“All things work together for good to them that love God.”

Just days before Stonewall Jackson died, he had this conversation with his aide-de-camp James Power Smith:

“Many would regard them [his injuries] as a great misfortune. I regard them as one of the blessings of my life.”

Smith replied by quoting one of Jackson’s favorite Scriptures, “All things work together for good to them that love God.” “Yes!” Jackson responded. “That’s it! That’s it!”
– As cited in Robertson [1997:744].
