When God Speaks

Sometimes God speaks to us in the oddest of ways, but does so to get our attention. This email was sent to me by my mother-in-law, and I couldn't help but think that this was meant for Allison & I, right now. Whether you believe that prophecy is still God-given and relevant for today or not, I am not here to debate. What I can say is that I truly believe that God still cares enough to speak to us, and its not always directly to our hearts.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- March 26, 2009:

Exercise patience as you remain steadfast and faithful. What you thought was a breakthrough seems to have evaporated, but I tell you the truth that it is more important than ever that you persevere. You will be tested with temptations to be disappointed and become discouraged, but you must not give up. Keep pressing through, and know that I am with you to bring you forth in victory. This is not an easy time, but you must keep the faith and continue to move forward, says the Lord.

Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

Jenn &Allison,
I am so sorry that the egg retrieval was canceled. It must be so hard to hear that. I will keep you both in my prayers.

This truly did speak to my heart. It's so applicable to what we're going through right now. I know this will all happen in His perfect timing. That's my belief and I'm sticking with it.

You should also read "These things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day." Habakkuk 2:3 LB It's the verse that LD heard at church as we were gearing up for our egg retrieval and transfer. (it's in her signature)

OK so I am leaving y'all a distraction in order to occupy some of your time. I am praying for you though. Come over to my blog because each of you have been tagged.
