God can bring good out of bad times. If we place our complete trust in him, even in the worst of times we know that God cares. He can turn our sorrow into joy. A perfect example is Naomi and Ruth. God turned their bitterness into joy. Naomi’s husband died, her sons got married and then the two sons died. While all this happened to their family there was also a famine in the land. They both probably felt pretty devastated and hopeless but God blessed them and turned their situation around. Ruth married Boaz who loved her and they had a son, Obed. Naomi and Ruth were blessed with a family and the women of the town praised God for blessing them.
Are you bitter towards something that you feel like was unfair to you? Turn it over to the Lord and let him turn your bitterness into joy.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, whohave been called according to his purpose.
