A Mother's Longing

I always knew I wanted to be a mother one day. I never knew that desire would lead me down a path I hadn’t planned for my life. After trying to conceive for several years, many tests and doctors appointments, my husband and I received some of the hardest news; it would be impossible for us to conceive. After a few days of honestly feeling so defeated, my husband reminded me of the scripture we’ve spoken over so many situations for other people. “What is impossible for people is possible with God.” Luke ‪18:27. We decided to get another opinion. After more procedures and many hard days, we finally got the answer to several years of prayers.

In August of 2017 we gave birth to the most beautiful little blue eyed boy. I’m not sure why we walk through difficult seasons in life but I know that my God has never let me down. Being a mother has changed my world completely. I don’t remember what it’s like to take a long nap. You know the kind where you lose track of how long you’ve been sleeping?? I also don’t remember what it’s like to drink hot coffee. It always seems to get cold while I’m distracted. I do know that I’ve never had a deeper appreciation of how desperately I need the Lord each day and how much he loves me.
