I don't want to sound like I don't still have bad days. There are moments when I see a pregnant lady or a mom and her newborn on TV that I feel like someone knocked the breath out of me because I am reminded for the one-hundreth time that I will probably never have that. And sometimes I want to scream when I find out that one more person is pregnant. (I'm waiting for Betty White to announce that she's pregnant...) But I'm getting used to my new reality, and it's getting easier and easier for me to have a positive outlook as the days go by. Sunday morning, my pastor used Deuteronomy 7:9 in his sermon.
This verse spoke to me. God is God, and because I have a personal relationship with Him and try to keep His commandments, I have a covenant with Him. And that covenant is a covenant of love. I've wanted to be angry with Him, but when I think about how much my husband and parents love me and that God loves me even more than that, I can't be mad with Him. His plan is always way better than any plans I can come up with. I've seen that time and time again. Verses like this remind me of that. And on days I seem to have forgotten, what better way to remember than with a printable, right?
I LOVE free printables! I get so excited when I see them on other people's blogs. I've shared two free printables I created with y'all before. Today, I want to share the above printable with y'all. You may not be going through the same struggles than I am, but everyone has her own struggles to deal with. Struggles are a part of life, and they're the specific reason why this place we inhabit is called earth and not heaven. It never hurts to have a reminder of God's love and the covenant He has with His children.
Feel free to download the image for your own personal use--you may not claim the image as your own, re-sell, or redistribute it. Click on the arrow with the line under it, and the file will download to your computer. And before you print, you may want to do a print preview to make sure the whole image fits in whatever size you choose to print it. (If you have trouble with a certain size, I know that Walmart gives you the option to add a white border around the image if you're printing there. I'm sure there's a way to do that on your home printer too. This can be helpful, especially if you plan on framing the image.) I hope you enjoy it! :)
