Worship During the Wait…

“Lord help me to know that You are enough. Take my eyes off myself. Take my eyes off the Child I desire. Help me to delight in You. Mold the desires of my heart to be in line with Your will. I don’t want to need to be a Mother more than I need to be your humble, obedient child. I don’t want wanting to have a Baby to be a stumbling block between You and me anymore.
Lord, I want to give this desire, this drive, this ache up to You. Help me not to snatch it back as I so often do with the burdens I place in Your hands. Help me to truly be content with Your will and Your timing.
Lord, You know that I still desire a Baby – someone to mold, teach, train, shape, guide, and help to grow in You. But until the day You give me that joyous blessing, help me to grow in You. Let me reach out to those around me, let me witness and minister to the children You place in my path.
Lord, keep me from pushing ahead of Your plan. If we are headed in the wrong direction, change our hearts. Thank You for lifting my burden. Help me to keep You first. Let me seek you daily, and let me know You are enough.”
{ Hannah’s Hope }

I found this beautiful prayer a few months ago when I read ‘Hannah’s Hope’ for the very first time. This passage ministers to me and always manages to help me find comfort. I don’t know why things have weighed so heavily on my heart, but today was especially tough. I long to be a Mother in the worst way, but I need to remember to lift my burdens to the Lord.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 {NIV}
