Through all my last rambling I finally read what I was hoping to say
We have plenty of examples in this world of poor things being used for good purposes. God can make any indifferent thing, as well as evil itself, an instrument for good; but I submit that to do this is the business of God and not of any human being. –Flannery O’Connor quoted in Engaging God’s World: A Christian Vision of Faith, Learning, and Living by Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
Thanks for reading. Blessings!
