All Things Work Together For Good

It has become warmer these days. No more frost, but lots of clouds and little sunshine. I hope these grey days won't last so much longer.

There isn't very much to share other that we are still busy preparing our Health Expo for mid-April. Yesterday at church, I had 12 more people sign up for it, which of course was encouraging. But we still don't have enough volunteers, and they have been a bit slow at the church which is collaborating with us. There are so many things to consider, and the language barrier doesn't make it easier of course.

At the same time, I also have to continue with the first preparations of our camp meeting in August. There are still some questions I can't answer at this point. Our late Thomas, the team member who passed away last year, had done so much in the past, and his input is really missing now. So I have taken over tasks I don't really feel competent with. Also the Health Expo is a first for me. However, I can't imagine that the Lord doesn't want me to do all these things, so I'm praying for His guidance, strength and wisdom. I hope things will become clearer soon.

So I'm pondering Romans 8:28, and what the Lord may want to teach me in all these challenges. Well, we are promised that all things work together for good to them that love God - this I know!

"The Father's presence encircled Christ, and nothing befell Him but that which infinite love permitted for the blessing of the world. Here was His source of comfort, and it is for us. He who is imbued with the Spirit of Christ abides in Christ. Whatever comes to him comes from the Saviour, who surrounds him with His presence. Nothing can touch him except by the Lord's permission. All our sufferings and sorrows, all our temptations and trials, all our sadness and griefs, all our persecutions and privations, in short, all things work together for our good. All experiences and circumstances are God's workmen whereby good is brought to us."  Ministry of Healing, p. 488
