Waiting…

Little bubba’s sweet corner is ready….we are waiting…. :)
Its not time yet for bubs to come…
I’m glad I’m made to wait.
Its uncomfortable sometimes.
I’d rather have what I want when I want it.

But life is not like that and God has a purpose in our waiting.
If you told me three years ago that God would bless Dan and I with two babies in the next 3 years – I would have found it hard to believe.

Can God really bring life and hope from the ashes?
Can He restore broken dreams and hopes?
I know He can.
But not by always giving us what we want, when we want it.
Sometimes we have to wait.
Its then we learn about the goodness of the Giver and His infinite love and adoration of us – His children.

God doesn’t place us in the waiting room of life…
He is active as we step out trusting Him and as we keep walking with Him…

He tells us to wait upon Him…
To know Him…
To look to Him…
To honour Him…

To find joy in all His gifts…
To place our waiting in His hands,
To surrender and to love Him and others with all we have.

Much love while I’m waiting,
Martine

PS. Thanks Emma and Clarence – we loved catching up with you the other week! :)
