Really God?

January 13, 2010 at 4:51 PM Leave a comment

God has really been speaking to me lately through my online devotional “Girlfriends in God.” Today’s truth: Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” How interesting of a truth to be shared with me right now. Exactly a week after Hailey’s passing and after learning that my dad is really sick. Rejoice when it seems like my life is being ripped apart? When it seems like the people I love the most are suffering or being taken from me? Rejoice God?? What timing for me to be reminded of this Biblical truth. But what timing it is! God is perfect in his ways and his timing. And while one may wonder how can I possibly praise God and rejoice in Him at a time like this… well God knows that’s exactly what I need to do.

So today will be a day of mourning Hailey – but I will listen to what God needs me to hear – and today will be a day rejoicing. What could I possibly rejoice over? I will rejoice in the 39 weeks Hailey spent in my womb and the 36 AMAZING days God gave me on Earth to spend with Hailey. I will rejoice in God’s perfection and love and peace and his sovereignty.
