Blog 28: Romans 8:28

Romans 8:28- And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

I’ve wanted to do a blog over a single Bible verse for quite awhile, but I’ve never thought of a really great verse that people hadn’t already done a ton of lessons over. But since I couldn’t do that, I decided to use one of my favorite Bible verses, Romans 8:28. I like this verse, because I can apply it to the first 14 years of my life really easily. If you knew the story of my past, you would know it could be a very powerful testimony, & I’ll probably end up posting it later on.

But one of the things I can say about life with a 100% certainty is that bad things happen in life, but for some people, like me, they’re really bad. I used to do this, & a lot of people probably do, but I would assume that if something bad happened it would be that it was GOD. & before I became a Christian I would say that no GOD who loved his people could let this happen, & that if there is a GOD, he is not the GOD of the Bible. But I gave my life to GOD & I’ve learned better, now I’ve learned that it’s not GOD who does bad things to us, its sin. They’re the consequences of your own sin, like most of what’s happened to me, or someone else’s sin, which are only a few things of what’s happened to me.

I know a lot about bad things that can happen in life, more than most people, & more than you would think if you met me in person. & one of things I’ve learned about your sin causing something bad to happen, you may not even notice until it’s too late to do anything about, & that’s true in general about bad things happening to people all over the fault, their fault or not. Just look at soldiers, or civilians, who are in a warzone. They don’t know when or what will happen, but it still happens. I have trouble imaging what they see, the burden they carry when they come out, or how it feels. Seeing one of your friends getting shot, accidently shooting a civilian or a fellow soldier, seeing people get blown up, what kind of damage that does to a person. People who get kidnapped, mugged, robbed, physically or sexually abused, raped, whatever. They don’t know it’s coming, but they still carry something away from it. & you can’t know what that’s like, unless you go through it yourself.

The scars they leave would be with them for most, if not the rest, of their lives. The scars can be physical, emotional, mental, or even spiritual, & they’ll never forget it, even if they get over it. Some people can live a normal, or semi-normal life, after it happens, some people can’t do anything related to what happened to them & live a hampered life style for the rest of their life. Some people are lucky & the memory gets repressed, which means they don’t remember it at all, but most people don’t get it repressed. But even if it get’s repressed they may still have scars from it. Someone gets raped & the memory get’s repressed, but they flinch or cry whenever someone touches them. They may have only a physical reminder, like a scar but they don’t know where it came from, or the mental scar, which is the flinching.

But though these bad things happen, though they’re terrible, GOD can make something good come from it. He may not have done, or caused, whatever bad happened, but he can make something good come from it, Romans 8:28. If it’s like mine, he can make a powerful testimony from it. A women get’s raped & she has a kid. She was going to abort nit, but GOD wanted her to keep it. That child grows up & that child grows up & becomes a police officer for the Special Victims Unit, & he puts a lot of stops a lot of bad people.  A woman gets pregnant & the doctor tells her the baby’s heart will be to weak to support it, & recommends it be aborted. She feels GOD tell her to keep it, & that child is born with a severally weakened heart, & it can’t have a normal life because of it, but it still grows up happy & get’s married & has children & gets to raise them, & the whole family becomes heavily involved in supporting children born with heart defects. Someone is an addict & when they turn to GOD he helps them deal with it, & they gain a powerful testimony & are able to help other addicts with their problems. Someone loses a wife, or a husband, or a child & GOD helps them through it; & then they become involved in a ministry to help people deal with grief over losing a wife, or husband, or a child.

So many terrible things can happen in this life, but what can GOD do for you when it happens?

Romans 8:28- And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
