Life throws unexpected curve balls more times than not. In the adoption world we hear these stories daily. Couples who struggle with infertility or a miscarriage. Mothers who didn't anticipate a pregnancy. Couples who have experienced a failed adoption placement. Mothers who say, "if only this was different." There is so much in this life we don't anticipate, but instead find ourselves walking through the journey with many different thoughts and feelings. Right now, our country is experiencing huge life changes. Circumstances are changing hourly. It's in these times we can immediately ask "why" and sit in a state of worry, fear, or even anger. But, what if we began to sit in a state of hope? What if instead of feeding into the worry that's sitting in the air, we look at this as a time to be still remind ourselves who is God? What if instead of running around in the busyness that usually surrounds us, we take joy in the fact that we get to pause and reflect on His goodness? What if instead of hoarding up treasures on this side of heaven we practiced letting go of the idols we've created? What if in the midst of all the unknown we practice hiding scripture in our hearts and say, "and even if, He is still good?" Even if I have found myself without a job for a brief time, He is still good. Even if my day to day life changes, He is still good. Even if everything around me is altered, He is still good. Even if I don't know what my tomorrow holds, He is still good.
