We are in the middle of potty training our twin boys, and man has it been an adventure!

L loves to use the potty and is so proud of himself as he eats his m&m after he uses it and prances off in his big boy Blippi undies. Robug on the other hand, has done an amazing job but is a little more hesitant of the potty. He doesn’t have the language just yet to tell me but I can see that it looks big and scary to him. He keeps trying though because he trusts me. I’m his mom. I’ve noticed that he wants me close when he is about to sit on it. He even says, “Hug, Mommy?” And I literally hug him as we wait together for him to use the potty.

I’m in a season right now where God is calling me into a place of His heart that I’ve never been before. This requires me to let go of the things that I have depended on over the years instead of depending on Him. It looks scary to me at times and I don’t even have a language yet of what it makes me feel or think. But I know it’s best for me because He’s my Dad. And I trust Him.

I’m so thankful for this community. Natasha sent me these verses last week and it’s exactly what’s going on in my heart. She reminded me that He’s inviting me to this new season with Him. He’s inviting me on a fox hunt. But I don’t have to do it by myself. I get to do it with Him.

The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
filling the air with songs to awaken you
and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny
breaking forth around you?
The early signs of my purposes and plans
are bursting forth.
The budding vines of new life
are now blooming everywhere.
The fragrance of their flowers whispers,
“There is change in the air.”
Arise, my love, my beautiful companion,
and run with me to the higher place.
For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock.
It was I who took you and hid you up high
in the secret stairway of the sky.
Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice.
How beautiful your eyes of worship
and lovely your voice in prayer.
You must catch the troubling foxes,
those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship.
For they raid our budding vineyard of love
to ruin what I’ve planted within you.
Will you catch them and remove them for me?
We will do it together.

Song of songs 2:11-15

‬‬There are times where He might call us into something new that might look big and scary, but He will always come with us. I feel Him close, waiting on me to ask Him for a hug or kiss, just like Robug wants a hug from me.

If you are in a new season and you’re not sure what to think or feel, Father is right there with you. He is near, and willing to give you hugs whenever you need them! You can do it together.
