Psalm 23:1-6 ESV

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

On this, the 23rd day of July, I am reminded of the 23rd Psalm. Z had a fabulous doctor visit today. Absolutely fabulous. God is good, faithful, and true. He is omniscient and omnipresent. The beginning and the end.

However, a year ago I was scared. We stepped through the door He asked us to, but still the doubts crept in. What if Z is really sick? What if we can’t handle it? What if… What if…

God knew. He knew Z was tough. He knew D would be an awesome big brother. He knew B would get a promotion (yay). He knew Z and E would love each other so much. He knew that it was all GOOD before I did.

Thank you God. Thank you for helping us not to say no.

What is God asking you to do today that makes you want to scream no from the rooftops (but His Word says to say yes)?

Also, Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law. We love you!
