Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next month, or more, will be dedicated to guest writers. Today I am pleased to introduce you to Becca Warbreck. I have known Becca since we were both in high school. Over the past decade I have seen her become a wife, a mother and now, someone who ministers to the women around her in too many ways to count. I am so excited to have her sharing here with you today!
In the past 6 months I have been through a few too many seasons for my liking. I have had two really big highs and two of my deepest lows and a few weeks of everything in between, but through every high and low God has been faithful.
In the past 3 weeks or so God has really brought me through one of my darkest seasons, 2 miscarriages in 5 months. For about a month after my 2nd miscarriage I felt so stuck, like I was in a deep pit and couldn’t get out. Almost everyday I spent before the Lord, crying, yelling, asking questions, looking for answers, reading and praying. There is nothing like it when the Lord meets you in your deepest pain. When He speaks truth and promises to you when there is so much hurt and brokenness. I was so dependent on God during the last 5 months that He showed me so much more of himself to me. He has become so real for me; it’s hard to explain it.
Now, I grew up in a Christian home and gave my heart to God when I was 5, but something has drastically changed in my relationship with God. Through my heartache I have learned to hold on to God and His truths with everything I had. Daily I had to spend time with my Heaven Father so I would be comforted, so the lies would be silenced and my heart would be healed.
Now about 3 weeks after God lifted me out of my pit, life was getting back to normal and it seemed to be moving faster than ever and that is when I started slipping. My time with God was NOT a daily thing any more, my dependence on Him was becoming less and my life was starting to feel out of control. I had two extremely rough days with my 3 kids and EVERYTHING seemed so hard!
I was on my way to the Women’s Bible Study at my church when the song “Desert Song “ came on. Through this song the Lord spoke to me and said “IN EVERY SEASON I AM GOD!” Now I wasn’t in a place of pain, heartache, needing direction, or searching I was just living life with 3 young children and then He reminded me that “just living life with 3 young children” is a season and that I am in need of Him during EVERY season of my life. In the past week or so I had become so fleshy when I was trying to live life on my own and I was not being dependent on my God.
God gently reminded me that when I was in one of my darkest hours HE was there, when I felt so lost and so alone HE was there, when I was so broken and hurt HE was there. But He also reminded me that HE wants to be there through all the day-to-day stuff NOT just the BIG stuff. HE wants to give me advice when I’m at my wit’s end with my kids or when I’m having a disagreement with my husband, HE wants to celebrate with me when something exciting is happening. HE wants to just be around. God wants to live life with me and He wants to live life with you!
This takes daily action on our part; we MUST daily set some time aside to spend it in God’s presence. We MUST be open and willing to hear God’s voice at anytime of the day. We MUST depend on God and not on our own strength and wisdom to live day-to-day.
God’s desire is to commune with us on a daily basis in EVERY season of our lives. May the Lord bless you with wisdom, strength, guidance, love, healing and comfort as you live life with your Heavenly Father.
All of my life, in every season, you are still God.
I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship
God has blessed with a husband of almost 9 years, 3 beautiful children and the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. I started blogging in October of last year as a way for me to write down all my feelings & emotions and what God was doing in me as I dealt with my first miscarriage. Since then I have continued to blog about what God is saying and doing in my life and now He is using me for so much more than I could have every imagined. http://oneofhischildren.blogspot.com/
