Because it happens all the time.
Just when we think a particular situation is bleak, God sends a ray of light, revealing once again how His divine and loving purpose ultimately prevails.
NO POWER, NO WEAPON, NO ERROR, NO SIN, will be able to overshadow or overcome the loving purpose of our God.
This brings courage, does it not?
Even if it does take us by surprise, because we forgot about how it always happens -- God's faithfulness brings hope...hope to carry on.
This week our family received a fresh understanding of the power of prayer and the enduring power of His love. And He reminded me of a simple truth of his creation: love does not divide, it multiplies.
