I spent a majority of Mother’s Day evening in tears.
Do I doubt God? Do I doubt Jonah Elizabeth’s introduction into our little family?
Not one little bit.
But the enemy is trying – hard.
I am a redeemed child of the Most High God. He died a criminal’s death to forgive me for every single sin that I have committed. He protects me and He loves me – unconditionally.
Does that sound like someone who would constantly remind you of all your failures and regrets and hurts?
Does that sound like someone who would repeatedly say you aren’t good enough?
I used to think God was punishing me by not giving us a child – but that isn’t how He operates. That voice of doubt and fear and sadness and regret – That isn’t God!
When those thoughts pop into your mind, push them away and have FAITH in the God who loves you as the child of His you are. He doesn’t break His promises, and He doesn’t throw things back in your face.
Little Jonah will be here just as He promised. And the only tears I have to cry are those of joy from being loved by the King and Creator of the Universe.
Keep the faith – and remember the character of our Creator!
