“For Our Good, For His Glory”There are many joyful moments in life where we easily see the evidence of God at work. We experience the beauty of his creation, we see the evidence of his handiwork and we know God is at work creating and sustaining his creation. We experience the joy of love and we experience his goodness and blessings in the daily care and favor he shows towards us. Creation, love, daily blessings, the birth of a child, fulfillment in life, his presence with us, all “things” for which we see God’s hand.
But life also has its rainy seasons where God is clouded from our view, when the sun doesn’t seem to be shining. Maybe it’s the loss of a family member, the loss of a job, the pain of a family breakup, heartache over a struggling child, a debilitating illness, or caring for a family member. All “things” for which we struggle to see God at work. And yet, the great affirmation of Romans 8:28 is that “in all things,” the good and the bad, the joyful and the unpleasant, God is at work for our good and for his glory.
I hope that you will join us this Sunday as we spend some time unpacking this tremendously encouraging verse of Scripture. If you’ve ever wondered what God is up to during your difficult trials (and who among us hasn’t wondered), I believe this message will speak to you. Worship at Carrollwood Baptist Church where all are welcomed begins at 10:30 a.m. and Bible study for all ages is offered at 9:15 a.m. CBC is conveniently located at 5395 Ehrlich Road, 1 mile east of the Veterans Expressway and 2.5 miles west of Dale Mabry Hwy. For more information, check out our website at Carrollwoodbaptist.org
Looking forward to sharing the Word of life with the family of God this Sunday.
“I thank my God every time I remember you.”
