In Matthew 21:18-22, Jesus is hungry & he walks by a fig tree. This tree was bear. Nothing, but leaves.
Jesus said to the tree: "May you never bear fruit again." The tree died immediately.
This amazed the disciples.
They asked Jesus, "How did you do that SO fast?"
"I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea', and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
What a powerful message, huh?!
You see, I am a planner. & a worrier. & I worry that things aren't going to go as I plan them.
It drives my husband (who is the most carefree person in the world) crazy, but I can't help it.
Since, I've been pregnant. The planning and worrying has gone to a new level.
This life inside of me consumes the majority of thoughts now-a-days.
I love him in a way I never knew I could love. He is my most precious. He is my baby.
So, naturally, I worry.
Is he healthy? Is he growing like he should be? He hasn't kicked in 10 minutes, is he okay? Should I have drank that cup of coffee this morning? SO many things. Most of them very silly. But alas, I am a worrier.
And then the planning...OH, the planning. So, much to be done before AND after baby arrives.
So, lets go back to these verses above...
They reminded me of the importance of giving this life in my belly COMPLETELY to Him.
Now, soon as I found out I was pregnant I prayed and told God this pregnancy is His.
But, did I really give it all to Him?
I'm not so sure. But, I know it's vital.
These verses were a wonderful reminder that I need to stop being a worrier, a planner, & a control freak and just give everything to God. To have FAITH that He is going to take care of this precious gift He has given to me. That I should always remember that with prayer & faith God can do great things in your life.
I know God is in control & that He already has a plan for Miller. :)
