God is Faithful

      God is Faithful

    

    I had a rough night last night.  My husband is gone for a conference.  He left Thursday and won’t get back until late Monday night so it’s mommy home alone with the 8 kids and animals.  Normally it’s not bad but last night I had a little one who was sick.  My littlest one, actually was up sick until 2 am.  Anyone knows with kids that it’s no fun to have a sick child but when that sick child is only 14 months old it’s especially hard as they don’t understand.  The good news is she’s up and going having tons of fun this morning.  Mommy on the other hand is a big draggy, lol.  To top that off last night I got a bit of news that has upped my penchant for worrying.

    I got out my devotional this morning and was reading and was struck by a verse that they were talking about.  The lesson today was about how Faithful God is, God is faithful. 

Deuteronomy 4:31(KJV)
          “( ) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of they fathers which he sware unto them.” 

God is there.  God is faithful.  God cares and He is watching us.  He is not going to give us more than we can handle with Him.  That’s the key, making sure we go to Him with our worry and our problems and not try to carry them and handle them on our own.  I know that I sometimes don’t run to God as fast as I should with my problems.  I try to handle them on my own and get consumed with worry and try to work out my own problems.  We just have to trust in Him and put everything we have in His care trusting that He knows what is best for us and will never leave or forsake us.

My devotional ended with this quote that I really liked and wanted to share.

God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are
infinitely wise.

The picture of the roses are actually of my rose bush this past summer.  I LOVE roses!  God is faithful.  Look at the flowers and the animals around you for reassurance.

I took my kids to the zoo on Thursday and we had a great time.  Who knew it could be over 60 degrees in the beginning of January in MO!  Anyway we had a great time but one site we saw made me stop and go wow.  God is good.  I will post the picture here for you guys to see, but the sight just made me stop and I had to make myself move on to keep up with the kids.  I was hit by the fact that God was telling me to just be.  To just know that He is God and He is watching out for me and my family.  It was a poignant reminder that God is God.

Does anyone else ever have these moments?  Where you are struggling with something and questioning what God’s will is or what you should do?  We are the parents of 8 children, only four of which are biological, two we’ve adopted and we have guardianship of two.  One of the oldest who has lived with us for over half of her life may have to leave us and live with her biological father who she really doesn’t know.  She has several issues that need lots of love and attention, and I find my heart breaking over this.  I needed this “God moment”.  This just goes to show He knows what we need and He will give it to us and let us know He is still there.
