International Day of the Bible

romans8-28kjvToday is the International Day of the Bible, when Christians are encouraged to post their favorite Bible verse on social media with the hashtag #BibleCelebration.

I’ve posted recently about my Bible reading/sharing plan. There are so many wonderful verses that I love.

But my favorite is easy to pick: Romans 8:28: 

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

So many times in my life when something happened that I thought was terrible, such as my stroke at age forty-five, God has turned it around for good. If I hadn’t had the stroke, I would never have sold my business and become a writer. That is a dramatic example, but God has turned so many things to good in my life.

I didn’t realize how significant this verse is to me until I started editing the devotional book I’m working on. While I used a number of Scriptures for the ninety devotionals, Romans 8:28 appears repeatedly.
