In Luke 6:47-49
Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”
What foundation are you currently standing on?
I know that during this time of waiting I need a stronger foundation that I was standing on when it all started! God is always showing me his love through the little things. When we started the new foundation for our house addition my first thought was, I need to have a strong foundation in faith to get through this current season of life. I want to be strong but sometimes I allow the enemy to work his way into my thoughts and mind. Worship music is one of the simplest ways for me to feel connected to God’s Word. The days that I am lacking trust in God’s Word I can listen to a song and just feel him speaking into me. People who really know me know that I struggle with the quiet and stillness of the world. I struggle just sitting and listening to what God is speaking to me without any other noise. One truth I can keep believing is that God doesn’t care if you’re in the deepest valley or the highest mountain during your current season of life, he only cares that you start right where you are!
When we started our infertility journey, I never would have imagined that we would feel so “stuck” years later. COVID threw another wrench into “Our Plans” during this season. God still is showing me during this season that he is GOOD and that he already knows that is next. I still struggle daily with letting the enemy try to steal my joy of Ellie and what amazing light she is to our life! I’m so angry that I can’t give her a sibling that she desperately wishes for. Sometimes I allow that to anger dictate my day.
Our infertility journey feels at a standstill as we go into the holiday season I pray that anyone going through a hard journey feels God’s love and promises. I pray that you can use a foundation on his love to get you through it all.
