The Reading for Today

"But now do not be distressed, and do not reproach yourselves for having sold me here. It was really for the sake of saving lives that God sent me here ahead of you." - Gen 45:5

i felt at peace when i was reading the readings for today, especially when i came across the above verse. i really felt God assuring me that everything will be fine.

short sharing... these past few days, i totally felt disappointed with what's happening in my life. everything just seems to go wrong. then i read this verse. this is from the story of Joseph, him being sold by his own brothers, getting in jail, etc. etc.. and then he saving not only egypt but other nations as well.

joseph was right, if what happened to him did not happen, there'll be a different story.. they might not be saved, especially his brothers.

i know that everything will fall into place. this is just some roadblocks on my path, but i will still reach my destination :)

somewhere in Romans it says that all things work together for good to those who believe (I'm paraphrasing here). You still with that catholic group Mark 10? If you have spiritual issues talk to your Priest or a catholic spiritual adviser. just a suggestion.

Romans 8:28 says, "All things work together for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose." If we walk in the will of the Lord, all things will work out for our own good. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

I am sorry to hear that you find things going all wrong in your life at the moment. Just persevere and remain true to yourself. Trust me, eventually, things will sort themselves out. However, don't be passive, ensure you take an active role in your life and continue to press forward - even if it seems hard to do.

I am sorry I can't be there to support you.

Take care.
