His Way is Perfect

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.
