Hope


The sweetest, most amazing thing in the world is waiting on God to answer prayer.

I'm still waiting.

FYI: This is not a post about how God has come through for me one more time and given me what I've asked for and I want to tell the world about it.....but one day I will post that story. I promise. I know how this thing goes. I have this overwhelming FAITH in Him to provide for me according to His will.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 says, " 'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord, 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.' "

I have no doubt in my mind that God will answer this prayer. And until that happens, I will wait.

Those who know me, know that I'm not the most patient person in the world. I guess a lot of people struggle with this. On Monday of this week, I was OUT of patience. I felt helpless. I have felt this feeling several times in my life, and it's in those times that I have never felt more strongly the amazing love of Christ. I am so thankful.

I originally wrote this post in 2010. I was waiting on 2 very important things from God: the salvation of my husband and the means to stay at home with my daughter. Both of which the Lord answered in a big way! And since then I have seen these desires of my heart fulfilled time and time again. He delights in giving good things to his children. He is a good good father.

My faith has grown tremendously since 2010 and He is still the giver of the best gifts. In this season, I'm coming before Him boldly to ask for yet another very important thing. Several actually. And I have hope in His goodness. Even more so than I did 6 years ago. And He is faithful. Always.

If you don't know his goodness like that, then please send me an email or something. I'd love to chat with you about the hope I have. He has proven himself faithful in my life and I love to tell people about it.

A New Beginning

I attempted a pregnancy blog when I was about 30 weeks, and I managed to only post one time. Don't worry, I've been keeping a journal for Sydney so she will know what my pregnancy was like. I did pretty well writing in the journal during the pregnancy, but the day she was born was really the last time I recorded anything. The 24 hours following her arrival were so terrifying, that it has taken me 3 months just to get up the nerve to sit down and try to "catch her up" on what happened. I will attempt to catch you (friends & family) up right now....
