- Last year I was pregnant with William.This year I have two beautiful daughters.The year has been difficult. I have faced many trials emotionallyand spiritually, but He drew me in.He kept me from being overwhelmedin the midst of the largest storm of my life.He breathed for me on the nightwe lost William and He whispered "I'm here" all along the way.He knew that two little girls wouldneed my love and our home.I didn'tHe knew all along.As I talked with a dear friend who has a broken heartI told her that He knows.
Trust HimBelieve in Him more when your faith is less.
Whisper His promisesSing His songsWrite a Thankful listandBe ThankfulI know that sounds easy enoughbut in the storm it's hard to bethankful for rain when you feel like your drowning in it.Trials will come to all of God's childrenIt's not because you didn't "pray enough" or "trust enough".So many people have the attitude that God lovesthem more because He blesses them with more children or more moneyand that is simply not the truth.I remember not long after William diedI heard someone say to someone else "God must really love you becauseit's so easy for you to get pregnant, He blesses you with children so you must be blessed."I cried because I thought " God loves me! How can they say that?"Does He love you more and me less because William died or because I can't get pregnant?of course notThere are Christians that pray so hard for a babyand yet God says no because He can be glorified more by not giving them a baby.We have to be so careful in our speech because just because God gives you children or money orgreat health it's because of His providence for you right now.Give Him glory not yourself.William died not because God was trying to teach me a lessonor because He loved someone more and didn't want to put them through the pain.it was because He could be Glorified More
through William's death.In His Providence he allowed the girls tobe apart of our family, not because He loved us more butbecause He would be Glorified more with them here.Some of us may haveprodigals ,cancera husband who just doesn't get it, no money no friends a broken heart. A hard life
We need to make sure that we give God glory during
all times good and bad.
Are all of our days not numbered and laid out by our Father?
He could change it all if He wanted to.
We should rest in His will for our life.
This Thanksgiving season I can say
I'm thankful that the Lord took William
on to heaven.
He is not just a part of my past
but now he is a part of my
future as well.
So if something good happens in your life say
To God be the glory
When something bad happens say
To God be the glory
Give all praise and glory to our Father
in heaven.....and Glorify His name
