TTC Tuesday

Joy

Tuesday

1 THESS

You may or may not have seen this verse posted on our Facebook page this morning. The Holy Spirit has been guiding us to read a selection of devotions from the devotional by John MacArthur called “Drawing Near”, and the devotion for yesterday – which didn’t get read until today… 🙂 led me to the verse above.

It’s amazing how the Lord will direct you if you allow Him.

We have been through ups and downs and trials and tribulations over our lack of a child. This time last year, I didn’t go more than a day or two without crying and sobbing and feeling depressed about not being able to give my sweet husband a baby…This year we are rejoicing in the joy of the Lord.

Baby Jonah already has a blanket and several sweet little outfits at home. As soon as we have finally moved into our new home, we will begin working on her nursery. The Lord has brought us a promise and such happiness in the faith and knowledge of His plans for our little family.

James 1:5

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.

The song below (which you will need to watch within a browser) describes the joy of the Lord and the grace He provides so well: “Exceeding Joy” – Hillsong

    1. Can’t wait to share! 😉 Funny how when we decided to “build our ark” – after your post – and build our nursery, we had no clue how we would decorate it…And then the Holy Spirit gave us our sweet girl’s name and we knew exactly what to do. He is AWESOME!!

      I was looking for Baby Josiah outfits today too… 😉

  1. For those of us single girls waiting for Godly spouses, is there something similar you would recommend? I feel that God gave me a dream about birthing (not adopting) future children but no husband is in sight…

    1. Hi there!

      I would suggest you visit a friend of mine’s blog – specifically for single girls seeking a Godly spouse. Her blog, The Veil of Chastity can be found at http://theveilofchastity.com and you can read a post we wrote about our personal love story in Christ at http://theveilofchastity.com/2014/01/13/where-would-i-be-without-the-veil/ . If you ever want to talk, you can reach out to me via e-mail by visiting the “Contact Us” portion of our blog. 🙂

      In Christ,
      Pier
