Running inside with his special Star War LEGOs creation, my grandson tripped and fell on the patio steps. He was fine, but his LEGOs crashed and the various pieces flew off in different directions, leaving him very upset.
I came out, gave him a big hug and helped him pick up all the pieces. As we did so, I discovered a sharp piece of broken glass lying under the pile of leaves. “Hey there, Sweetie,” I told him. “Do you remember that verse I taught you? 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.’” “Yup,” he replied. “This is such a perfect example of that verse,” I told him. “You thought it was all bad that you dropped your LEGOs. But God worked it out for our good by using that to help me find this broken glass that could easily have hurt you or your puppy dogs!” He cheerfully agreed, then ran off with a big smile on his face and his hands full of his new and old LEGOs. I followed, enjoying the thrill of watching God at work in his life and mine!
