I wanted to share with you all about a dream I had a couple nights ago.
There is very little of this dream that I do remember, but one thing stood out to me and the moment I woke up, I knew I had to hold on to it.
All I remember is that a woman very close to us (not sure who it was) but she was extremely distraught for us and getting quite angry at how unfair our situation was. It seemed to even shake her own faith a bit. We felt so special that she would feel so deeply on our behalf, but I just remember that in her misery, I got her attention and said 5 simple words.
“But God is still good”
Oh how I desire a faith like that. I can’t tell you how I have struggled this past month and a half. There is a constant sorrow as I count each week pass us by. What should have been my 10 week prenatal doctor appointment, became my post miscarriage follow up. Despair lurks around every thought waiting for a vulnerable moment to pounce and I just want to scream “BUT GOD IS STILL GOOD!” even though my broken heart doesn’t necessarily feel it….
I am thankful God gave me this snippet of a dream to remind me of truth. I know He is healing us, slowly but surely, and I know He is faithful to complete the good work He has begun.
Life may not be turning out how you had dreamed as a child, or how you had planned as a young adult, but in all circumstances (from the beautifully rich to the hopelessly painful) hold on to this simple phrase for dear life and know that God is still good! Maybe this song can offer you some encouragement today.
