His Word and Trust

As my little "peach" grows inside me I pray daily for God to show me a full-term pregnancy. A pregnancy that goes to 40 weeks, a birth that would allow our baby to be in a little bassinett and stay in our hospital room with me, a birth that would allow me to nurse my own baby without having to pump and have it fed to him/her through a tube into his/her stomach, a birth that would allow me to hold my baby as long as I wanted without worrying about his/her breathing, if they are too cold, if their monitors are going to ring and I will have to put him back in his isolette. I pray I will be able to take our baby home when my hospital stay from the mandatory c-section is over. These all would be brand new experiences for me and my husband.

In a daily devotion we get into our home email David Wilkerson writes how we need to read God's word and trust in it. He write out some scriptures knowing that one would speak to every person who reads it. This is what spoke to me today, this moment:

“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:18-19).

With Asher's birthday being yesterday, it stirred up some emotions in my that don't surface often and that has to do with the boys and their premature births and hospital stays. Today, after reading His word I feel a peace that He will give me those new experiences, because only He can. Thank you Lord!
