Seeing the hard reality that God really was behind my son Jonathan’s disease and ultimate death, that it was HIS good and perfect purpose. This plan of HIS, a difficult one, this realization was a game changer for me. It has become my all consummating hope which brings the most comfort to me.
God causing tragedy for HIS fatherly purpose is all through the scriptures. HE’S planned it therefore it’s good and full of intendment. Those are words to abundant life. To life to the fullest.
Genesis 50:20 what Joseph’s brothers meant for evil God meant for good. Such marvelous good. The Lord fed a starving world through Joseph’s God given appointment, all those difficult circumstances. Brothers trying to kill you, sold as a slave, accused unjustly for rape, innocent, yet jailed for years,ect.
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
I form the light and create darkness. I bring prosperity and create disaster, I the lord do all these things.
This supremacy of God is what fuels my hope while in firey trials to total steadfast confidence. Our loving Heavenly Father has the perfect Heavenly plan in all our tragedies.
