Those Who Dream

“When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with joyful shouting; They who sow in tears shall reap with joyful singing. He who goes back and forth weeping, carrying his bag of seed [for planting], Will indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:1-2 & 5-6 AMP

Guys, I’m at a loss for words.

How do you say goodbye to a season that God has used to make you into who you are? This journey has been too sacred for words. I’ve had very few of them (in-person and online). The Lord told me and shaped many things in me long before this gift, promise and miracle manifested within me.

But we got this far by His hand.

Where there was sorrow, there’s laughter echoing from corners of my heart that were darkened by loss.

Where there was fear, there’s love and a faith so fierce it has me swelling with certainty that God goes before us before we even realize that He went to win our war.

Looking back, I remember writing Chosen Not Cheated in the heat of our 1st miscarriage hoping that the launch of the book would be crowned with a child. But God had a better story to write. He weaved hope and strength in the hubby and I through every consecutive miscarriage. And I’m so glad He did.

He awakened me, birthed me anew, and shaped me into the warrior I am today.

And this, this is me giving thanks to God. I saw Him, learned and tasted (experientially) how good He is through that season of loss.

Because guys, He is soooooo good.

No matter where you’re at, always leave room for God to prove Himself faithful. Always…

Just as He’s done it for us, my God hun, you’re next in line! Believe…
