Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

You are Good

I sat tonight, rocking my sweet baby who smelled like lavender, thanking God for her and the miracle of her life.  As I was praying, I found myself wondering why He doesn't always save babies.  Why can't every baby be a living miracle?  I know so many mommas who are suffering because of the death of their babies.  I don't have any answers, but I do know that He is good.  Even in our suffering, He is good.  In our joy, He is good.  In our darkest days and on the most glorious days, He is still good. 

I heard this song "You are Good" on my Sing Over Me CD, and it really ministered to me in my questions.  Here are the words:

When the sun starts to rise
And I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day
With each stone that I lay
You are good, so good

With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
When the moon climbs high
Before each kiss goodnight
You are good

When the road starts to turn
Around each bend I've learned
You are good, so good
And when somebody's hand
Holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good

With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
Cause it's more than enough
Just to know I am loved
And You are good

So how can I thank You
What can I bring
What can these poor hands
Lay at the feet of a King
I'll sing You a love song
It's all that I have
To tell You I'm grateful
For holding my life in Your hands

When it's dark and it's cold
And I can't feel my soul
You are so good
When the world is gone gray
And the rain's here to stay
You are still good

So with every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
And the storm my swell
Even then it's well and You are good
