He Orders All Things For Our Good

“Many a Christian looking back across life has thanked God for a loss, for illness, for sorrow; these troubles helped in the nurture of his soul and his spiritual development.  God knows best what is good for us; His heart is love, and we are in His hands.  What we must always remember is that nothing can happen to us apart from Him, and that ‘all things work together for good to them that love God’.  God is concerned about our holiness, about our ultimate eternal happiness; and He orders all things for our good.  Let us rest in His love and in the power of HIs might.”  –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “God’s Ultimate Purpose — Ephesians 1” p. 445

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
