"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God" (Rom. 8:28).
All things "work together." It is a beautiful blending. Many different colors, in themselves raw and unsightly, are required in order to weave the harmonious pattern.
Many separate tones and notes of music, even discords and dissonances, are required to make up the harmonious anthem.
Many separate wheels and joints are required to make the piece of machinery. Take a thread separately, or a note separately, or a wheel or a tooth of a wheel separately, and there may be neither use nor beauty discernible.
But complete the web, combine the notes, put together the separate parts of steel and iron, and you see how perfect and symmetrical is the result. Here is the lesson for faith: "What I do thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter." –Macduff

I need to remember that the anthem created by God is perfect in every way. It is only when I try to alter the tune by resting on favorite notes and skipping over those that are difficult that the music loses its glorious beauty.
I believe I’ll pour a second up of coffee and begin to enjoy today’s perfect melody.
