God is Good

This is something Christians say a lot. Something that's a lot easier to say when everything's going great than it is when life is tough. Something that we have to be able to hold on to and believe even when we don't understand everything that is going on. It's been a tough week here for us. We found out a few days ago that we lost the baby we were expecting. Unless you've been through it, I don't think anyone can quite understand the pain and grief that comes with a loss like this. So many plans, hopes, and dreams taken away in an instant. We're still trying to come to grips with what has happened. We are so thankful for the love and support of our family and friends during this time. Although we can't comprehend why this has happened, we are holding on to the fact that God is in control of our lives and will work all things for good and we are thankful that He will carry us through this difficult time.

That is so true -- we don't always understand why things happen the way they do. When I think back to my own similar situation some years ago, and I know how Abbie would have loved to have had a little brother or sister close to her age to play with, it doesn't always make sense to me. But as a pastor's wife once said, "we can always trust His heart for us."
His heart is for you and He will see you through and be your strength. Cling to Him and to each other.
