Another Long Day

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9a)

For we were so utterly, unbearably crushed that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death so that we would rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He who rescued us from so deadly a peril will continue to rescue us; on him we have set our hope that he will rescue us again. (2 Corinthians 1:8b-10a)

I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. (Romans 8:18)

It's been a very long day. Like the first hard time of 4 hours, but this time pretty much all day. Not as much pain until the past few hours, but I will just say that is has been a very....... hard.... day.

This is definitely turning out to be worse than I thought it would be. Definitely a lot worse than last time. I guess because I was further along and supposedly in a different type of pregnancy.

I am so tired and weak right now. I took extra iron this morning when it got worse but I don't seem to feeling the effects, though I may have felt the lack of affect if I had not taken it, so maybe it is helping and I just don't know it.

I feel bad complaining on here, but I meant this to be a log of my experiences, and I want to include all the stages, good and bad. I also know that this experience is can't compare with what many people have suffered and faced in their lives. My life has been so protected and blessed. But, in my life, this is what I am going through. And as a friend once told me... your broken foot doesn't make my paper cut hurt any less. A lightening of the mood there. :) I know God considers all of our needs and understands how they affect us individually. And He desires to meet them all equally.

I am still trusting and praying. I know this won't last forever. In retrospect it will seem such a tiny blip of time. But right now the day is really long.

I was praying for you yesterday sister...wanted to email you...but somehow knew it was going to be a very hard day. I pray that God brings peace and healing to your body in every way.

Your "Saturday" was not different from the "Saturday" the Disciples and Jesus' mother was the WORST day of their lives...Jesus had been crucified...He was gone...and sadness and distress overtook them. They more than likely thought they would live every day of their life going forward in misery. But they forgot to trust in Jesus' words...they forgot to cling to His Promises...and they forgot that "Sunday was coming."
Hold on the Cross...God is all about redemption and resurrection and bringing beauty from ashes. God is all about writing "Glory stories." He WILL use it all for good...He says, "Wait, watch, trust Me...I'll do more than you can hope for."

Love to you!
