We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
I’ve had a rough day. I’m better now. Only because of this verse.
So… health insurance is a confusing thing to deal with. I was under the impression that Lucy would be covered under my insurance for 30 days. Well… with my *awesome* insurance, that’s only true if I’m actually going to add her to my insurance. Well, I’ll just pay the balance. The balance? Over 2 grand. Ok… so I won’t just pay the balance.
NEWS FLASH! Having babies is expensive.
So… Lucy gets put on my insurance. At least til I can find her some cheaper insurance.
THEN… With all of that going on.. I have a crying baby who is hungry or thinks she is, but won’t eat. Then when she’s actually hungry I can’t find my little adapter that allows her to eat.
SERIOUSLY? I took it and put it on her changing table and then it seriously VANISHED. Vanished. Gone. I checked her trash can, her bassinet, the floor around it, the chair, the kitchen, the laundry room, her laundry basket, the floor in the living room, the couch, the fridge, the bathrooms, the bed, her bed, her room, her closet (I don’t know, you never know..) EVERYWHERE.
Wes comes home after I’ve had an insurance-is-stupid-and-where-is-the-shield-holy-crap-she’s-really-crying-now-is-that-bill-due-too? freak out moment. I ask him to help me look for it. Where was it?
IN HER SHIRT. Tucked away nicely behind her head.
So what have I done since all this? Calmed down for one. Also, I’ve realized, that this all works for good for me, because I love Him.
He makes all this stuff seem so small. He helps me break all this down into little pieces so I can manage them all. He cares about me… and He knows that I can get a little overwhelmed. I did today. And He cares enough to remind me of this verse and to remind me that it will all work out, and it will all work for good.
Thank you Jesus for reminding me.
