He is Sufficient

It has been a good week thus far. The Lord is meeting my needs in all the weak areas of my life.

1. Days that I should be running low on energy because of restless nights, I have all the energy I need and then some.

2. When I need a pick-me-up, my brother Joel calls and tells me that his son, my nephew, Ethan, throws up when he laughs just like Joel and I did when we were kids. Love it!

3. I read my friend's (SaraAnne's) photo blog and she mentions a song (His Strength is Perfect) that I haven't thought of in years and it ministers deeply to my soul.

4. I have sciatic nerve pain that is just ridiculous and our resident teacher / doctor, Doctor D, at our school today shows me just the right stretch to alleviate some those frustrating aches and spasms. He keeps his eye on the sparrow and how much more will he watch after his sons and daughters.

5. My school is has been so very supportive in prayers as well as in an understanding attitude in how much time I am having to take off for Maia.

6. I have a wonderful husband and son who give me tons of love and kisses from the moment I walk in the door and a husband who is so patient and giving when it comes to household chores as his preggo wife has a hard time dragging herself off the couch at night. He has been doing so much for me!

7. Then I have the blessed opportunity to feel all those kicks and jabs throughout the day that remind me I have a growing and wonderful little girl coming in a matter of less than 6 weeks! Amazing!

God you are so very Good! You do not have to bless me with any of this and yet you do! How thankful I am for all the little things that up to ONE BIG wonderful act of LOVE. I cannot express how wondrous you are!

Some of the most encouraging words ever written are found in Jeremiah 29:11-14: "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me...and I will be found by you,' declares the Lord."
