God is good...

Caleb and I haven't been able to have children ('s out).  We've prayed, seen Dr's, dieted, the whole 9 yards and God in His goodness has decided not to send us any.  Yes, God is good no matter what His decision is for our lives.

Caleb reminds me that it's not a diet (although they make you feel better!), a Dr. or anything else that decides whether or not we have children, it is ultimately God's decision.  He opens and closes the womb.

I waited until I was 28 to get married - it was a choice well worth the wait.  I see God's amazing goodness daily in giving me Caleb.  Let me say though...the wait wasn't easy.  I know during the waiting time God showed Himself to me in amazing ways that I would have NEVER experienced without the waiting.  It seems to me the longer the wait, the greater the reward.  I'm not sure what God's waiting plan for children is, but whatever it is, I know it's good!  Even if He decides we aren't to have any.

My sister posted something on her blog about giving thanks.  It really hit home as to what it's all about.

So the final thoughts for this morning is: I'm thankful for where I am, I'm thankful for what God is doing.  I'm thankful for my husband, family, and friends.  God is good - no matter what.


  1. Yes - God is good. And, yes, thankfulness in the face of waiting-and-not-knowing is one of the hardest things ever. And, yes, God gives rich blessings, with new mercies every morning.

  2. Sometimes He doesn't choose to give. Sometimes He gives and then He chooses to take away. I don't understand it, but I *know* He's good. I love you, friend.

  3. Thanks for sharing, Heather. You're a blessing.

  4. Heather, I so appreciate your candidness and the testimony you are! May the Lord continue to use you to encourage and exhort the saints!
