He Makes ALL Things Good...

Joining Charlotte and Ginger here:

For everything there is a reason...and a season.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

I believe in the God who sent His only son
to walk upon this world and give His life for us
With blood and tears on a long, dark night
We know that He believed
That there is a reason
There is a reason....

He makes all things good
He makes all things good
There’s a time to live and a time to die
A time for wonder and to wonder why
'cause there is a reason
There is a reason. (There Is A Reason - lyrics)

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven...He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end...I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him." (Ecclesiastes 1:1,11,14)

"For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people."(Hebrews 2:17)

"For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant." (Hebrews 9:15)

God is GOOD...and it is GOD and God alone who makes ALL things good. I believe that.
Do You?
