What God is saying to me...

Over the years, the many-many years, I have repeatedly asked God "why" having a family cannot be easy for us like it is for so many other people.... Typical question, I know. We all have our "why's".

Recently, however, God has been repeatedly speaking to me about this question in my life. The first verse below God brought to my attention twice, and the second verse, He brought to my attention THREE times. Perhaps this is something He wants me to understand???

Habakkuk 2:3
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

2 Samuel 24:24
But the king replied to Araunah, "No, I insist on paying you for it.
I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God
burnt offerings that
cost me nothing."
So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen
and paid fifty shekels of silver for them.

You know, I am not exactly certain about the first verse, other than to know that God is confirming His promise for me. I don't have a clue about His timetable, but I do know that He keeps His promises, and I can be certain that He will do what He has said.

The second verse, on the other hand, has been particularly poignant for me. I believe that God has been saying to me that I cannot offer my motherhood as a sacrifice to Him if it has cost me nothing...

which begs the question: Am I willing to pay the cost required???

Time... Emotions... Physical procedures... Money... Spiritual lessons...

Dear Lord, whatever the cost, I am willing to pay it. If only to bring You GLORY!

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

CC the desire of your heart to be a mom is powerful and in God's timing it sounds like you are willing and God sees your does not make the wait easier though.

Hi I just stopped over from Miti's at Pieces of Me. I read a few of your past posts and I would love to come back and get to know you more. I feel your longing for children. They are God's greatest blessings in our lives, besides Jesus of course. I would like to pray for you on a regular basis and become a active part of the body of Christ with you standing and watching God bring to pass the desires of your heart. If you are interested, I would love it if you would stop by and meet me and my family too.
God Bless,
Christy Rose

God knows the desires of your heart dear CC. Yes, continually lay it down to Him. His TIMING is DEFINITELY not ours, but is perfect.

I will rejoice when you're holding your child in your arms!

And when His timing comes, you're going to say.."Yup, He was right, it is the perfect time". Been there. Praying for you.

I don't think we will ever understand His timing. Everything will work out according to His plan. I'll be praying for you!
