I am already dreading Mother's Day and I still have a good 3 weeks until it gets here. I am SO ready to be a mom and celebrate this day with my child. I woke up this morning to a surprise from Mother Nature and it really began to sink in that yet again...I will not be celebrating with MY child. It's not my time.
I was seconds away from having a breakdown when I decided to reach for my Bible to look for the Word of the day. God would have it that I opened my Bible to Psalm 113: 9 ~"He gives the barren women a home, so that she becomes a happy mother." This brought a smile to my face, but still I am sad because it's not my time.
Before I left for work, I pulled up my daily prayer from Joel Osteen. It was not an accident that today's prayer was a reflection on this verse, "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."~2 Corinthians 1:20 The reflection went on to say that you may not realize it, but God has already said “yes” to His promises in your life. You don’t have to beg God to be good to you. You don’t have to plead with Him to help you. God wants to help you. He wants to pour out blessing in your life. Stand secure knowing that God is faithful! Keep standing, keep believing, and keep following His commands because His promises are “yes” and “amen” in your life! And although his promises are "yes," are they promises for a baby? Will it EVER be my time?
After I finished getting dressed, I jumped in my car and pulled out my daily devotional book. Again, no coincidence the verse for today was "The vision is for an appointed time. Though it tarry, wait earnestly for it, for it will surely come." ~ Habakkuk 2:3 He had been trying to reach me all morning long...but this final verse gave me the peace that I had been wanting.
It will SURELY COME but it will be at His appointed time.
So instead of dreading Mother's Day for yet another year, I've decided to spend this special day with MY mom...which is definitely the next best thing. So, I booked my flight and made arrangements to share this holiday with someone I aspire to be like...the BEST mom EVER! And until His appointed time, I can't think of anything else I'd rather do on Mother's Day.
