My first child is due one month from today, on August 22nd. As a 37-year old women, I wasn’t sure that would ever happen for me. But what God has done in less than 2 years has astounded me.
Early 2020, I was discouraged, once again wondering if marriage and kids were for me; doubting if what I believed God for would ever come true. Then one day, in April 2020, I received a Facebook message from a girl from Switzerland that I had met briefly in Denver, CO, years earlier through YWAM (youth with a mission).
She told me:
“I know my message is very random, but this morning as I was praying I had the sense that God wanted to encourage you today. I heard the sentence “be still and know that I am God”. I feel like God is working out something new for you. Something is being sent, something is on the way. And I see you waiting. I don’t know if it makes any sense to you?!…
Be blessed and strengthened! 😃 😃 😃”
I immediately sensed God was encouraging me to hold onto hope for the desires of my heart- marriage and children, and sent her a photo of this sign that still hangs in my living room today.
Flash forward four months to August 2020, I meet Anthony Eiroa and now here we are a few weeks shy of knowing each other 2 years and we’re married with a baby on the way.
I felt led to share this to say whatever you’re believing God for, whatever you’re hoping in Him for (whether marriage, healing, kids, the dream in your heart, reconciliation in your family, whatever!), keep believing and keep hoping in Him.
He is good.
He is faithful.
And He will work things together for your good as you continue to be still, trusting and believing in Him.
He is good and He is faithful, not because He gives good gifts although He loves to give good gifts to His kids, but because His word is true. He can be trusted and believed.
As I was told by that sweet, faithful sister in Christ, be blessed and strengthened. May you continue hoping and believing today in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
