He Answers Prayers

It was two in the morning, I had been anticipating this moment for nine months, we both had. I didn't want to wake him yet, I just wasn't sure if it was the real thing, but the pain was getting greater, and coming faster than before.  So finally, I woke him up and said, "Honey wake up, it's time." 
My sweet boy was born 4 hours later, right on time♥ Thirteen & a 1/2 years ago...

Have you ever had that sort of "it's time" feeling? 

I've had it so much lately.  I'm not sure what it is, and it doesn't always feel good. In fact, it has made me sort of feel sick to my stomach lately. I know God doesn't want me to feel this way, He wants me to give it to Him.  So, last night I told Steve that I'm going to pray about all this, and I'm going to pray that tomorrow morning we get some sort of an answer.  I laughed and said, "you know my prayers get answered, so prepare yourself."  I was saying it in a joking manner, not mocking the process of course, but in playful banter knowing that God's timing is NOT my timing, and honestly not expecting it to really happen that way.  BUT hey, it could happen:) 

I got a call this morning from my sweet husband, and it brought tears of joy and gratefulness to my eyes and to my heart.  The very thing I told Steve I was going to pray for, actually happened!  I can't even believe it! 
In my last post I wrote about how the Bible teaches us that there is a time for all things under the sun, and our timing isn't always the same as what God has planned for us.  I stand firm on that, and only want God's timing, His will in our lives.  I don't believe in the "name it and claim it" movement. I do believe however, that He wants us to bring our desires, wants, and needs to Him to do with what is best, His will in our lives.  I'm so thankful He doesn't answer all of my prayers, cause hot digity dang I'd be in t-r-o-u-b-l-e! 

I've learned better than to jump the gun, count my chickens, and all that.  My prayer hasn't been completely answered yet.  So, I'm still praying while standing firm and waiting for His direction.  Waiting to hear, "April, it's time."
