All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28
As explained in the post “Steadfast Toward the Mission”, Paul’s ministry cost him dearly but he remained faithful to God even in the most difficult hardships to be an ambassador of Christ. Paul exhibited character during these trials to blaze a path which made it easier for others to understand and receive the power of God.
This great power is available to anyone that accepts God’s grace. Even during the journey when we are busier than we need to be, God can make something amazing from our busyness. That’s good reason to give praise as in this song Every Good Thing by The Afters.
