I have something very sweet and encouraging to share today!
Have you ever prayed for something and then sat and waited..and waited..and waited…and then waited some more?
I know I have, God has the most perfect timing. I’m sure if we could see the big picture then we would understand, but we can’t. Only He knows our days that are destined before us. I often, well always tell Allen that we really don’t have any trials, we are healthy, our boys are healthy, we have a home (well, haha we do). We are blessed!
I have never faced infertility, I do know that it is real. I have seen many struggle with this, it’s really hard to understand. What I am learning about it is that God is in control of it, I don’t understand why some people who get pregnant shouldn’t even be allowed to breed let alone have a baby. While others who could be great parents wait for months and even years before being blessed with a baby. There are some things we just won’t be able to make sense if this side of heaven.
However, the story I want to share is that you NEVER give up! You keep praying, you keep pressing into God when you don’t understand. Because, He is the one who does understand what you are going through, He sees you! He knows you, He knows your heart and He knows when you will get your answered prayer. You will always get your answered prayer, sometimes it is wait.
And so, for 7 years it has been wait for my family. God knew the perfect timing of great grand baby #5 and #6! He knew all along that 2017 would be a year of great joy, what if we would have known that, would we have taken every step needed to get here to this point? Would we have put all of our trust in Him when we had no where else to turn? I obviously can’t answer that, but what I can answer is this: I serve a God that is a God of joy! A God that wants to bestow every blessing on my family that is available to us! A God that wants the absolute best for me and the ones I love! I also, know that God is crazy about me!
Do you believe that to be true for you?
God made you, the Bible says He knit you together! He knows the desires of your heart, don’t give up! Never, ever stop praying! Don’t give into fear, smash fear out and walk in the light of Jesus Christ!
