When there's only so much rope left...

It's both scary and exciting to think that there will be a little baby Blair in the house soon. When the reality of it all does hit, it is often accompanied by worry. I'm a planner by nature and now suddenly the details of life have been thrust up into the air. Honestly, it feels much harder to trust the Lord than before. Now there is another little life depending on me and I feel the pressure. I don't know what you all are walking through right now, but our family seems to be placed in circumstances where there is no alternative but trust in God. It's easy to say, "Lord, you know there's only so much rope left right?" He sees. He knows. He has never failed. I don't know if you need those words today, but I sure do. I need reminding over and over that His will is never thwarted, though my plans my lie in shambles. He will remain faithful, even in my faithlessness.

"For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken...Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." (Psalm 62:5-8)

I've often found there is something beautiful at the end of my rope, when I let go of my expectations and plans. At the end of myself there is only more of Him.
