I am always amazed as I read the kids devotion to them (which unfortunately I don’t always do a regular basis) and how often more times than not, it is such a fitting devotion for me, too.
This morning it was entitled “Good Things” & it talked about how just like parents, we give our children things that they NEED, even if it is not things that they WANT, our heavenly Father does the same for us. We can (& should) pray & ask God for our needs & our wants.
He is teaching me to trust Him even if our needs & wants are not the same. We prayed for 62 days that we would be able to keep Lulu here with us, we prayed that she would be the miracle baby that would teach her medical care-givers about Jesus.
And although I didn’t get what I “wanted”, I DO believe that His plan was (& still is) greater than mine & that the “needs” of my life will be fulfilled by Him.
Matthew 7:11 says “Surely your heavenly Father will give good things to those who ask Him”, so continue to ask Him.
We were given a very good gift indeed. He could have chosen any other family to give Lulu to, but we are blessed to call ourselves her daddy, her mama, her brothers, her sister & her family.
