SSMT Verse 2

It's time for our second verse for SSMT.  I am absolutely loving this.  And I must say I'm a little proud of myself for memorizing my first verse so easily.  I shouldn't be.  I know the memorization came easily because God helped me.  I didn't do it on my own.

There is something about knowing that thousands of other women are memorizing and meditating on God's word together.  It doesn't even matter that we aren't all memorizing the same verse.  I think that actually makes it more powerful.  God is at work in each of our lives and I praise him for that.

I wondered if God would give me my second verse as clearly as he gave me first.

He did.

Lately I've been allowing myself to be very honest with God about my desires.  I've been allowing myself to be honest with myself.

My heart desires a baby.  And I believe that God will give me the desires of my heart in his time.  I don't know if that baby will be biological or through adoption, but God knows.

I'm allowing myself to have this desire without feeling guilty.  It doesn't lessen my desire to adopt older children.  I believe that is the path we are to pursue and I'm joyful about that path.

My desire is to grow our family.  But I'm believing God to do even more than that.  I'm believing him to do more than I could ever think or want.  

I'm letting my imagination run wild with what God can do.  It's fun to dream.  And to think He can do something far greater than my biggest, wildest dream!

It's not to late for you to join SSMT.  Please join us.  Afraid your memory isn't good enough?  That's okay.  You can meditate on His word.  It will sink into your heart.  His word does not return void.  I will be your cheerleader every step of the way.  Let's allow God's word to fill our hearts and minds.  It's something we will never regret.

Love you sweet friends.
