Faith-full

When I decided to start this blog, the name Faithfull was put on my heart. Yes, I know how to spell “Faithful” but it was a take on the notion that I am Faith-full. As in, filled to the brim with faith.

Why?

Because God has been SO faithful to me.

On Mother’s Day, as I was lounging on the couch with all three kids draped across me…all I could do was thank God over and over for his faithfulness to me.

I remember so clearly one quiet time in particular shortly after I miscarried. I was absolutely gutted. By that point, I had been. trying to get pregnant for 3 years, and had gone through the grueling IVF process– too many tests and shots to count…and it had all ended in failure.

It seemed like everyone around me was having babies, which only rubbed salt in the wound.

On that day, the Lord revealed to me that I would have a son. 4 years later I became a mom….to my precious little girl.

What?!?

Did I get it wrong? Worse- did God get it wrong?!?

Nope.

3 years after that I became pregnant with not just one boy…but two!

As I look back over the years, I can say that without fail He has never planted a desire within me- without bringing it to fruition (or bringing me something even better). Sometimes it happened quickly, but most of the time it didn’t.

I remember back in 2005, when I realized I was being called to something other than the full-time practice of law. I had no clue what it was, but over time it became clear to me. 6 years later, I was led to quit my full-time law practice. The ultimate leap of faith. I jumped. 11 years later I have never looked back.

God has always provided for me…and not just bare provision. He has lavished me with his provision. He promised me one son, and blessed me with three beautiful children.

He told me I was designed for something other than law…but my life- our business is something even more incredible than I could have ever fathomed sitting behind my desk as a 25- year old newly minted lawyer.

God is SO good, y’all. So good.

In January of this year, He called me to begin a new project. A HUGE project. One that to me feels quite honestly like Noah’s ark. I’ve often thought about Noah…and how hard it was to build and build and build in faith…with no heavy rain. This was in the Early Bronze Age. No heavy equipment or advanced technology.

What a daunting prospect. But he did the work in Faith. And God provided. Just as a he always does.

That’s what I was thinking about this past Mother’s Day. The faithfulness of God. How he always provides. May not come in the time and package we expect (God hasn’t subscribed to the Amazon Prime model) 😂😂😂

But He is faithful.

That desire on your heart that has been placed by God. It’s coming my friend. Seek His guidance. Do the work. It’s on the way.

Father,

Thank you for always, always providing for me. Thank you for lavishing your provision upon me and my family. I am sorry for the times when I haven’t full trusted you. I believe in you, please help my unbelief. Guide my steps today and help me to do the next best one. Bring to me the people, resources, knowledge I need to take that step. Thank you for knowing my needs before I even ask. Guide me today and every day Lord.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen.
