14.12.17

Sure and steady

When I was pregnant with Ellis, a friend of mine passed me a five page document of Scriptures pertaining to pregnancy and childbirth -encouragement, promises, that sort of thing.  Not a day goes by that I don't look through it. The pages are marked all over, the staples coming out, but it is one of my favorite things.  I've found myself looking through it and feeling sentimental about some of the verses; oh, remember that spacious place (Ps 18:19)? And how many times I prayed for the Lord to direct our steps (Ps 66:14).  But more often than not, I find myself reaching for it's pages frantically - God, I need a word now, fast, before I go crazy!  It helps me remember that the God who gave me peace and strength while giving birth to my babies still gives it to me today.  God is present not just in the big moments but all the little ones too.  His promises are as steady as they are sure.
