God doesn’t offer you grace for the longer term. He offers you grace for right now.

The primary month after we introduced Champ house from the NICU, I spent many hours in the midst of the evening holding him, singing to him, praying for him, and shedding tears over the considered ultimately letting him go. I had solely identified him just a few weeks and but my mama bear coronary heart was madly, deeply in love with him. The considered saying goodbye to him and by no means seeing him once more was so excruciatingly painful to even think about.

I keep in mind pondering, “I don’t know the way I might ever do this! It feels too exhausting!”

And but, right here we’re, 7 months later and certain simply days or even weeks away from him going again to his mama. And I’m right here to inform you that God has been so devoted.

As a substitute of dread and anguish, I really really feel a lot hope, pleasure, and pleasure — for him and his mama. She’s labored so exhausting to have the ability to get wholesome sufficient to deliver him again house. I can’t assist however cheer for her. The delight he brings to her and the best way I see him bonding along with her… it strikes me at a deep degree.

Sure, there was intense grief in our house over processing saying goodbye. And but, like certainly one of our children stated not too long ago, “How might we selfishly need him to remain when he has a mama who cares for him and has labored so exhausting?”

There are undoubtedly nonetheless many unknowns and what ifs. I might spend numerous time and vitality enjoying these out in my head. However, we belief that the God who loves this cute boy much more than we do goes to look at over him sooner or later. And I relaxation in that.

7 months in the past, the considered being right here was overwhelming. I didn’t know the way I’d be capable to stroll it. However that’s as a result of God wasn’t giving me grace for the longer term.

As a substitute of sitting in concern over the longer term, stressing over the unknowns of tomorrow, or losing vitality worrying about what ifs, I wish to relaxation within the goodness and faithfulness of my Heavenly Father. He has been devoted and He shall be devoted. And I can belief that regardless of the future holds, He isn’t giving me the grace for it proper now, however He’ll give me grace for it precisely after I want it.
