Reality Check

This week we had a scare regarding our pregnancy. Thankfully it turned out to be nothing more than a fibriod which 75% of women have and it is in a place that will not effect the pregnancy or birth. This was scary, we are thankful for our friends who prayed, and it got our attention and lead us deeper into prayer.

My thoughts on it are this. 1. Things change quickly in life. I read yesterday that a spiritual discipline of the midevil church was for them to think before each prayer that they might die at the end of give it all you got! Our lives as Johnathan Edwards preached on, are hanging by a thread. We often forget that. 2. Fear is powerful. The unknown and all the possibilities, especially the worst ones, can cause chaos. It is no wonder to me that the Bible address fear so much. 3. God never gives you more than you can handle. I am so thankful for the position we are in so that Karin and I can really embrace this pregnancy together. When she was pregnant with Aidyn she was still working at this point. There was no slowing down and resting.

Glad things are looking OK. Even though it's tough, it's a grace that God breaks through our contemporary illusions of having everything under (our) control. Love y'all.
