Hope During Sorrow
No matter what God chooses to send our way, whether prolonged heartache or our heart's desire, we have to trust Him and believe that He is good and in control. I wish I could change my friend's situation, just like I wished I could change mine last August, but that isn't how God works. He knows what we need to grow in holiness, and what path will bring His name the most glory. So here, as I joyfully anticipate the arrival of my baby, I remember that time at Chik-Fil-A when I had to fight for hope in the midst of sorrow, and how glad I am that I did.
