There are seasons in life where you begin to wonder what lesson it is that God wants to bring to you. In those times, you’re given a choice. To embrace the trial or to miss the opportunity that it presents.
For the last several weeks, my body has been giving me all the signs that our precious son desires to be born. Each day has brought more discomfort to my body, yet his birth continues to be delayed. We have literally packed up the kids and our belongings four times now only to be sent home in more discomfort than before.
I really believed that yesterday was going to be “the day”. However, he is not positioned correctly at this point and time, so now we wait one more long week for the “induction date” that we have scheduled on June 21st.
I feel as though life has been on “hold” for the last few weeks and my mind has great difficulty of thinking about anything other than having and holding our sweet boy. I’m not sure what all God is trying to teach me right now.
My great friend Kristen reminded yesterday that God wants to be for me something that He could never be for me at any other time in my life.
So today, as I breathe through my Braxton Hicks contractions and can barely stand, I ask you Lord to show me who you are for me right now. What is it that I can’t experience with you at any other time in my life? Will you show me? I pray that I experience the fullness of what it is.
John 14:26 – But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
