All Things Work Together for Good for Those Who Love God and Are Called According to His Purpose Romans 8:28 -- Really Lord....ALL Things?

Two years ago on Christmas morning the members of our church arrived to see the church burned to the ground. The timing made the loss even more poignant. This was good? We know these members to be faithful believers. Seems like they did their part of the deal.
But it now looks like there was a bigger plan than our own understanding.
Yesterday -- almost two years after the fire we met in the new church.
The way this group of people have addressed this loss has been a witness to me.
They have sacrificed time, money, and the indulgence of their own agendas to prove that they take the Bible at it's word.
Who believes like that anymore in this wishy washy no absolutes world?
Evidently they do and I feel stronger when I sit under the roof with grounded people like them.
"Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding but in all of your ways acknowlege Him and He will dirrect your paths" Proverbs 3:5,6
If you are like me I wish the Spirit of Christmas could last all year long. I think it will at Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church.
