More Than We Can Imagine

CIMG2024Pleeease tell me it gets easier?!

She paused, as though considering how to break it to me, smiled and said,
It doesn’t really get easier. What we do just changes.

This wasn’t what I wanted to hear.
It was what I needed to hear.

After a couple of pity-party days, my friend’s words served to transfix my perspective.

Inadequacies, failings and regrets were winning the week. Rationalizing served as a survival technique: “Just get through this…  “Life will be easier when…”

Sometimes our efforts fail. Things don’t go the way we want or hope.

CIMG2022Let’s face it and embrace it. We are inadequate. We lack knowledge for what comes next. We’re going to get tired. Real tired. And we’ll mess up. These aren’t negatives.

These are facts. Cues.
We need God. We need Him a lot.

“He who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.” (1 Thessalonians 5.24)

For each child, as one stage ends another begins. Practice appreciating the present. Return thanks to God daily – acknowledging the hard parts and the sweet parts. God will accomplish His will. In us and in our child.

He chose you to be your child’s mom. He has confidence in who we can be AS we partner with Him.

Always, with us.
Always, for us.

His view is more than we can imagine.
