I’m a bit of a mess today: tired eyes, dirty dishes, a crying baby, and a busy schedule, but I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness today. I finally got a moment to sit and hang out with Papa, and I’m overwhelmed by these lines from Goodness by Bethel Music. “All my life You have been faithful. All my life You have been so, so good. With every breath that I am able I will sing of the goodness of God.” It’s been four years. Four whole years since I said YES to adoption and jumped head first into a pretty crazy situation: 21 years old, single, jobless, apartment hunting, and clueless. But, I said yes. And God showed up. He showed up for those parenting lessons I desperately needed. He showed up in jobs and financial help. He showed up on those tearful nights when I didn’t feel fit to parent a 16 year old. He showed up. It hasn’t all been butterflies and roses, but He has been so, so good. The circumstances of your life do not dictate the nature of God, and I am overwhelmed by this today. I’d give anything for Him because He’s worth it, blessings or no blessings. His presence, His person, His character, those things are worth it. He’s. Worth. It. So, I will sing, or write, or type, or scream of the goodness of God. Message me if you want to know more about Jesus or His goodness or my life story or anything. ❤️
