...all things work together for good to them that love God. Romans 8:28.
A Missionary was captured by cannibals. "I suppose you intend to eat me?"
said the Missionary, and the chief grunted his affirmation. "Try a sample
first, and see if you like me." said the Missionary as he took his knife
and cut a slab from the calf of his leg and handed it to him.
"Try this and see!"
The chief took one bite and choked. The Missionary had a cork leg. The chief
wanted no more of it and the Missionary was spared.
Years before, he had thought it a "great misfortune" to lose his left leg and
to wear an artificial leg, but afterwards it saved his life. It also preserved
a great ministry that would have other wise been terminated immediately by the
cannibals. Yes, it worked out "for good!"
Are you going through a "tragedy" at this moment dear friend? Then remember
ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD, TO THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD JESUS! ALL THINGS!
"Those who leave everything in God's hand will eventually see God's hand in everything!"
