I am selfish. I admit it. I want to have a baby. For me, conceiving a child hasn’t been a reality so far. So we wait to be picked by an expectant mother who wants to place her baby for adoption. Some days the wait feels long.
Today someone’s simple comment of having a lot of kids just cut me to the core. It started off a chain reaction that made me anxious and upset. The person’s comment had nothing to do with me. It wasn’t aimed at me, it just reminded me of how badly I want to have another child. I wish my son had a brother or sister to play with and love.
It is too easy to be overcome with emotions and forget that the Lord is in control.
He calls me to trust in Him. His plans for me and our family are good. I know this and when the emotions start to bubble up and try to grab control, I have to hold on to His promises.
So my words to you today are don’t become overwhelmed by what you cannot control but lift it up to the One who has control.
Trust in the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever.
