We have been waiting one year, six months, two weeks, and six days and we will continue to wait as long as God wants us to. *feet firmly planted, arms crossed, determined facial expression*
Determination is the word of the week. I am determined to accept this season of waiting in our lives as a gift. I am determined to focus on God’s love and provision. I am determined to use this time, before our child comes home, to prepare to be the best mom I can be. I am determined to enjoy my husband, our home, and our very blessed lives. I am determined to NOT focus on what “I don’t have”.
A wonderful hot steaming cup of green tea. It’s finally looking a little bit more like fall here in Southern CA and we’re actually getting some rain! My hands are slightly cold as I type this post. I think wrapping them around a hot cup of tea will be next on my to-do list.
Thoughts about our child:
We will wait for God to bring you home, and when He does, we will shout it from the rooftops and throw a huge party!
Thoughts about our expectant mom:
What challenges are you facing? What do you look forward to? What are your hopes and goals? I want you to know we pray for you.
This week God:
Reminded us how important prayer is. Just because our prayer isn’t answered on our time schedule, doesn’t mean it isn’t being heard. We need to continue to pray. We need to pray big! Yes we want a child, but how about twins?! Yes we want a child soon. But how about by Christmas!? I want to give God complete authority to totally blow us away with an amazing answer to prayer. I don’t want my own imagination to limit my expectations of what God is capable of. We will praise Him!
“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:13-14
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
