God's Sovereignty

I think it is hard for us as humans to get it into our heads that God is sovereign over everything.  He is Lord over everything which is hard for us to understand. I mean he controls every little part of the world. He knows what will happen tomorrow, what happened yesterday what happened 3 days ago and what would have happened, because He planned it. Its all part of His will. We, who are Christians know the above, and know that hes is in control, yet we seem to forget very easily or something. It's like at one minute it computes and then the next we think we are in control.

Sometimes I wonder, how can we be so dumb and stupid and yet God loves us. That's because of His grace, His amazing grace.

Scriptures to back up what I said:
"And he said unto me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." Revelation 21:6 (ESV)

"For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him." Colossians 1:16 (ESV)

"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!" Romans 11:33 (ESV)

"‘Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you." Jeremiah 32:17 (ESV)

"The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all." Psalm 109:17 (ESV)

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 (ESV)

The Pill

So I totally missed Wednesday Hodgepodge yesterday. I was like off in my own little world. We did not get our internet back on until around 4pm. (It had shut off randomly on Tuesday.) 

Here is something I keep twisting back and forth in my mind:

God created doctors and gives them the knowledge to create medicine including birth control pills.God is in control over everything! He is the one who causes me to become pregnant.

1. God controls whether I become pregnant so even if I am on the pill, he can cause me to have a baby. By being on the pill I am not controlling God because He is sovereign over EVERYTHING.

2. I could go off the pill and If God wanted me to become pregnant I would then too. Whether I was on the pill or not. However, God made women's bodies to have babies.

So, I just cant decide. I know by taking the pill I am doing nothing wrong according to scripture, but because He is the one who causes the pregnancy; I will become pregnant when it is His will whether I am on the pill or not right? (YES) So, then why be on the pill? 

What do you think???
