Day 5 GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY SITUATION I WILL FACE
A lot of you know that when my (Paige) son was born he was in the NICU for 13 days. He was born with holes in his lungs and he had to be on oxygen and other gasses for the holes to heal. Right after he was born they rushed him out of the room and we weren’t allowed to hold him for the first four days of his life because the stimulation of being held could cause even more holes. He is now a happy and healthy one year old, praise Jesus, but that season was the hardest I had ever walked through. I begged God, please please heal him, please let him get to come home soon, please let him get better. My answer did not immediately come, it took time for him to heal and I had to be patient and trust God.
The question for today is a hard one, it might be one that only God knows but lets talk about it anyway : Why might God work quickly in some situations and slowly in others?
I believe that God wanted to teach me a little patience by allowing me to walk through this season. I also believe that God wanted to teach me how to truly trust Him. There is no feeling like leaving a hospital without your baby, knowing that there is nothing you can do except to pray. When you are at your lowest point, all you can do is look up! No matter what you are going through, you can always trust that God has a plan and God is in control. Even when it’s hard, even when we don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel, keep praying, keep reading His word, and keep trusting in God! He loves you so so much!!
I remain confident of this, I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Yall have a wonderful weekend and we will meet you back here on Monday for WEEK 2!!!
