Romans 8:28   “We know that by turning everything to their good God co-operates with all those who love Him, with all those He has called according to His Purpose.”

We learn in all of the Good Shepherd verses like Matthew 18:12 that all are called, sought, and wanted.

Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses.  When it first jumped off the pages at me many years ago, the hyphen between co and operate spoke deeply to me about how our Creator Christ wants to team with us in a Pilot/Copilot type of arrangement.  This appears in The Jerusalem Bible.  We are co operators together on this whole life thing.  I was also heartened greatly by the idea of our top dog teammate seeking to work everything to our good and how much Real Love that was.

In our experiment in self governance here in The United States of America, we were founded on the trust of God’s Guiding this massive milieu  and rely on that Guidance ongoing to turn everything to our good.  Abandoning God abandons our support structure and operating system and leaves a mess.

I like God, thank God, appreciate God, and seek God’s Will.  It’s fun and fruitful.  I hope you do or try too.  It’ll help your life, your family, your state, and your country.

I Love You and so does Jesus, God, and The Holy Spirit along with Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Joan of Arc, Saint Matthew, Saint Anne, Saint Francis, Your Guardian Angel, all the Holy Angels, and all the Holy Saints.
