Wonderfully made by the Lord...
Dedicated October 30th
What a wonderful journey we have been experiencing.
My pregnancy, delivery, & recovery...
I can truly see the Lord guiding and protecting us throughout.
A few days after learning we were expecting, the message 'Jehovah Jirah' came on my ipod as I was getting ready for church. The last several days had been an up and down of emotions...mostly worrying about money and whether I was really ready to be a mother. That message was exactly what I needed to hear...all about God's plan and how He provides for His children.
It was a turning point for me...I took a stand at that moment and said, 'Lord, I believe that this is all in your plans for us. I know you're with us every step and will provide our needs. I'm going to trust in you.'
From that moment on I didn't allow a negative thought to creep in...I stayed positive and claimed everything well. And I truly believe that God honored that and blessed us with a wonderful pregnancy and delivery...He even provided for us financially. Complete strangers gave us bags of clothing and boxes of new diapers...its just amazing how many different ways He has blessed us.
It wasn't me...or anything that I did...it was accepting His plan for us and His grace.
So thankful for all He has done for us...as well as everything He is doing right now.
