So many of you know some of the struggles I’ve been dealing with over the past year. Some of you have been going through them with me as well.
And I kept seeing this quote, all.over.facebook. this morning. It was everywhere. Every page I clicked on, every time I refreshed my newsfeed….other’s had posted and reposted it.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”
I saw a woman post a pregnancy test this morning, but it wasn’t the “oh look we’ve been trying for a month and I’m already pregnant,” post…
She explained her joy as a miracle, how she had been infertile for over 10 years, and now, completely taken off guard, she was expecting, simply due to the fact that she has changed her lifestyle into a healthy all natural one.
And I cried.
And I laughed.
And I rejoiced with her, because my week had been far from easy, and I needed something to rejoice in.
I rejoiced with her because the angels were rejoicing with her.
And there was God, and my heart whispered….“give it a try…”
Not just in fertility.
Not just in a healthier lifestyle, which we have already started.
Not just in tending to farm animals, raising our own food, trying to go all organic and chemical free, or in homesteading.
Not in trying to keep the floors mopped, dishes done, laundry put away….
Not just in taking time out to just “be” with my Savior.
But in everything…
What is man, that you are mindful of him? That you care for him? You created the heavens and the earth…the stars rest in your hands. What am I, who am I, that You should even care about my hurts, my pains, my frustrations, and the stiffness in my neck?
I am constantly amazed by the God I serve…the one who came to serve, rather than be served.
I am constantly amazed by Him, because He cares for me, even though He doesn’t have to…
…He cares for me, because I am His daughter…
…He cares for me, even when I could care less about Him…
And so, in the stillness of the morning, my heart whispers, “…give it a try.”
And there He is….
