season of waiting

I am very much in a season of waiting right now.  I am waiting on the Lord to give me a baby and also waiting on the Lord to provide me with a job.  I've never been the most patient person, so all this waiting has been really hard nearly impossible for me.  I've asked myself questions like: I know I'm ready for a child and am very much ready for a career change, so why hasn't the Lord provided?  But after many days in prayer I finally realized that He HAS provided, just in a different way.  Right now the Lord is wanting me to rest and trust in Him.  He's wanting me to use this time to prepare my heart to be a mother and to enjoy some time to myself before a new job begins.  I'm reminded that as long as I'm doing my part in the processes, the Lord WILL be faithful.  I'm thankful to follow and serve a God that truly knows my heart and my deepest desires and provides me with exactly what I need, even when I don't know I need it.

The Lord is and will be faithful.


  1. So true, Steph! You have such a great attitude and you are so encouraging!

  2. I feel you Steph! Waiting is so very hard, and its mostly in retrospect that I can see the Lord's hand in my life during the most difficult parts of it. We're still waiting over here too, and I feel my soul stretching in ways I never knew it could, with His help. Keep fighting the good fight!
