Day 7 Joseph's Coat

When you are going through hardships its hard to understand the purpose of God's will. Listening to the news portray the chaos everywhere around us, thinking about the suffering children in other countries, and the hurt many people endure throughout their lives seems so unfair. Could our God allow this to happen? Does he just look away and say - Well! You deserve it, sinners! Hard to believe he doesn't. He surely never left Joseph. What a remarkable story of God's soveriegnty. I have so many questions to ask God when I get to heaven but for now I'm just trusting him.
Genesis 37: 3-36; 50:18-21
Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God."
(Thank you C. Witsey for the colorful coat)

I have heard from many of the ornament exchangers that this daily devotional The Advent Jesse Tree is really bringing your family closer together and you are very grateful for being a part of the exchange. I am really thankful for all of you too, its something we'll look forward to each year.
