A post in Catholic Sistas entitled, “The Deacon’s Wife: Part 2: God Turns All Things Good” reminded me of one of my favorite Bible verses which is Ecclesiastes 3:11: “God makes all things beautiful in His time.” Isn’t that just the perfect verse for this time of confusion and chaos over our Pope’s resignation? I certainly hope you think so.
This verse has been a great comfort to me. It has helped me through the toughest patches of my life and has always served as a reminder that I have a great God who can turn failure to success, pain to praise, and rejection to rejoicing. Whenever I am faced with a situation that is beyond my understanding, I always remind myself of this Bible text and believe that in time, everything will fall into the right place.
In these trying times, let us not so much seek for discernment but instead put our trust in Him and believe that God has His amazing way of making everything beautiful in His own time.
