"It'll make you feel better."
"It's for your good."
Those are 2 phrases I have caught myself saying to Lil' Hunkie recently. He's been sick for over a week now and when he started running a fever to the doctor we went. The poor little guy has issues with allergies and has to take heart medicine and now an antibiotic for a left ear infection. So getting the medication down him has been one heck of a chore. He threw a fit. I threw a fit. He threw a fit. I broke down and started bawling. And my husband didn't know what was going on!
I was just worn out.
I know and you know medicine can be beneficial. But a 3 year old?
Not so much.
Now I dont' think God ever gets tired. But. How many times have I thrown a fit and declared that I didn't want what was good for me, what was in my best interest? Apparently plenty or God wouldn't have brought this to my attention through a 3 year old! Ouch!
There's a reason we call Him Father. Because He knows what He's doing and has even experienced life and death on earth.
King James Version (KJV)
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Be blessed this weekend!
