Good from Bad

Our Bible verses today are some of my most favorite verses. Verse 28a is especially important to me. “We know that in everything God works for the good of those people that love him.”
As I write this devotion, thousands of people across the United States have been affected by terrible tornadoes. Many people have been killed, and thousands of people have lost their homes and belongings.
I have talked with Christians who survived these tornadoes. It is wonderful to hear them tell about the great things that God is doing in their lives. Yes, they have experienced something very bad. But God has made good things come from that bad.
It is important for us to remember this when we are facing rough times. We should not focus on the bad experiences. Instead, we should thank God for His love and the good things that are happening in our lives.
