A blog about the reality of God's presence, love and involvement in everyday occurrences. This is a record of my journey towards discovery. I often share thoughts on femininity, scripture, motherhood, creativity and ministry.

Not for One Second

When a doctor tells you that he needs to do an MRI to look for a brain tumor, it is humbling.
When you are lying there listening to the machine roar, praying to God everything is okay, it is humbling.
When the Spirit of God brings back all the scripture you've ever read about comfort and refuge, it is humbling.
When you have peace, it is humbling.
When your husband is stronger than you, it is humbling.
When you can't walk to the bathroom, it is humbling.
When the hospital staff remembers you from the last time, it is humbling.
When your family and friends stop everything to help you, it is humbling.
When your children miss you, it is humbling.
When people clean your house and make you food, it is humbling.
When you are in intense debilitating pain, it is humbling.
When you feel your baby girl move inside you, it is humbling.
When you realize that not everyone in the world gets the honor of carrying a child, it is humbling.
When you see a baby and hear its coos, knowing yours is coming soon, it is humbling.
When your children make "Get Well" cards and send them to the hospital, it is humbling.
When there is relief, it is humbling.
When everything is okay, it is humbling.
When you realize you just have to trust, it is humbling.
When no one knows why except Him, it is humbling.
If it was a mosquito, I'm thankful it was me and not my children in my yard that evening.
If it was for any other reason, I'm thankful to God that He knows better than me and that He rescued me.
He has never left me, not for one moment, not for one second in time and He never will.
