Romans 8:28 NIV
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Check that smile,
You can never imagine,
That he’s seen a bad day,
Watch him work,
Listen to him talk,
You’d only believe,
That his life
Is a culmination of amazing events.

Would you believe,
That he went to bed hungry?
That his girlfriend broke up with him?
That his business is struggling?
His smile is a slice of sunshine,
His words give you a ray of hope,
Though to bystanders,
His walls are crumbling down.

He doesn’t whine,
He doesn’t complain,
Doesn’t expect the worst of life,
Because he walks by faith
He doesn’t concentrate
On the small glitch today
Because he knows it’ll make him stronger
In the end

His focus is not in the now
He chooses to be happy,
Not because of circumstances,
But by choice.
He chooses to have peace now
Because everything in his life is for good
It may not be for him,
But for someone else
Down the road of life.
