No matter what happens, I know it is all in God’s wonderful master plan!
Today, as I spend yet another gorgeous day sitting beside Bethany on the couch keeping her safe from the seizures that plague her, I lament that her ability to enjoy the fleeting summer is being destroyed by these seizures.
I also feel guilty because I would rather be enjoying the outdoors while the weather is still warm and sunny, but instead I am stuck right beside her, a fellow couch potato.
Bethany just hasn’t been able to, nor has she even wanted to “go beach” which is normally her absolute favorite place in the whole world to be!
Bethany talked about and looked forward to going to the beach all winter!
We actually drove up there, mid winter, to show her that the lake was still covered in ice and snow!
And now that it’s finally beach weather, the seizures are robbing her of yet another chance to enjoy life.
I was reading, “The Masterpiece of His Plan”, by Kim Meeder the other day.
It reminded me that God isn’t finished yet!
I may never know or understand why God has chosen a life of pain, suffering, and illness for my precious child, but as difficult as it is, I have chosen to believe that somehow it is all part of the wonderful master plan that He has for her life!
My daughter’s life is a masterpiece in progress.
Every life is a masterpiece in progress!
I need to remember to trust God and have faith in His master plan, complete with all the heartache, pain, and suffering.
If I can do that, then I just might begin to understand and comprehend the beautiful masterpiece of my daughter’s life!
Today I am thankful that God does indeed have a master plan and that every life is one of His masterpieces!
You might also enjoy reading about another part of God’s master plan that I do not understand, The Continuing Saga of my Broken Humerus.
