My baby Strider is feeling sick. :(
He had an accident in the hallway two days in a row and vomited three times yesterday. Poor baby. He's all curled up looking sad. Maybe it's the peanut butter Carson gives him to keep him quiet when he takes him out to potty. Hmm, no more peanut butter for this baby. :( I'll have to pick up some more dog treats next time I go to the store.
Anyway, now for the relevant part of this post. lol.
I was reading my new devotional bible last night and thought I would share, considering it seemed to hit home so well.
The subject of the devotion was "Promises Worth Waiting For". It talked about the story of Abram, Sarai, and Hagar.. And about how Sarai took matters into her own hands when it came to having a child, and now we see the consequences of it even today with the Arabs fighting the Jews for control over Israel. Eventually, however, God did fulfill his promise and blessed her with a child of her own.
The point is that God always keeps his promises, it just may not be in our timing. Jeremiah 29:11-13 says "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
God knows the desires of our hearts, and he wants to give us those desires if we will only wait for his perfect timing.
