It's All Good!

I am adopting a new philosophy these days...no matter what the struggle or the trial, I am using this phrase:"it's all good!" You may say that sounds kind of dumb because everything isn't always good. You are correct about that but I have been reading a great deal about the negative effects of worry and anxiety. I am also certain that my blood pressure could be lowered a bit so if I can get out of my head and be controlled by my spirit...it's all good!

Scripture tells us to "count it all joy" when we face various types of trials and difficulties. Now we don't always count it joy because it's good news! We do this because we know that the tough times are making us tougher. In all of the challenges, God is up to something. In the Book of Philippians we are told to rejoice and to give thanks IN everything! Not FOR everything, but IN it.

Maybe you are worried about a certain situation today. Perhaps you have gotten a bit discouraged over all the financial news that is bombarding the TV. God is in control and He is faithful. He not only takes care of us, He watched out for us. That is what we called "blessed assurance". So no matter what happens today, turn up the corners of your mouth into a smile(: and say it with me...it's all good!

Romans 8:28(amplified) We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose
