"Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest. Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.  {Psalm 85:10-13}

Oh it is a rainy day, but the birds are singing through the rain! How can they do that? They know that the sun is coming. They rejoice in their creator, and sing His praises whatever the weather. Just like you and I. We can sing, because He remains the same, steadfast, immovable, Holy and Just. There is no one like Him, ever! If you come close to Him, you can hear Him whisper, "I love You."

Praising God for who He is when life is still tough, and it seems as if everyone else's life is running smoothly,  only happens when our eyes remain on Him, and not our circumstances. I read a story lately about a young woman who had married and wanted children so badly. She had a few miscarriages, but instead of turning  away , she embraced a foster child, and gave her everything to him. Every day she poured the love of Jesus into this child even though she knew that he could be given to someone else at any time.

The agency was so happy with how she was able to bring joy to this little boy, that they called constantly to have others placed with them. One day her husband got a call asking if they would take 3 siblings who needed a home. He felt that for some reason, this was a different call than the others, and asked his wife if they could take in these three. She agreed that God had placed this on his heart, and so not even a day later the three children were in their home.  It was hard, but they consistently loved these four with everything in them. Finally they adopted all of them, and life was good.

I think you may know what happened next! The wife became pregnant again, this time, she was full term, and delivered a beautiful little girl. Life can be so funny, not in the ha ha sense, but in the strange sense. Why did these circumstances work out as they did? Only God knows what He was trying to say to them. They passed the test, of loving others, as their own, or maybe they needed to be strengthened. Perhaps these children wouldn't have had such wonderful parents if they didn't come first! The fact that they embraced whatever God gave is a testimony to their devotion to our Lord. I hope this story is a blessing to you today!
