All Things Work Together
By W A Zamorano
Are you being tossed about
by the circumstances in your life?
Are you overcome by fear and doubt
and you cannot see the way out?
Do you lie awake at night,
worrying about the tests and trials,
crashing in on every side,
on the left and on the right?
O Beloved, let me tell you this,
God’s providence will never miss.
He knows the end from the beginning.
He sees when all is bliss
and when we have been sinning.
He takes our failure and our victory
to shape our future and our destiny.
He weaves the dark threads
as well as the bright
into the tapestry of our life.
Whatever it is,
God allows to come our way,
He tells us to rejoice and obey
and He will strengthen our faith.
When Joseph set out on his path,
he suffered his own brothers’ wrath.
When he became a slave,
by his master’s wife he was betrayed.
When he was thrown into jail,
he could have thought that he had failed,
yet he held on and his faith became strong
and God promoted him before long.
Although the end of our journey
is still hidden from our view,
of this we can be sure,
God will not give us more
than what we can endure.
Let it be understood,
what in the Scriptures we are taught,
“All things work together for good
to them that love and trust in God”.
Let us put our faith in Him
and whatever our day may bring,
be it unspeakable Joy or suffering,
God is Lord of everything.
‘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.’
