Answering with Sleep
All parents know that sleep is at a premium when you have a baby. When you have two babies, sleep is priceless! Unfortunately, that often means it is out of our price range.
However, the Lord poured out his mercy on Deedra and myself on Saturday night. For the first time in their short lives, both Cohen and Lily slept for 6 hours at the same time. Praise the Lord!
We have yet to experience a similar night since then, but that one night came at point when both Deedra and mine faith was at a low point. We know the Lord loves us and hears our cries, but on Saturday night we had hit a wall. We went to bed praying for the Lord to give us more faith to believe, to trust, to love. He answered by not waking us up!
How good is our God who hears our prayers, who answers us even in the most trying times; whatever those times might be. I hope the encouragement that God gave us on Saturday night will be an encouragement to you. We know and love a God who is near, who hears his children, who answers prayers, and who shows us how much he loves us by sending his Son to die in our place. Praise be to him indeed!
