Well, I am three days overdue now. I never thought I would go late with this baby! Just goes to show that God is really in control of all of this and His timing is best. I am trying to trust Him and not be selfish in my prayers. It's so hard when you are at this stage to not dwell on your own circumstances. It really is all-consuming. In my quiet time today, I confessed to the Lord the fact that I have been totally consumed with myself and my own desires. I do want what He wants. I do want to take my focus off myself and see the big picture. I am minute by minute trying to give over my own wants and surrender to His.
The chorus of a certain worship song has been my anthem the past few days:
"It's all about You, Jesus
and all this is for You, for Your glory and your fame
It's not about me, as if You should do things my way
You alone are God, and I surrender to Your ways."
That's it for now. I will post again soon with more baby news...
Thanks to all of you out there that read my blog and are lifting me up in prayer. I really appreciate it!
