After da big storm there was something odd about da bayou. It’s like all dem critters were thrown into a large gumbopot and stirred.

“We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Romans 8:28 NLT).

The Bible isn’t saying that every event in your life will be good. You and I both know that’s just not true. But it does mean that when you put your whole life together, every piece of it works together for good. It’s like making a cake. You may not like the taste of each ingredient, but when it’s all put together, it comes out tasting good. God wants to bake an amazingly tasty cake with your life, and he wants to use even the distasteful and bitter elements to do it.

God also doesn’t say that everything works together like we want it to or that every story will have a happy ending. Instead, this verse reminds us that we can have absolute confidence that the Master Designer of the universe causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God.
