I posted this on Instagram final week and thought it would encourage a few of you:

God doesn’t offer you grace for the long run. He provides you grace for at present.

The primary month after we introduced Champ dwelling from the NICU, I spent many hours in the course of the night time holding him, singing to him, praying for him, and shedding tears over the considered ultimately letting him go. I had solely recognized him a couple of weeks and but my mama bear coronary heart was madly, deeply in love with him. The considered saying goodbye to him and by no means seeing him once more was so excruciatingly painful to even contemplate.

I keep in mind considering, “I don’t understand how I may ever do this! It feels too onerous!”

And but, right here we’re, 7 months later and sure simply days or even weeks away from him going again to his mama. And I’m right here to inform you that God has been so trustworthy.

As a substitute of dread and anguish, I truly really feel a lot hope, pleasure, and pleasure — for him and his mama. She’s labored so onerous to have the ability to get wholesome sufficient to deliver him again dwelling. I can’t assist however cheer for her. The delight he brings to her and the way in which I see him bonding along with her… it strikes me at a deep degree.

Sure, there was intense grief in our dwelling over processing saying goodbye. And but, like one among our youngsters mentioned lately, “How may we selfishly need him to remain when he has a mama who cares for him and has labored so onerous?”

There are undoubtedly nonetheless many unknowns and what ifs. I may spend plenty of time and power taking part in these out in my head. However, we belief that the God who loves this lovable boy much more than we do goes to observe over him sooner or later. And I relaxation in that.

7 months in the past, the considered being right here was overwhelming. I didn’t understand how I’d be capable to stroll it. However that’s as a result of God wasn’t giving me grace for the long run.

As a substitute of sitting in concern over the long run, stressing over the unknowns of tomorrow, or losing power worrying about what ifs, I wish to relaxation within the goodness and faithfulness of my Heavenly Father. He has been trustworthy and He shall be trustworthy. And I can belief that regardless of the future holds, He isn’t giving me the grace for it proper now, however He’ll give me grace for it precisely after I want it.
