Wisdom is a gift from God... and I can see that this Brother in Christ has been blessed with this gift. Words of wisdom from a wise, young and God fearing man, Mike Bell (firstname.lastname@example.org) can be found on his Face Book page.
It's All Good
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to (His) purpose." (Romans 8:28)
Here in this text God is saying, "Be an example in the midst of whatever situation I allow you to be in and I will turn the tables." Understand if you have given your heart to the Lord and committed your ways to His ways, you are headed the right way no matter how deserted and lonely you might feel. In my walk with God, I have learned that there will be times of isolation. A time when He just backs off and it appears that you are all alone. "All things work together for good to them that love God." This isolation might not feel "good" but He uses it to build us in our faith. Isolation is the intensive care section in God's kingdom. That's where He sends those who need His personal attention, those who are marked for special tutoring and preparation. You may feel isolated but you are never forsaken. You may have fallen short, you may have slipped and you may have doubted your vision but you need to remember "all things work together for good". The Holy Spirit is our teacher and until we pass the test He has given us, we can't go on to the next course. Learn from the past... walk in what you have learned... and look with expectancy to the future. If you find yourself in God's critical care unit today, REJOICE! "All things work together for good." If you find yourself struggling with finances, REJOICE!! "All things work together for good." If you find yourself rejected and isolated from family and friends, REJOICE! "All things work together for good." You may feel isolated but you are never alone. Jesus promised, "Lo, I am with you always", so just remember to keep on keeping on because "It's all good"!
