I'm Still Here!

I'm not exactly sure why I've taken an almost 6 week break from blogging. That was never my intention. I guess we just haven't had much news to share, so I haven't had much to talk about. But I will say that I've missed journaling on here. You know, I started this to keep everybody up to speed on our baby coming and it has really turned into so much more. I'm very thankful to have this to reflect back on, to have proof of what God's been doing and what He's been teaching me. And I trust that one day I'll have a big, exciting announcement to make! In the meantime, I'll just continue to share what's happening while we wait.

So this week my friend shared Psalm 40 with me. It's so good! There are lots of truths about God in it, like how He hears our cries, rescues us, and puts a new song in our hearts. But I think what spoke to my heart the most this week is verse 8.

"I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart."

His instructions are written on my heart! I love that! It has given me such reassurance this week that if there's something that God wants me to do, He will make it clear. He'll write it on my heart! (I'd also really like a billboard in bold letters!) But how great to know that God's will is not a mystery or puzzle. It's not a trick or game that God is playing with us. He makes His will clear to us-He writes it on our hearts- in His time. I'm counting on it! If there's something that He desires for me and Yancy to do, He'll make it very clear and that is such a comfort to me.

One more thing... I love reading Lysa Terkeurst's blog. She's very open and honest and convicting. She wrote this week about life's gaps and it was such an encouragement. I think you'll like it!

I'm glad to be back! :)
