Today isn’t just Valentine’s Day at our (Shannon’s) house, it is also my baby girls birthday!
This little miracle has changed my perspective on soooo many things and God has used her to teach me so many lessons!
#1 With God all things are possible!
26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 19:26
When I found out I was pregnant I have never been so scared! My babies were 7,6, and 4 I thought I was done with the baby stage. I had given EVERYTHING away! I thought I was in good shape, after having 3 kids I didn’t think I looked so bad but now 4 ! We have a very small house, we had a small car, how in the world could I handle a business, homeschooling, and a newborn?!?!? Yes, totally impossible with man but not for God!
#2 God’s plans for our life are better than we could ever imagine!
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” Ephesians 3:20
My dreams and plans were the complete opposite of what my life currently looks like. I can’t stress to everyone enough, NO MATTER how wonderful you think your ideas are for your life, when you give your life to God He will ABSOLUTELY do “immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine”. This will look different for everyone but God knows you perfectly and knows how to give you happiness better than you could ever find it for yourself!
#3 God guides, God provides!
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
This is just one little verse, but the bible is loaded front to back with story after story of people trusting God and Him Always providing every need. It’s also filled with people not trusting God and making a big mess of their life. The lesson is that we can’t worry or stress about anything but in all things trust God and He will never leave us. We got a new car, we are moving to a new house, and the icing on the cake is a body that looks better then it ever has Seriously God is amazing!!!
Whatever your dream is for your life, I challenge you to let it go and let God’s plan be the only plan you seek, but hang on tight because it will be crazy, amazing, and more fun than all you could ever imagine!
