I've shared on occasion that we desire to have more children. I was pregnant very quickly with my 3 little ones, so the "wait and see" every month can be emotionally draining. Most months, the end of the month comes and goes with disappointment but the reminder of the sweet blessings I already have that I can serve and love on.
While I still have that reminder this month, it's just been harder.
Brian has started a new series on Sunday AM in the book of Samuel. Some of his first studies and conversations we had together concerned Hannah. Her persistence in asking God. Her struggle during her wait. And the incredible emotions that she had, even causing her to not eat.....
But the end of Hannah's story is that God is faithful. He provided Hannah with an amazing son that God used for His glory. And after she gave Samuel to the Lord she was able to bear more children.
I know God is faithful! At anytime God can bless us with another child. Am I willing to be persistent in asking God for the desires of my heart and patient in waiting for Him to bring about the desire in His time with the opportunity to bring Him glory??
** Can I also share something else? I just made another connection!
The last two weeks in the kids' "Bible Time"... we have talked about "faithfulness". Like all Fruit of the Spirit, faithfulness is tied to the character of God. So the kids and I concentrated on God's faithfulness... especially to Moses and the Israelites in the Wilderness.
I wonder if that was more for me??? I mean, really! Seems very coincidental that for the 2 weeks prior to my struggle I have been reading to the kids and memorizing verses with them about God's faithfulness..... the EXACT lesson I would need THIS week.
He truely is faithful!
