In the past few years, Tim and I have gone through a few difficult trials. One that still lingers is not being able to have children. When friends/family announce their wonderful news of expecting, it almost feels like a slap in the face. I used to become bitter after hearing the news, allowing it to eat away at me till I was miserable. But with out fail, a verse from my devotions would remind me how wrong that was. One particular day, Psalm 18:30 was the verse that gave me strength and encouragement. So for all those out there who are struggling to get pregnant, get frustrated when others are pregnant, and sometimes feel a little bitter towards them... I hope this verse gives you the strength to carry on.
Psalm 18:30 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
"His way is perfect!" Why should I be bitter by the fact that I am doing exactly what God wants me to, exactly where God wants me to be? Because of that, I should trust in Him! I'm thankful (like a couple of my other friends have said before) that I'm able to spend so much 1 on 1 time with Tim. We have been able to do things that would not have been possible if we had a baby already.
Thank you Lord for making Your way perfect. Help us to rest in You, knowing that Your plan is much bigger and better than our own.
