Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman
The above Scripture may be the best loved- and most disliked verse in the Bible. Often offered as a pat answer, there it stands promising that God works everything together for good. Sometimes that’s hard to believe. When I was a young mom with three preschoolers, I fell in love with Jesus and wanted to please Him. I’d finishing listening prayers by listening and at times in the silence I’d think of something I should do.
Once I was moved to write an encouraging letter to a friend, so I did. I stamped it and set it by the door. The next morning I tucked the letter safely in the car’s glove box….where it stayed, forgotten for weeks until I opened the box again. I cried when I saw the letter. I’d been so sure I needed to write to my friend.
I did my best and failed. I came close to throwing the letter out, but I mailed it any way. We don’t always know the ends of our stories, but this time I heard back from my friend within two weeks. She hit a rough patch in her life a day or two before receiving it. She had prayed, “Lord I need to know You care,” on the way to the mailbox, where she found the letter from me, delayed just long enough to have arrived at the perfect time.
