My sweet little boy arrived 10 days past his due date. It’s no secret that I’m hoping that this little lady arrives sooner rather than later. I’m not complaining about this extra time that I have with my guys, just feeling very ready to meet my daughter. I know she’ll come at the perfect time. I trust the Lord’s timing.
Take for example, that she’s coming “now” and not a year or so ago. That, I believe, was the timing of the Lord. Oh, the grace of the Lord to bring my heart along in the process of motherhood. After trying for a year to get pregnant, the thought of having another baby was no longer at the forefront of my mind. Until, at a very hard time in my life, spiritually the Lord touched my heart and I believe, my body. I was at a conference with some friends and there was a time of healing prayer. When I was asked what I need prayer for, I was going to say, “My eyes” but my wonderful friend beside me beat me to it and said instead, “She want’s a baby!” Her statement was a reminder of the hope in my heart for another baby. And so I just went along with it. As they prayed for me, something began to burn in my belly. That’s the only way I know how to describe it. I had to sit back until I found relief.
I didn’t really revisit this moment with serious thought until I found out I was pregnant the very next month. More specifically, about seven days later. I was still in the midst of a hard time spiritually and “new life” was happening at the very same time. Amazing! I trust the timing and the leadership of the Lord, not only to give us a baby, but to give us a little girl. I can’t wait to meet you my daughter! We have many memories to make and many things to learn together!
