I have gone through something this week that has put me through a roller coaster of emotions. Even though it has been a very difficult day - it has made me realize a few things.
1. I have a wonderful husband who is so sweet and supportive. He is one of my biggest blessings.
2. Scott and I have been blessed with a great number of wonderful friends and family. When something bad happens - it is comforting to have people who are there for you. I don't think they realize how much just a simple phone call can mean.
3. It is amazing how God prepares you for things that you have to walk through. For the last few weeks - I have been at conferences and heard sermons that all centered around trusting God. And I have such a peace right now in my situation because I truly am trusting God. He has never forsaked me yet and I know he never will. I also knows that He knows the plans He has for me - plans to give me a hope and future.
This song has been going through my head all day - because for once I feel like I CAN truly praise God even in my suffering - not just when everything is perfect.
Blessed be Your name When the sun's shining down on me When the world's 'all as it should be' Blessed be Your name Blessed be Your name On the road marked with suffering Though there's pain in the offering Blessed be Your name Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise When the darkness closes in, Lord Still I will say Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your name Blessed be the name of the Lord Blessed be Your glorious name
