Good, Great, Generous (REPEAT)

Hey all!!

Hope you are all starting your new year off well!

Here's a little known fact about me - I have an unhealthy "fear of the unknown." Now, let me tell you, this fear can creep up on me at any given point... and it can be downright horrible at times.

Fortunately, but unfortunately, the hubs and I have been registering for our baby stuff over the past couple of days. Unfortunately? least for me. You see, when I look at the price tags on all of this stuff that everyone says you "need" to rear a child successfully, my mind goes haywire. I start to wonder how in the world this stuff is (A) going to fit into our house, and (B) fit into our budget! And if I dwell on it long enough, I start to choke on my fear of the unknown.

Maybe you're going through a similar situation - one where you have no control and no clue how your going to make it through. Maybe you have already been through something like this. Or... maybe you have no idea what I'm even talking about. Either way, when you start to have that sinking feeling of "We're not going to make it.", just do what I do and repeat these words:

God is good.
God is great.
God is generous.

God is good: He is - His character is good. He is not out to get us, forget about us, or make us suffer. He is good, and He can be no other way. 

God is great: He is all powerful. He holds the whole world in His hands, and NOTHING is outside of His control. He truly is great.

God is generous: He desires to bless His children. Now, remember this: Generosity doesn't always mean finances. So, think of the other ways He has provided for you (i.e. family, health, friendships, His love). He gave us eternal salvation for Pete's sake! And scripture tells us that He will never leave us or forsake us. His generosity cannot be outdone.

Remember... Good, Great, Generous, REPEAT.

God is good.
God is great.
God is generous.

Love you guys & I'm always here for you!
