Thankful Thursday: Only God Knows

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

Our preacher last night shares, “God gives us good things. Our choices, judgments and decisions are only the things that make them look bad.” I was contemplating on this statement until before I went to bed. Yes, indeed all things are from God. Whether we look at them as good or bad, only our faith can tell. As the adage says, “Whether good or bad, only God knows, for God is God!”

The past days, I had my series of emotional ups and downs. But still I believe that God is in control of everything. This week I’m thankful…

  • That my brother is recuperating. He’s still feeling weak because of the hospitalization but he’s getting better and better each day.
  • For God’s provision, we we’re able to pay for his hospital bills.
  • For God’s wisdom. We almost got caught of a scam as posted here. Truly He is guiding us and giving us right judgment every time we need it.
  • For my husband’s trust on my opinion. He always shares and consults me every time and I’m grateful for that.
  • For everything good or bad experiences I had theses past days. Truly God is amazing and in control.
What are you thankful for this week? Share it here.
