|faking a smile to hide my misery|
The last few weeks/month of my pregnancy was awful. I was miserable, sick, exhausted etc. It didn’t help that I was having labor-like contractions off and on for the entire month. It was terrible.
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 ;)
Congrats! She is adorable!

Aw, what a beautiful story! You’re so right – it’s hard to understand why we have to wait sometimes, but God knows and we can trust him. Thanks for sharing. And she’s so cute! :)

so precious, God is good :) xx Tara.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I’m 36 weeks ago and so tired of waiting and tired of being pregnant. I needed this reminder that God’s timing is perfect, and I just need to learn to wait…joyfully :)

Beautiful story, beautiful baby! Congratulations!
I am also amazed at how much my daughter (now 9 months old) teaches me about God and his character. He works in some mysteriously, wonderful ways. :)

WOW. God definitely had His hand on that birth. So glad to see that everything turned out fine.
Blessings to you and your family!
Ah,i f only we could always believe that He has a plan. But we get impatient – I know I do!
Glad everything turned out well!

Oh, she is beautiful! And, yes. His timing is always perfect.
Thanks for the reminder! I find myself in a similar position now. I’m 38 weeks and was up/restless last night with a lot of contractions. God’s timing is perfect!!
Always in His time. I have to remind myself of that a LOT! I am not a patient person. Congratulations on your beautiful little girl!

Such a good reminder. We may never know the reason for His timing, but there is always a reason!

I think you may have written this just for me. Waiting on God’s timing is SO hard. Thanks for linking up to Desire to Inspire.
