Let me start of by saying that no I am not pregnant.
Okay now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you a story, about 3 years ago the desire for me to have a baby became big, and I mean BIG. Women were getting pregnant left and right and I felt like God was ignoring my plea to have a baby. I took out my frustration on Jordan, and every night it was a battle that ended me in tears and him upset that I just couldn’t wait.
Months go by and its the same ol’ same ol’. I’m praying for God to give Jordan the desire in his heart to have kids NOW. My prayers eventually started looking like me asking God take the desire of having kids away from me… I was desperate and in pain. One day I was in Target and I came upon an adorable little NB (newborn) onesie, it was red and had “daddy’s little all-star” on it. I fell in love, and being the crazy girl I am, I bought it. I was scared to show Jordan what I had bought, but I still showed him. He thought I was crazy and told me I needed to return it. I refused to take it back, and told him the onesie represented God’s promise to give me the desires of my heart.
I hung that onesie in my closet as a reminder to thank God in advance for the precious little boy he would give us. After a year and a half we finally decided to get off the birth-control and decided to let God bring us a baby in HIS timing. 4 months later (which felt like forever) I was pregnant. Fast forward 5 months into my pregnancy and it’s a boy. We now have two incredibly handsome, healthy and happy boys who are best buds.
A few weeks ago I was in Babies”R”Us and I saw these cute pink shoes, being the crazy girl that I am (like I already mentioned) I bought them. Although our story is a little different now, and I’m in no desire at THIS moment to have a girl. At some time in the future I do want a girl, and these pink shoes bring me right back to that little red onesie. I have these pink shoes in my closet, and every time I look at them I thank God for who He is, and for our little baby girl that will complete our family.
The Bible says that faith without works is dead. This is my work, this is me taking a step of faith and trusting God to do what he does best. I know that if I FIRST delight myself in the Lord, he will THEN give me the desires of my heart.
I want to encourage you today that whatever it is your believing for, take a step of faith and believe in God that no matter what the circumstance is, no matter what may be in the way, that he will give you the desires of your heart. I truly believe God wants to see his children happy. You may not see your miracle overnight, and that’s okay, trust his timing, because he’s always on time.
