I would love to think of myself as one who has learned some things in my 7+ years of being a Christian. Why is it then that something stupid happens and I find myself at square one?
The Lord has recently convicted me of my fretting and worrying so. Even getting downright upset with people. How wrong! Everything ultimately is in the Lord's hands. When we get upset about things we are not actually trusting the Lord. And this little sin is one that has grown for me to the point that I have been a bad witness to people. I'm so thankful and feeling refreshed to have given it back to the Lord. That's where I want my life and all the dealings in my life. If something doesn't go the way I would want it to I can still trust the Lord because He knows why He is doing what He is doing!
On a positive note, we are getting so excited for this baby boy to get here! I am so blessed to have my babies at home. One of the things I have always had was a whirlpool tub to labor in. Well, due to circumstances I thought this was not going to work for this labor and was greatly discouraged. Whirlpool tubs can be very expensive. We had some extra money coming to us but it ended up not coming. Well, the Lord provided a tub for us for free. It is such a blessing! Our friends were given a tub that they didn't want. The Lord really does care and He can be trusted. Even if He hadn't provided a tub I can trust that my labor would have been in His hands. I can now say though that my labor will be much more comfortable! I always enjoy the time with the Lord as I labor. What a miraculous event!
So learning is hard for me. I am not out of the woods yet! I always get so impatient with my children around this time. Thankfully the Lord is not leaving me and He is teaching me.
I hope everyone else is learning from the Lord! It's when it's easy that we need to be careful. This walk should not be easy. It's contrary to everything the world teaches so there is much to be learned. Be thankful when you are tried and tested, the Lord is teaching you!
