Waiting is hard enough with a due date. Without an end in sight for our waiting, we tend to focus on so many unknowns.
We focus on:
1. What our daughter will be like.
Will she be younger or older?
Will she be very sick or mildly so?
Will she be anxious or accepting?
2. The agony of the waiting.
How long will we have to wait?
How will I pass the time while I wait?
How do I continue waiting – doing nothing.
3. Our inability to do anything.
We cannot plan too far into the future with so many unknowns.
We cannot think about what our future will be like.
We cannot have a clear view of where exactly God is leading our family.
Every moment that we trust with a quiet confidence, God is saying: that is good.
