Today my little girl turns 1! I can hardly believe it’s already been one year already. It feels like just yesterday that we were driving home from the midwifery with her in the backseat for the first time. She has been such a joy to me and her personality makes me giggle all the time.
One year before I had Emma, I had a miscarriage. We weren’t in the greatest financially to be having a baby, but I was determined to follow God on this and trust in Him. Then He decided to take my baby home. It was hard on both my husband and I because we had been so excited, despite the timing.
I was confused and grieved, but I trusted that God had something else in store for us. I learned to lean on Him even more during that time and to trust Him more than I maybe would have if we had had the baby.
We don’t always see the big picture when something goes awry. Instead, most of the time, we get angry or frustrated with God instead of following Him where He is leading us. If we learn to just obey, trust, and lean into Him then we will find that our relationship with Him will grow to new levels and that He will bless us tremendously.
The grass is greener on the other side when that side is with God.
Let me hear from you! What are you thanking God for today?
