Because He has a Better Plan

A quote from my devotional study today:

“Perhaps the extended wait births the story. Those who learn to sit still and wait have something amazing worth telling. God answered my prayer! God did this. Not me! I tried and couldn’t.”

A verse from the Bible that was also listed today:

“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

I’m not claiming that I will be healed.

I do claim that God is working in my life.

Only God can heal me, if He so chooses.

Only God can bring me peace, when He so chooses.

All I can do is give Him the credit for the wonderful things that have happened in regards to growing my family.

I didn’t do ANYTHING to deserve this child. I am not entitled to a child. But look what God did for my family…look what God has done for us.

I can only sing praises to God and remind myself to sit still and listen for Him. I am capable of nothing apart from Him.
