Future Decided

The thought of starting over with new babies is quite scary for me, never having the opportunity of starting over with new babies is even more scarier.

I always imagined myself with 6 kids. I don’t know why 6, maybe because I was an only child and longed to have a big family. Not sure. I thought I would find that man of my dreams and settle down, and have babies, and have the opportunity to stay home and wipe noses, go on field trips, etc. I didn’t necessarily have to birth all those babies myself, even now, I wouldn’t mind adopting a child who was a little older that needed a family.

We watch Jon & Kate plus 8 all the time, and sometimes I think “no way I could have the patience for all those kids, Sara would have to lock me up” and sometimes I think “man, look at those little blessings, I wish I could have more”.

I’m not sure what God has in store for me. Not always sure what I want… Good thing God knows what I need…

Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

My Future Decided - United
Verse 1
You hold the future in your hands
You know my dreams and you have a plan
And as you light my way, I'll follow you

My eyes on all of the above
My soul secure in all you've done
My minds made up
And you are the only one for me

Jesus, savior, in my life you are everything
My future decided, I will praise your name
And I know that I am, I am yours
Yeah, I know that that I am, I am yours

Verse 2
You hold the earth in your command
You are the rock on which I stand
And as I live each day, I'll follow you

Aren't afraid, aren't ashamed Lord we know who we are
We are your people and we won't be silent
Unified hear us cry at the top of our lungs
You our God and we will not be shaken

i think when we are immature, God gives us emotional safety nets of dreams that seem concrete. it's only when we start becoming truly defined by our faith that God can take off our blinders and we look around to realize nothing is concrete. and yet we take a breath and find we are still peaceful with unknown days because eternity is so sure. you must be growing up. ;)
