For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Romans 11:36
In the big picture, He uses every situation for our good and His glory. Since everything (everything!) is from Him, and through Him and to Him...that's really all I need to know! As a good friend told me recently, "Nothing takes God by surprise". My Father knows exactly where my boat is... because His hands are underneath it!
