I have been making a life map for a class that I am taking. A life map is meant to be a visual time line of key moments in your life. I have been writing down the dates and seasons of significant and key moments in my life. I have been trying to include both good times and those that I considered difficult times. As I was looking at this life map the other day, I was struck by the way I can see God’s hand involved in my life at each point along the way. As I reflected on this I was reminded of Romans 8:28.
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
As I look at my life map, I can see the good that God has ultimately brought about in every situation. I can tell that God has used each and every moment to mold me and make me, to teach me and train me and to correct me and coach me. I am grateful for God’s interest and involvement in my life; my life map reminds me of His great love and care for me. I hope you know that He loves and cares for you too.
