Romans 8:28 ~ The Amplified Bible
We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
Do you ever look back on your life and feel like you've made a mess of things? Do you wish there was a "do over" button? Sometimes it's willful sin, other times it's just a innocent mistake. The beautiful part of God's grace is that He can take a mess and weave His love and grace around it to bring good for us and glory to His name. Friends, be encouraged that He knows right where you are today. Nothing has taken Him by surprise. Find hope today that even if your life is not what you hoped, you can trust Him that through obedience and patience He will make all things beautiful in His time.
