As I was sharing my parenting journey in my blogs daily, I was thinking about the couples who are waiting to have kids. I thought they would feel sad reading mine.I like to share my four years of marriage life without a baby. Many hurt with their words, their actions and their looks. My husband is a person who doesn’t care about others’ backbiting. I was strengthened by God.
The one good thing which I do is taking bible class to kids. I feel them as my own children and pray for them. After a long wait, Preyerna was born. It is purely His marvelous loving kindness (Psalms 17:7). The day she was born, my heart said “God has given me at the right time“.
Use this time to understand each other and fulfill the purpose God has for you. God who has the control of everything, has the best to give you at the best time. Bearing a baby is purely His grace, so His grace alone is sufficient for You.
Yes, I wish to tell you the best feeling in my parenting journey. It is the moment when Preyerna leans on me. You may think,it is done by every child,but Preyerna does it very rarely. And at that moment, I will have a wow feeling and my whole heart jumps in happiness. I could feel her dependency,love and trust on me. I wish she does lean on me for a little longer time.
This made me remember John,who is the disciple of Jesus Christ. He is the one who leaned over Jesus and the bible says he is the disciple whom Jesus loved too. Yes, he should have loved him so much as he was near Jesus till the cross. John should have got the awesome feel leaning on Jesus Christ.
I am waiting for those rare moments of Preyerna leaning on me. Yes, Jesus is also waiting for his children to depend,love and trust him at all moments of life like the little child.Let us all make Jesus happy by giving this awesome feeling vice-versa.
Are you thinking… ? I had the same question on my mind yesterday as I was thinking about the unique sounds of all animals and birds while feeding my precious baby(this is how I call her). If it makes sound, can we hear?? Because when we are drowned in water,people outside the water can’t hear us.
Yes,scientists say fish makes sound by oscillating its swim bladder or by rubbing its bones.https://youtu.be/BtsB_JKNn0A They used an instrument under water to capture its sound.
If an instrument can make one to hear the sound of the fish under water, don’t worry if you are drowned in a pool of problems. There is a God who can hear you wherever you are.
Still you have doubt whether God can hear you..? I can clear it. I make Preyerna sleep and will be doing my work somewhere outside the room or house. But my innerheart detects her crying sound once she wake up wherever I might be. Everyone will be shocked about my sensitivity to her sound. I would have missed once or twice as I am mere a human. But our Almighty God hears whomever call unto him at any time from anywhere.
“Call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”Psalms 50:159
Love is a feeling that is from our heart. But certain situations in life affects the love within us. When I gave birth to Preyerna, I went into a postpartum depression which I was not aware about. I was not able to love my daughter. I was not happy and my heart was full of fear and I was crying for no reason. I thank Almighty for Sophie aunty who came and prayed for me .
Peace filled my heart and I was strengthened by the love of Christ. Else there would hav been a great tragedy broken out for no reason. I started to feel the love of my daughter and I started loving her more.
Why do I love you so much “my daughter” , Why do I care for you a lot Why do I nourish you Why do I look at you always and admire Why do I pray a lot for u Why do I worry a lot when you are sick Why do I cook so special for you Why do I hug you always and say “you are mine” Why do I wish to see you expect me coming when I am not around you Why am I not tensed whenever you wake me up Why did my ears get so sensitive to your voice Why am I so happy to see you grow Why do I try to protect you always Why do I want to provide you the best Why am I able to know what you need by seeing you Why am I so concerned about you Why do I calm myself when you dont do or accept what I tell Why do I discipline, counsel and teach you
These all characters of a mother is within Jesus Christ to whom we are a little prince/ princess always.
If a mother can do all these,why not my God. Missing your mother or haven’t seen her ,just look unto Christ . “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you” . Isaiah 66:13
