I write this fired up and invigorated by God’s word this morning…
“Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:5-7 ESV
We are 27 weeks and 2 days along and right now every day counts even more than it did before! Why you ask? Well because this past Sunday evening my water broke but I have yet to go into labor. So it’s all just a waiting game!
Not to worry because Kobi is doing great she continues to grow stronger every day and kicks a whole bunch and has the hiccups all the time (which is great for lung development) and is even breathing on her own plus The Lord is at hand and that’s the best part of all!!
When Bill and I came to the hospital we were just taking precautions as we thought I may have just peed my pants so we weren’t overly worried or stressed and didn’t speed down the highway and even packed a semblance of an overnight bag just in case Kobi was to make her debut… But alas we are still here waiting on Kobi and there is no stress, very little anxiety (I mean we are still human), and tons and tons of peace because we know that The Lord is at hand!!
I know that The Lord is here with me, William and Kobi as well as each of our doctors and nurses and all of those that have been checking in, praying and visiting and those who will do these things upon reading this!! He has not left my side for one moment;not one! There hasn’t been a doubt in my mind that this child that I am carrying is the Lord’s and she’s a miracle and has a great big mighty call on her life!
If the Lord is at hand meaning He is right here with me I don’t really see a need to be anxious but instead I find myself being thankful and full of praise and honor to my King and daddy God and that brings a peace that surpasses all understanding and it also guards this mommas’s heart!!
Y’all (yes I said y’all) God is good and faithful and so worthy to be praised! He is in the miracle working business and He isn’t looking to quit anytime soon!! If y’all need a touch, a word, a peace, a joy, a hope, heck if y’all need a cracker to rid hunger He can do it and will do it! It may not look the way you thought it should or even come from who you thought it would come from but call out to Him and He will answer because His love for you is real!!
Be encouraged and join me in thanking the Lord for his faithfulness because the joy I have right now runs deep!!
Many blessings to you all
