Keep Calm & Trust God

"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand." Proverbs 19:21

This weeks article is written from a very personal place in the White's house currently. The expectation of any child's birth is marked by a very special date, the due date. We spend a lot of time planning things around that date. When the date approaches, everyone has grand anticipation of that being the day on which the special new baby will be born. 

But, sometimes, as in our current case, that date comes and goes without the birth of said bundle of joy. As I write this, we are 9 days passed our due date and at first that isn't that big of a deal. But, when a couple days turns into a week plus, what was anticipation, simply put, turns into frustration.

And boy, isn't our life with Christ just like that sometimes. I know mine is. We make plans, and we build everything around those plans and as long as everything is going to plan everyone is just having a great time. But sometimes, when frustration starts to fill the void, we should just stop and remember, it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

This little girl will be born in His perfect time, not a minute sooner, not a minute later. And no matter what my plans are, it is the Lord's purpose that will stand. We must hang our faith and confidence on God's perfect time. In your life, whatever breakthrough you are praying for, whatever need you are looking to have met, whatever circumstance you face, plan and be as prepared as you can, but remember that it is the Lord's purpose that will stand.

Thank you so much for your prayers and your genuine concern for our family! You cannot know how much we appreciate it!

Grace & Peace,
