Max Lucado reminds us, “It all works out in the end. If it hasn’t worked out yet, then it’s not the end.” As Michael Hyatt points out in his post this morning, Romans 8:28 is STILL in the Bible. God has something special for you.  In fact, everything’s happening for a reason. And if you’re in a conflict right now… and if you’re going to take Romans 8:28 as true… then God has something good  for you in the end.  And God has something good for the person you’re in conflict with in the end as well. I think it’s the ‘working’ part of Romans 8:28 that we don’t like.  And many times we don’t get that during the ‘working’ stage. So… don’t worry… if it hasn’t worked out yet, God’s not finished. That may be just the word you need to make it through your day. via Romans 8:28 Still in the Bible. What do YOU think?

Barbara Brown Taylor (who?) 7.  David Jeremiah (a fellow Cedarville alumni) 8.  Max Lucado (way to go, Maxy) 9.  John Piper (Love John Piper) 10.  Andy Stanley (is he still alive?)
