|faking a smile to hide my misery|
In my opinion it is one of the most difficult things we do, because when we’re waiting things are usually outside of our control. I could do nothing to make baby girl come, I could only wait and trust God. Sometimes there are things to do while we wait, if waiting for a job then there is plenty to be done pracitcally in submitting applications or working on the resume, but even when we are doing everything we can do, God still provides things in His timing as we work towards the goal.
They all go hand in hand. I never expected baby girl to teach mea bout faith and trusting in God before she was even born, but she did. And I’m thankful for every last miserably painful day of pregnancy as each one was used by God to bring her to me safely. And each one was also used by Him to show me that He is working, even when I can’t see it. There are so many things I can apply this lesson to, even today. It’s awesome how God works like that ;)
