Peace has been my prayer over this last week as Easter approached. Easter has always been a super tough holiday in the wait for motherhood. A few years ago, I decided that this day would be for me and the Father– one on one time, just me and Him…a day that I take a few hours and sit with Him and just be His daughter.
One thing I specifically asked for was peace. I asked Him to give me peace in the waiting. I asked for a peace that would give my heart rest. A peace that would quiet my thoughts. A peace that would distract my worries. A peace that would allow me to sleep soundly. A peace that would remind me of His presence in my life. I simply said, “Father, give my mind and body peace from the pain of infertility/loss.”
I was reminded of one of my favorite verses, Psalm 46:10,
“Surrender your anxiety, be still and realize that I am God. I am God above all nations, and I am exalted throughout the Earth”.
The Father has given me a week of peace in His presence. I have had many small reminders throughout the days letting me know He hears me and sees me.
We are His daughters, and He does not want us to be in pain in our waiting. He wants us to come running to Him and sit, one on one, in His presence and tell Him our needs. He loves us. He wants to fulfill the desires of our hearts. He wants to give us peace in the pain. He wants us to be still and know that He is God.
