Perfect Timing

Isn't God's timing always perfect...it's so hard to see when you are going through the storm but once it's over you look back and can just say "wow." I really wanted to not just "get through" this pregnancy. I knew I (and Mark) would have fears, concerns, and many other feelings this time. I also knew we would experiences different feelings at different times. I wanted to enjoy being pregnant. I LOVED it last time. Being pregnant was such an easy thing for me....well, that was last time. This time is different for many reasons. There are always 2 sides. I can't wait for baby girl to be here but yet I want my time with Wyatt as an "only" to just slow down. He has really become my little buddy lately. I cry as I type...within weeks he will no longer and EVER again be our only. The tears shed are happy, scared, sad, overwhelmed...all feelings I am sure every mom (and dad) gets as the time gets closer to expand their family. Staying focused on the Lord, remaining in his word, listening (trying anyway) to what he has to say to me every day has been the main thing guiding me through this entire adventure. My mom has really helped me find things to read, sent me verses, devotionals, etc. She recently sent me the "Jesus Calling" app for my phone. It's amazing. It doesn't take the place of my daily devotional (most days;)) but it's a great little read each day. Like I said in the title...it's always perfect timing. It always kinda makes me shiver when I close the app, like really...how did he know I needed that. Ha! 

The past 6 days 3:30am has been my wake up time. Not by choice...I just wake up...then I can't go back to sleep. It's awful! I give myself an hour in bed, laying there...trying to not wake up Mark before I get up and go to the living room couch. I turn on the T.V. and begin watching anything I can find-usually it's the news-I hate the news but it's the only thing on that early. My mind just won't stop. It thinks crazy things. It's so full! I have been trying to use this time to chat with the Lord, just me and him. I have fear and I hate it. I know I am not supposed to be fearful. I don't want to have fear, I don't want to worry about baby girl. I trust the Lord's plan will unfold-his will will be done. I am comforted that I know those things. I believe those things but my mind wanders...
with all that said...
Today Jesus Calling says:
"Relying on your own understanding will weigh you down. Trust in Me absolutely, and I will make your path straight.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." John 14:1
and an old favorite...
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

We are on the home stretch! We will trust in the Lord, enjoy these last days with Buddy being our "only. " We will find joy each day as the Lord's blessings are new every morning!

  1. What a beautiful post and reminder. It hits home because we are also expecting a baby and anticipating how it will change the dynamics of our family. Trying to cherish the last weeks of our alone time with our girls, yet at the same time so very excited to meet the new bundle of sweetness. I've followed your blog for awhile ... and you are very inspiring. You have more courage than most and your faith and following of Jesus has helped me many times. God bless you in the remainder of your pregnancy. He is watching over you and your beautiful daughter. It's going to be "perfect". Have a great weekend.
