Joy & Pain
Two years ago, my sweet girl left this world. The Lord gave her to us, and her BIG purpose was filled in a short two and a half years.
The “whys” will never be answered on this side of Heaven, and that’s okay. His promises are enough.
The days still ache and can feel heavy, but there’s so much joy in our family, in her memory, and the love we have for her.
We live with joy and pain. We love and hurt in the same breath. We laugh and cry. We accept and we question.
We live in a paradoxical world that doesn’t make sense, but it is our reality.
And that’s okay. It’s okay because we know this is God’s plan, as hard as it is, we know the Bible tells us that His plan is the best for our lives.
I don’t know how having my sweet girl ripped from our life is the best thing for us. I don’t. It doesn’t make sense. My earthly heart and mind disagree, but it is well with my soul.
However, I do know His word tells us to keep our eyes on things above. Not what this world holds.
We are disciples first. To further His kingdom.
No matter the pain, no matter the obstacle, no matter if it’s for a season or a lifetime, He’s working all things together for good. Romans 8:28.
My God is a BIG God. He’s still working. We know it.
