“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16
Late nights and early mornings often leaves me a tad more tired than I am use to being.
But each step of motherhood draws me closer and closer to God. The beauty of this journey is beyond what I can understand.
Each time Grace cries I tell her 'mamma is here'.
Each time she gets a shoot and it hurts I tell her 'I'm sorry baby, it's for your own good'
Each time I have to give her medication I ask of her to 'trust me, I'm doing this to help you'
Even the daily things like making her food, and she has to wait.. I rock her and ask her to be patient, but food is coming.. Mommy would never let you go hungry..
But of course.. Grace is a baby so she does not understand my words.. And she does get impatient, and she doesn't always trust me when I have to give her the medication.
These situations I just wish she knew.. I will do anything to keep her safe.. I am her mother.
And after a long night it slowly hit me..
Is this not what God asks of me?
But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. - Psalm 86:15
God is my father.. He asks that I put my burdens on him and trust him.
He asks that I know that he wants only what is good for me.
And He asks me for patience. Just as Grace might not get her bottle the second she wants it, but it is indeed being made. Just as that does God hear my prayers.. But I need patience.
And greatest of all.. He loves me.. and he just wants me to know that he is my father and he will never abandon me.
This is much easier to remember in all the tough situations in life, and putting all my burdens on God, and not to worry about things seems to be one of my biggest challenges I face daily.
But oh what an amazing feeling it is to know and understand a little bit of the love God has for me. For us!
And every time I look at my daughter I can't help be in awe that he trusted me with one of his beloved daughters. To raise her, to teach her about her heavenly Father... His Grace truly is amazing.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved - Ephesians 2:4-5
On a completely different note.. I did receive my faithbox really fast..... I just have not yet gotten to know all the items of it. I hope to have a review of it finished next week.
