Yesterday I was going for a drive with my father. I was about to face something that I feared, and something where the results were yet unknown. I knew the Lord was on my side, but I still did not know what would happen.
As my dad followed the road, he related something to me he had been discussing with my mother:
"It really doesn't matter what happens in this life. This life is really nothing. What matters is where we spend eternity. And what happens in this life is really to bring God glory. We know from Romans 8:28 that He is working things out for our good because we love Him. It may not be for what we see as good, but it is for our ultimate good."
I looked around at God's beautiful creation still tainted by sin as we passed by on the road. And I knew he was right. And I had peace.
God did show Himself glorious yesterday, and He did work for my good. I know that. I am so thankful for His power, love, and protection.
