One of my most recent posts, Humans are Suffering, prompted a response from my loved ones that touched me deeply. It is amazing how much power simply writing a post can have on the awareness of people worlds away from the trauma.
My beautiful sister told me that the post reminded her of a verse from the book of Romans in the Bible. The preceding verses speak volumes to the world we live in today. I encourage you, even if you are not a believer, to read this passage.
In the King James Version Bible, Romans, Chapter 8:28-34:
“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.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us?”
How does this make you feel?
