Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. (Isaiah 40:28)
My precious boy Zion turned 10 months old yesterday! These last 10 months have been filled with incredible joy and many opportunities to learn something new from my Heavenly Father. I’m still amazed that God has entrusted me with the gift of my little boy. His sweet developments daily fascinate me. I’m blessed beyond belief.
These last few days he has been pretty sick so not going to sleep as easily. I have spent more time rocking, swaying, and singing to him. It has been some of the most precious days of our 10 months together. He is so content in my arms, as he cuddles up close and finds his sweet spot in the crest of my neck. He noozles right on in there and rests. His arms wrap around me, as they rest on both my arms. The smell of his sweet skin truly entices me to stay in this moment longer. Everything about these moments are so precious to me! I love this little boy with more love than I ever thought possible. I cry tears of joy that God has given me such an incredible honor to raise him and I pray every day that God will give me the wisdom I need to be a great mother to him.
So today, as I rocked and swayed with my sweet little boy… I thought about the many times I have been sin sick and needed comfort from my Heavenly Father. I love that He is always available. He is always ready to hold me close with His incredible arms of strength. He provides much needed rest to my weary body, He gives me the love I so desperately need, He encourages me to go the distance, He embraces me with His mercy, He holds me up with His strong hands, and He enables me to climb the heights of life.
Thank You Lord for being everything I need and so much more than I could ever ask for! Your love consumes me, Your grace covers me, and Your sweet mercies capture me daily! I love you Lord and I pray that I can live my whole life surrendered to Your purpose alone!
