* Workout group Monday!
* Ezra/Ollie/Camden’s team won
I would like to share my birth story of Luna. I’ll leave out the gorey details, but I think it’s important to share what God has been doing in my life. Luna is so cool.
My initial recovery was kind of scary but then the part I struggled with more was the fear once I got home. While sleep deprived, I felt the fear even more. I really loved this little person, why was I so afraid? At one point I felt like if I fell asleep, something awful would happen to her and then Cuyler would hate me and I’d be sad forever. In the middle of the night my eventual prayer was begging God to watch out for her while she was asleep, and if she needed me, that God would wake me up. I realized after the night was over, that I would desperately need God to sustain both me and her during the daytime as well. Just because I am awake and here, I still need God to protect us and continue even just giving us breath. Sleep is part of God’s design for us. So I decided I would trust him because any control I have is an illusion anyways. These are the promises I clung to in the middle of the night:
Psalms 127:2 New International Version (NIV)
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.
1 John 4:16-1816 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
