My Future husband has a wonderful story about providence, the providence of God and how amazingly divine it is and how it jumps out of no where and picks you up and places you in the very place God intends for you to be. I’ll not be sharing his story here but I would like to look at this a little bit.

This month we’ll be getting married and continuing on the path of providence.  We both know and believe that we are together for such a time as this and that God led us here.  Its one of those moments in life that you know, that you know, that you know that God has this one!

From the moment we met we both knew it was special and divine.  As the years, almost 2 now, went by we continued to be assured beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was up to something good and right.  We both came from a jaded past and both weren’t super willing to trust 100% in each other but we were both 100% willing to trust in God and that is just what we did.

Romans 8:28  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.

In Raymond Ortland’s commentary he says:

The hand of God is at the helm, He’s steering us through the storms of life toward home, toward a safe haven.  And he takes care to order all the events of our lives right now to speed us on our way there. This is what we call PROVIDENCE.  God’s over ruling hand at work everywhere in a fallen world.  Our confidence in the providence of God is a faith so bold, so demanding, so unapologetic that we cannot believe it without being transformed.  Either all things work together for good or nothing makes sense.

….A faith so bold, so demanding….WOW, do I have this kind of faith?  I’d like to believe I do and I’ll live it out to prove it.  Faith is the key to seeing God’s providence and it’s the key to living a life of circumstances, troubles and difficulties with joy and freedom.

Join me over the next couple of blogs as I dissect this little verse in the bible that is packed full of meaning and depth and truth.  Its our family verse and it leads us and guides us to living abundant life.  

God worked it together for good!
