Rising From The Pit Of Despair

Rising From The Pit Of Despair

Do you ever dream of warping back to your teenage years? So many people I know have talked longingly about all those “wonderful” times. And inevitably they’ll ask me: “Wouldn’t you like to go back? Everything was just so easy then.” Don’t even have to think about the answer to that one: “Nope – would never want to. Unless I could bring back with me all the knowledge I have now.”

My husband and I recently celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary.  He surprised me with a trip back to where it all began.  The beachfront venue where we had our wedding reception is now an utterly amazing resort.

Our anniversary usually overlaps with Mother's Day weekend.  Funny how the Lord did that.  I think He knew even then that I would need something else to celebrate every year.  Something to keep my mind off of my own infertility.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a wife and mother.  Like most little girls, I played house and would name and care for all my dolls.  Even before I met my husband, I built my life around having children, but God had other plans.

Where is your sanctuary?

There have been many times when I think I have the next box all figured out and the Lord will literally give me a completely different idea during my prayer or Bible study time.  I always try to be obedient and switch gears, putting aside my idea for His. 

There have been a few boxes that I was really nervous about because it wasn’t the theme I had originally wanted to ship that month, but God.  God had a different plan and those boxes touched and in some cases changed the lives of the women who received them.  It’s in those moments that I sit back and marvel at how God orchestrates it all.
