I recently had to pull away from social media apps, including Instagram. (In the future I’d like to write a post with more details on the matter. Brief summary: for me, they’re a stumbling block that can distract me from God.)
But when we first started getting the news of our son’s health concerns, I was still half-active on the ‘gram. I wanted to preserve some of those words on this blog. Even though those days were some of the hardest of my life, that’s when some of the BEST things happened to me, too.
This first entry was from March 20, 2023 – just a few days after that first appointment at the high-risk pregnancy clinic.
God spoke to me: “I AM WITH YOU.”
What do you think when I say that? Because honestly, I had been hesitant to share this because I know some people will think I’ve lost it. And if I overthink it, I’d probably cave to discrediting it, too.
I’ve heard Him through reading the Bible and I’ve heard Him through the Holy Spirit convicting my heart. But I’d never before heard Him so clearly as that day, alone in a bathroom stall.
In my brokenness, He knew exactly what I needed. I trust without any doubt that He is with me – and with Ronin – in the midst of this. And that is where I’m finding my strength.
