Spinning Things Right Around

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“…the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you,
because the Lord your God loves you.”
Deuteronomy 23:5b NKJV
Did you know God can take those things
That others meant to harm us
And turn them into blessings as
He puts His arm around us?
He’ll use the heartache and the pain
To help us learn and grow,
While drawing us still closer, all
Because He loves us so.
Yes, even in the hardest times,
When we are worn and pressed,
He’ll spin things right around and make them
Work out for the best.
So let’s not grow discouraged by
The hard things we must face.
But see them as a way to grow
In God’s amazing grace.
“And we know that all things work together for good
to those who love God, to those who are the called
according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28 NKJV
