What was I thinking? I mean, starting all over again with the baby stuff? The sleepless nights, the diapers that require hazmat suits and masks, the feedings….by hand?
I was thinking that God wanted a Mr. Jett Takle to be born into His Kingdom. And, I know that God already knew him long, long ago.
I’ll admit I had moments throughout my pregnancy where the thought of enduring this season again seemed overwhelming. Shoot, there are moments at 2:00AM that I feel those same overwhelming thoughts now. Will I ever blog again? Will I ever sleep again? Will I ever eat slowly again, because I have all the time in the world? But, I know it’s just a season.
My sweet friend, Cindy Beall, sent me this message when I was in the hospital with Jett:
“God has given you the grace you need for this season. You are fully equipped as a child of the King to accomplish what He wants you to.”
My response to Mrs. Beall was simply, “I receive that.”
The truth is you can receive that, too. No matter what season of life you are in. No matter where God has you. He will give you the grace you need for your season. He will equip you to accomplish what He wants you to. Do you get that? Do you get that God wants to use you for His glory no matter what season you are in?
So, even when I am patting the back of my amazing baby boy…..
Even when I’m resting my cheek on his sweet smelling head….
Even when I’m wiping the sleep from my eyes at 2:00AM….
I will remember that God has given me the grace for this season. And, I will soak up every minute of it. Because, I will blink my eyes, and it will all be over.
