Sometimes it's easy for me to forget that Jesus loves Emily more than I do.
Especially when things are hard and bad things are happening to her that I don't understand or can't explain. When those things happen it's easy for me to lose focus and think of the issue/issues at hand. And that is where the mistake is made.
When I focus on what is happening to Emily I only see what is happening in that moment and I don't see the big picture. God does.
God sees the bigger picture and God knows the end and the outcome of Emily's battle with Infantile Spasms. He also loves Emily with a love that I will never fully know or understand this side of Heaven.
You must remember that. When you see your child suffering and you can't explain why they are going through what they are going through you have to remember how much God loves them. The love you have for your child is NOTHING compared to how much God loves them!!
That is how you know what you are going through will be okay in the end. That is how you know that God is in control and His wisdom and love is beyond anything we could ever know or understand.
And that is something you can always fall back on!
