Life Can Be Beautiful

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."1

A friend wrote about holding her breath when she saw a lady come sailing out of a local shopping center in a wheelchair. "She was as happy and joyful as any mother I had ever seen," my friend said.

In this handicapped mother's lap sat her little boy. He laughed out loud as his mother did a fancy spin in her wheelchair. Round and round they went, laughing with delight as they disappeared into the crowd.

I realize that there are many tragic situations in this life, as we live in a world that has been broken by mankind's fall into sin, and all of life's "curses" will not be put away until Jesus Christ returns for all those who have put their faith and trust in him, and accepted him as their Savior and Lord.

In the meantime, however, in thinking about the handicapped women in the wheelchair, in so many of life's situations, life can become beautiful for many who have major setbacks in their life when they daily commit and trust their life to Jesus Christ, and in their mind and thinking choose to make the very best with what they have, in spite of what they don't have.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank you for the promise in your Word that assures me that 'all things' do work together for good for those who love you and who are called according to your purpose. Please take my life and make something beautiful out of it all for the glory of your name, and please help me to love you with all my heart, mind and strength. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Romans 8:28 (NKJV).
