There have been many times where verses have stuck out to me and I’m sure that this has happened to you too! So there is two verses that I want to reflect on today. They honestly go together really well also. The first one is from John chapter 11 verse 35. It is the shortest verse in the whole bible and it says Jesus wept. If you know It’s the story where Lazarus was dead for 4 days and Martha said to Jesus if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. Jesus later says I am the resurrection and the life. When Jesus saw her weeping he also started weeping. The second verse I want to look at is Romans chapter 8 verse 28. It says ”We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.” I have really been reflecting on this verse specifically because even in the mist of everything God is working for the good. Like come to think about it now there isn’t as many distractions and also we have gotten more time to spend with family and just time to relax and to recharge. There have been many times before where I felt like this wasn’t true at all but in reality it is. So if we look at these 2 verses put together we can interrupt it like this It hurts God to see us suffering and he weeps with us, but its also for the good. he always brings out the good in every situation. Sometimes we just have to struggle a little bit. No matter what we always come out of the situation stronger then before. I think we really just need to love Jesus more no matter what and he made promises to us and he always keeps those promises.
Final thoughts I have. In what ways can you trust in God more? What situations has God pulled you out of or made it work out for the better? In what ways has God blessed you?
