when it rains it poursPictured: a 27.5 week pregnant momma who recently took a pretty terrible fall in bath tub while almost simultaneously being diagnosed with pneumonia/bronchitis attempting to keep her two year old happy and feeling loved while currently being unable to hug, kiss or really even play with him due to being pretty immobile and on bed rest to heal my body.⁣⁣

As humans, we are juggling so many things: finances, marriage, mental health, parenting, careers, physical health, among so many other things.⁣

And sometimes it all goes really smoothly and our life feels like it’s in order. But, those times where one thing is out of place… man, it feels like the rest of our lives come crashing down too. Like, when it rains it freaking pours, right?⁣

Lately, it’s been pouring on the Abraham house🌧⁣

We’ve been feeling mentally and physically exhausted and asking God, “What in the heck is happening?” God woke Ross and I both woke up at 2am this morning in totally seperate rooms (I’ve been quarantined to the couch while he sleeps with Isaac and is being super dad) and we got to talking about God’s plan finally being somewhat revealed to us through the downpour.⁣

Guys, this is your reminder that:

  • it DOES pour when it rains because God wants you to turn to Him. In fact, 𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐎𝐍𝐆𝐒 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐇𝐢𝐦. So much so, that he never ever ever gives up on us no matter how many times we turn away.

  • His plan is THE ONLY WAY and that it will rarely (or never) look like your plan.

  • having faith and being obedient to His plan will do way more good for your life than hustling to do something that YOU want to do.⁣⁣

It may feel like it takes years (or never) to figure out why something happened in your life, but we are reminded to pray when time is hard and give thanks to God when we are going through hard things because He is good and He goes before us.⁣

Stay thankful. Stay faithful.⁣

I pray that you trust His plan today because it’ll always be SO MUCH better than yours.

Spread the love
