On an internet site called “Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life,” This was a quote for the day: “…it is quite possible that things will turn out far better than we could ever imagine..” In spite of the chaotic world around us, there is promise of a future full of hope. Ilia Delio writes,”We emerge out of this long, cosmic process we call evolution. We are created for love, and that’s what keeps us pulling us forward.”. In the Letter to the Romans, Paul tells us about the plan: “With all wisdom and understanding, God has made known to us the mystery of his will according to God’s good pleasure in Christ, that is to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. It is clear that God’s evolutionary plan for us is for our good and not for woe. Yes, things can turn out far better than we could imagine.
