My daughter, Ashtyn, is always LATE. Not only, was she late in terms of, we couldn’t get pregnant to have her…but she also arrived late!
She was due on Thanksgiving, but no one in the family wanted to have their holiday interrupted.
So I decided, I’m going to fix this late girl’s problem! We are SCHEDULING her birth, Monday morning, 6:00 am!
We lived 35 minutes away, so I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning. When we got to the hospital, the nurse told us,
“We don’t have a bed for you. Can you come back in a couple of hours?” And PS. Pregnant woman… “Don’t EAT!”
That’s the devil!
Well, two hours turned into FOUR. Four hours turned into SIX. Six hours turned into EIGHT. Eight hours turned into TEN. Ten hours turned into TWELVE!
Pregnant woman ain’t supposed to eat! (Sorry about the grammar.)
FINALLY, around 6:00 pm they said they had a bed for me. I said, “YOU BETTER, OR ELSE I’M GONNA EAT ONE!!!
I had to release all my pent-up energy about Ashtyn coming. (My sincere apologies to the nursing staff!)
We all have bottled up energy inside of us: over the promotion, involving the kids, about the new house or toward finding a spouse.
WHY hasn’t this worked out for us, yet?
Then, when our expectation isn’t met according to OUR timeline; the energy of what WAS our expectation can suddenly become our enemy!
So, while we’re in our waiting period, we can’t let doubtful words come out of our mouths.
Keep the faith and RELAX! God has a plan and a timeline all His own!
What have you been expecting SO hard and SO long that you feel like you’re going to burst? Would you share that with us, below?
