And we know, as Rom. 8:28 reminds us, that "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
Now, the question to ask yourself is this: who decides what's good.
Too often we pridefully put ourselves in the place of God, thinking that from our human perspective we could possibly differentiate the good from bad. All of God's providence is good. Even that which brings us sorrow. Even that which brings us pain.
So we say providence is a two-edged sword. It cuts both ways bringing both the good and the evil (differently, to be sure, but bringing them nonetheless). If we deny either, we deny providence. If we deny providence, we deny God. John H. Gerstner
Now that I've got that off my chest, I can tell you some good news: the baby is not affected by the platelet disorder. I'm thrilled to not have to worry about months of long treatments and to be able to plan for another natural delivery. I'm sure my insurance company is thrilled (the treatments for NAIT are massively expensive)! It's nice when God's providence coincides with our desires. The trick is learning to praise Him in all things.
Soli Deo Gloria.
