Bad things happen, God is there

Bad things happen in life. Satan has a part to play in the bad things. Our own sins and their consequences also play a part. The rebellion against God and the spiritual weakness in those we love bring hurtful things into our life. Sometimes, God even disciplines us to awaken us out of lethargy or to correct some sinful problem in our lives. Yet in all these things, we have an incredible promise: If we love God and are seeking to honor his call in our lives, our Father in heaven will work out all of the things going on in our life for our good.

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

Dear Lord, it is so good to know your promise to work out all things in my life, both good and bad, for my good. I ask, for faith to believe this promise is true during painful and difficult times. I ask for patience, O God, to hang on to my convictions when trying times persist. I believe your promise and look forward to what you will eventually make of me when you are finished with your work. In Jesus name, Amen.
