"That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don't see what is enlarging us. But, the longer we wait, the larger we become and the more joyful our expectancy." Romans 8:25
"The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." Lamentations 3:25
I couldn't say it any better than my friend, so I'm just going to steal her words from our Bible study:
"Just as a pregnancy progresses and the mother gets larger with the growing baby, so should our expectancy as we wait for the Lord. We are promised so many spiritual gifts while we wait. the greatest of these is the gift of Jesus Christ himself. The listed promises...should excite us to wait for the Lord, for His hand, His voice and His work in our lives!" K. Duran
I am excited for what the Lord has planned for us and for our family with the birth of these sweet babies. It's so amazing to see what He has already been doing in each of our lives through the pregnancy and I can only imagine what is to come!!
