisdom, but I am learning to have faith in his plan. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Blessings.
