Life is about to change

Life is about to change

In 6 weeks’ time (or more for those of you who know me), we will be welcoming our newest team member. Our third son. And I’m super stoked about the new life and adventure! I’m also terrified of the lack of sleep and energy that will follow along with it. But, looking at the friendship among our oldest two, I’m so excited to give them a new friend, a brother.

 

Life is different, life will be different. “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Is. 43:19) So many of us are waiting for life to go back to normal. Life after corona. But life is not going to go ‘back to normal’. It’ll be different, it’ll be new, it’ll be better. God makes a way through the wilderness, He creates streams in the wastelands. The best is yet to come. So many promises in His Word proclaim of the goodness that He wants for us, the hope that He has for us and I’m going to take it. 

 

Life is crazy, and being 34 weeks pregnant, being reminded of your limitations, basically every 2 minutes of the day, is super challenging. I feel like giving in, and sit on the couch and do nothing. I feel like not caring is a much easier path to take. But, I choose to focus on the stronger family team that we became throughout the pandemic. I choose to focus on the friendships that went deeper. I choose to focus on the new ideas, passions and desires that are rising, in times of calmness and rest. I choose hope and life. Into the unknooooown (well said Elsa), secured, because I know Who is holding me.
