My Creator turns my mourning into praise!

Let God restore your shattered dreams. We, like Joseph of the Bible, can develop 50/20 vision—a vision which tells us: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good!” (Genesis 50:20) Such trust dares to believe that God can take the worst materials and turn them into good. It projects meaning and purpose into what seems meaningless and accidental. Godly vision does not gloss over evil like some New Ageism philosophy. Instead, it looks evil straight in the face and recognizes it to be evil. However, our Creator God can transform all of that into good. Joseph never said, “If only…” or “poor me”…but instead he said, “How can I best serve my God in this place?” Romans 8:39: For I am convinced that nothing in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Samuel Longfellow: “Thy Providence turns all to good …Thou leadest me by unsought ways, and turns’t my mourning into praise.”
