Read a blog post yesterday that I haven’t really been able to get out of my head since. I look forward to reading every single blog post of Amy’s. She had an amazing post about Squandering the Gift. Please go read. As a single person her blog really blesses me. Ironic because she’s married, but seriously, just read this post, she has amazing perspective. She always challenges me.
Anyway, I got in my car yesterday and I had a text message from Monica, one of my good friends… Along with that text came a sweet picture that I knew it was just a matter of time I’d be seeing. It was a ultrasound picture with “WE’RE HAVING A BABY.”
This is Monica and her husband Greg.
I was in her wedding almost two years ago this month! Hard to believe.
My first reaction was to be thrilled and I TRULY am. But you can’t help but feel like you’re being left behind with each and every person that is getting married, and then when you hear baby news, it’s like a double whammy. Seasons of life change, and sometimes I feel like I’m in this season all by myself.
I couldn’t think of a better word other than it just feels like you’re stuck.
It’s like everyone’s life is moving on around you, and you’re stuck in this perpetual game of waiting. But God is always an “on time” God.
I’m learning to take this time and receive it as a gift. I had never really thought of it that way until I read Amy’s post.
Lord, with each “I’m engaged announcement” I see, or “I’m pregnant” announcement I hear, please help me to not squander the gift of this season I’m in right now. It shouldn’t be a season of feeling stuck, but should be a season of great expectancy and hope that your timing is always perfect.
So, if you’re feeling stuck like I am, I encourage you... Please go read Amy’s post.
You may feel, well… not so stuck.
But with that said, have to give a BIG congrats to Monica and her husband Greg. They are going to be amazing parents!!
