When Warren and I moved from the farm to the rental house, I have to admit, I didn’t spend time with Jesus like I should. Sure, I would read a devotion from time to time, I would pray daily, go to church, but I was numb. We were facing a lot of changes and honestly I was sad, dare I say, even a little mad. Things still weren’t turning out quite like I thought they would. I was venting to a friend a couple years ago on how I was mad at God and even did not talk to Him very nicely in a emotionally filled prayer, her response was “He can handle it.” Simple as that, and duh, of course He can. Who am I kidding, He knew I was mad before the hateful words left my lips. He wants me to cry out to Him. Which brings me to this blog today. In the wee hours this morning I was sipping coffee with my lap full of devotionals and my Bible. Warren still sleeping, the sun had not even come up yet and I thought to myself, wow have I needed this. The last couple of weeks, I have finally began to, on a regular basis, spend that good quality time with Him. Truly seeking Him. He has shown me in many ways all along that He is there and He hears me. He’s been calling on me since the move. And though I haven’t set aside time like this as I should, He makes Himself known to me. He still seeks me out and gives me those gentle nudges. Not until this past month had I seen an eagle since the move and that had gotten me down. I prayed I would see one, it took some time, but on our way to school one day there was one in the road. Had to put my brakes on, God made sure I saw that one. HAHA! And then this past weekend, I saw another sitting in a tree. Just there, like God saying, I hear you hun. They still amaze me each time I see one. I may not know where God is leading me to but I am trying my best to trust Him with it. Some things do not make sense to me whatsoever but I know He loves me and wants what is best for me even if I don’t quite understand. Gosh, if He takes the time to send an eagle my way, I would say He has a handle on the bigger stuff too. 😉 Bottom line, all I truly need is Him. He sees me, He hears me, He is using all of this to mold me to be more like Him. I am very thankful for His patience and love for me. And if all of this is for just one person to come to know Him, it has been worth it.

Also in a place of not knowing where God is leading me to, but doing my best to trust in him. I know I need to do a better job. Knowing right now might not make much sense, but he knows the bigger picture unlike myself and all the things he needs me to go through before I get there. Also, I’m learning to love the season I’m in right now which is on maternity leave at home with my kiddos right now. Maybe instead of researching all the things, staying so busy all the time, stressing out about things out of my control, he just wants me to slow down and love these kiddos and these moments while they are little. Easier said than done, but I’m going to pray to him to help me do just that.

Yes!!! You are so right. Love the season you (we) are in. We will never get this time back so we need to cherish every moment. These kiddos grow and change so fast. My time w my son has been the best years of my life and I will never regret this time, ever. But I will regret those silly distractions. We aren’t perfect, but you are taking the best step forward in praying and asking Him to help you. Amen amen amen sister! I’m here anytime if you want someone to chat with!💗💗💗😘😘😘
Hi Emily, thanks for sharing, God can handle it. Check out the psalms and see how David prayed and spoke to God. ❤
