By day He directs His love and at night His song is with me -- this is a prayer to the God of my heart

Hope for the Best
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them
Only those who hope in the freedom and glory we’ve been promised (v24-25) can look at the world we live in and know that God is working for our good. We don’t live in a good world but we, as children of God, trust Him to work everything out. He has a plan of ultimate good and ultimate glory unto Himself. No matter what we go through, how much we hurt or suffer, we have the promise that everything will be good. We don't see the whole picture, but God does. We only see through a black and white narrow lens. We are so narrow minded. God sees the end result.
We've won! Christians are on the winning side. Nothing we do or don't do can change that. NOTHING can frustrate the will of God, which is GOOD.
(and believe me...if there was a way to screw it up I probably would have already)
