I believe one of my FIRST memory verses was Romans 8:28 where Paul reminds his readers that, "all things work together for good for them that love Him and are called according to His purposes." He knows us FAR better than we know ourselves and keeps us present before Him. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God will be sculptured into SOMETHING REAL, SOMETHING, well ... "good!"
And that can only happen when we are stay connected, in some way, to Jesus.
