I haven’t written in a while… I guess I just didn’t have much to say!
But today, I’m happy, I’m alert and I’m thinking positive thoughts for the future (maybe it’s because I’m on my first day of Christmas vacation?!)…
I am slowly digging up from a very stupid hole I was in these past few months, and I have my husband and BFF to thank for that… Now, to work on it! I pray that I will be able to keep it up, if only with God’s help.
Today, I was trying to catch up with some of my blogs and stumbled into something I wanted to share (if only to be able to reread it in the future)… Thank you to Amanda for posting this… I kind of stole it from her.
It’s something I really needed to read. And something I really need to work on. So, here it is…
Lord, help me to know that You are enough. Take my eyes off of myself. Take my eyes off of the child I desire. Help me to delight myself in You. Mold the desires of my heart to be in line with Your will. I don’t want to need to be a mother more than I need to be your humble, obedient child. I don’t want wanting to have a baby to be a stumbling block between You and me anymore.
Lord, I want to give this desire, this drive, this ache up to You. Help me not to snatch it back as I so often do with the burdens I place in Your hands. Help me to be truly content with Your will and Your timing.
Lord, You know that I still desire a baby – someone to mold, teach, train, shape, guide, and help to grow in You. But until the day You give me that joyous blessing, help me to grow in You. Let me reach out to those around me. Let me witness and minister to the children You place in my path.
Help me to stay submitted to my husband’s will, and to Your will. If we are headed in the wrong direction, change our hearts.
Thank You for lifting my burden. Help me to keep You first. Let me seek Your face daily, and let me know that You are enough!
