Yes, I know I’ve been gone for so many months now, but I promise I can explain! As some of you may or may not know, I recently gave birth to my beautiful daughter Brooke Marie Thomas! She has been such a joy and I feel so blessed to be her mama!
With all the fatigue, achiness and pain that came with the third trimester of pregnancy, I went on a small hiatus unintentionally from writing these newsletters (pregnancy is REAL lol)! But I am happy to say that I am back and I’m back like I never left!
Here’s a fun fact! Many of the newsletters you’ve read previously were all revelations received when having difficulties in trying to conceive. In the beginning of 2019, my husband and I felt an impression from the Holy Spirit to start trying to have children…so we did! Little did we know that we would enter into a season that tested our faith and trust in the Lord.
Month after month we would feel saddened when we saw a negative pregnancy test. I eventually went to get further examined to learn that I had a blocked Fallopian tube that was causing the delay. It was through this season that I wrote the newsletters on how suffering produces perseverance, character and hope. It was in this season where I wrote on holding onto hope and setting our gaze on the unseen. I learned how to cultivate gratefulness in a valley season. All these newsletters were birth from a lowly time for my husband and I.
But one day the Holy Spirit led me to Ecclesiastes 3:11 that says “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” It was a reminder to me that God had me in mind and when He would bless my husband and I with a child, it would be the perfect timing.
And let me tell you now that God is sooooo right! The timing of Brooke’s arrival is perfect!
I look at my beautiful baby girl daily amazed by God’s faithfulness to gift us this wonderful child after months of disappointment. I want to encourage you today to trust God in all you do! Trust that he sees your needs and concerns. Trust that He will fulfill His perfect will for your life and remember that EVERYTHING GOD makes is beautiful in its time!
Lord God, may your beautiful children remember that they are seen and heard by you. Strengthen those who feel down and hopeless. Remind them that EVERYTHING you make is beautiful in its time! Give them your peace while in the waiting in Jesus name I pray. AMEN!
I love you so much! Until next time…
Until next time…
