I want to bare testimony to the fact today that God has been so good to us this week, strengthening me throughout each day to carry out the tasks of motherhood in this new season. The keys have been remembering He is my strength…I am not equipped on my own to do this job He has called me too…and finding encouragement through morning devotions with my husband.
It has not been an easy week by any means. Micah gave me a surprise run for my money Monday and Tuesday, more unusual for him to act out these days. Ellie has actually taken on the role of the “naughty one” lately!;) Amelia has been having latching issues at night so sleep has been difficult for me as, for the last few nights, each night feeding has been a lengthily affair. But, I have sensed God’s presence each day. He has assured me that He will not abandon me.
Other means of encouragement have come through the community surrounding us through our church. Friends have been visiting, providing us with meals and letting me know through emails that we are loved and thought of. This has meant so much to me!
And then, this little note below left on Facebook Tuesday was a gift in itself. My father-in-law (aka dad Rose:) left a status update about a Wayne Watson song entitled “Somewhere in this World,” a song about a parent’s prayer that their child would find a godly spouse. Mom Rose then left this for me:
So, in conclusion, God has been very good to me, to us. “A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark NEVER failing!”:)
