As my baby naps next to me and I fold her laundry I feel so incredibly grateful. I have sat in this same living room heartbroken and in despair after miscarriage after miscarriage over the past few years. I had a promise from Jesus. It was the promise I had been standing on for over five years and I kept crying out to Jesus saying, “You said I will have a baby. Despite what I see, I believe You.”
I did this with tears running down my face and clinging to the last bit of hope I could muster. It was hard and definitely a valley season. God gave me the Isaiah Song by Maverick City Music and I would sing over my life, “What was a barren season is giving birth right now!!!”
I sat in this same living room with my Bible study group and I would tell my friends, “You’re going to see me with a baby in this room one day.”
And today I sit here with her right here in this living room just like Jesus said. Just. Like. He. Said. And, it’s not glamorous but there’s no other place I would rather be. I chased happiness for so many years and I never found it. Then, one day, Jesus spoke to me through this quote… “You can’t chase happiness. You have to find it where you are.” I worked on that so many years. And, today I’m literally folding clothes and I am SO HAPPY.
Jesus gave me the gift of faith for the promise and He will give it to you too if you ask. I am here in my living room with my sweet baby girl that Jesus promised me. Miracles do happen. I challenge you today to believe for your miracle (whatever it is) despite your circumstances.
“Yet I believe with all my heart that I will see again your goodness, Yahweh, in the land of life eternal! Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!” Psalms 27:13-14 TPT
