The prayer in our devotional last night really spoke to us so we thought we would share it with you. The devotional is by Ginger Garrett and is called "Moments for Couples Who Long for Children." The devotional talked about how God is still moving in our circumstances whether our journey seems swift or agonizingly slow. Our wait for a baby has brought a fair amount of weariness to us lately-We seem to get so close and then heartbreaking disappointment and another delay. It is such a comfort to know that God is always working, even when we can't see the progress. He is using everything, even the disappointments and delays, to work everything together for our good (Romans 8:28).
Here is the prayer, written by Ginger Garrett and based on Isaiah 40:31:
"Lord, we want to soar like the eagles and run without growing weary.
Walking seems so frustratingly slow!
We just want to cross that finish line-but You have many plans to accomplish
through our gradual progress.
Give us endurance!
The journey can feel so long and confusing; sometimes it can be hard to see
your hand in our circumstances.
Grant us the patience to continue walking, give us the strength to keep moving,
and grow our faith in You with every delay as we wait for a child."
Waiting is hard...but we are so glad that time waiting is not time wasted!
