Glory be to God
It's really late and I should be sleeping. But no, I'm catching up on blogs:) Quiet and alone times don't happen often. What a blessing that I am awake. God has shown me so much this past hour.
How many times do we pray for things. Like peace, spouse, kids, endurance etc.. It's funny I know many people that have prayed for God to provide a husband only to end up after they get their husband to start praying for God to change their husband. Or like me I pray for peace only to end up praying for forgiveness. Or for endurance only to find myself praying for rest. I don't know how many times I prayed for our children we hadn't met for God to protect, care for, love and show us them. How funny that lately I pray for peace, quiet, sleep and strength to love , protect and care for our children he gave us. As I was typing this Daizey woke up 3 times crying, Lukas is sick, Adam is gone, I haven't slept more than 5 hours in 48 hours, but I can't help wanting to sing praises to God. He has given me all I asked for and more. He created circumstances that leave me exhausted and tired so therefore He has built my endurance. Everyday huge stresses fly my way therefore I lean on Him for peace. I can't help but to give God the Glory. It became so real to me as I hold my precious daughter in my arms and type this. At first I was thinking, "Man, not again. Please go to sleep, I'm tired". Then I looked down at her and thought, "Thank you Lord". My prayers have been answered.
