I was in the hospital hoping beyond hope for a good outcome.
It was the end of one journey - of daily casting my fears on the Lord.
And the beginning on a new journey - one of daily relying on the Lord for strength.
Seven years ago today, we welcomed our son Joshua into the world. I thought my heart would explode with joy.
You see, Joshua was my 9th pregnancy. My second delivery. And my first child.
And while I've learned many (many) things since having Josh and his brothers, the lessons I learned during this struggle have stayed with me:
- God is faithful.
- God is not scared by my anger at Him. He's a big God. He can handle it.
- God is always with me, even when I don't feel him.
- He loves me with an overwhelming love, despite my past.
I am blessed beyond measure.
