My aunt had this on her Facebook page the other day and it really hit home...
Me: God, can I ask You a question?
Me: Promise You won't get mad God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
Me: My car took forever to start
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm Sorry God
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.
Me: I will trust You.
God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.
God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children...
Life doesn't always turn out the way we want it to...but it (life) turns out JUST THE WAY GOD HAS PLANNED. And in the end that planned life is absolutely perfect!!! (Case in point below)!!!
Three and a half years ago I NEVER could have imagined how happy I would be today. Because three and a half years ago I was sad. I was angry. And I had lots of questions (not just a question). My plan was (obviously) remarkably different than Gods but God knew what He was doing so He continued on with His plan.
He for awhile "ignored" my wants and my desires...until the time was right. If God had changed course and given into my pleas...these two precious gifts would not be here. But tonight I get to kiss these two perfect miracles good-night and tomorrow wake up (once again) to my very blessed life!!! So I will trust God in ALL things...in ALL circumstances...in the good (life) and in the bad (death) because His plan is always better than ours.
"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Love begins before a baby is born...and that love will live forever in our hearts. When you lose a baby, you lose not only the promise of a very special human being, but you lose many beautiful hopes and dreams as well.

We simply do not see the bigger picture, but we choose to believe that there is a bigger picture and that our loss is a part of some wonderful story authored by God himself.
