Welcome to the relaunching of hmontgomeryjr.com. It’s a Blog that provides Leadership and Life Lessons For The Rest Of Us: A Commonsense Approach, thus the title of the blog.
For my first posting in over three years I want to discuss the concept of N.E.W. (Nothing’s Ever Wasted). Throughout our life’s journey we experience a lot of things, some good and some not so much. Most of what we experience we have no control over. What we do have control over is how we react to the events that life sends our way.
I believe that everything we go through helps us become the person we are intended to become. I’m a firm believer in the words of Romans 8:28 in the Holy Bible…
“And we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to HIS purpose.” (NIV)
The key to this scripture is that all things, not some things, but all things work to the good for those who love GOD and are called according to HIS purpose. That means the good, the bad and all things in between.
So remember to thank GOD for all your blessing and the good in your life, but also remember to be thankful even when things appear not to be going well. Hold on to GOD’s promise that he is always working for your good.
We may not understand his plan, but we have to have faith and believe that HE is true to HIS Word. Be Blessed and also remember…We may not know what the future may hold, but know that GOD is in Control.
