Do you know what surprising grace is? This week I was struck by a huge act of kindness that was completely unexpected; it was in that moment that I knew in a fresh way that my Father sees me.
As many of you know from reading our blog, I so deeply want to carry a child, but I can’t. I so deeply want to be able to nurse baby flay, but I can’t. So much of this journey has been letting go of a dream that is so deeply a part of me, yet trusting that God is enough and ultimately all I need.
Matthew 6:8 says,
For your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
There are so many things that I have had to let go, but the beautiful thing about the gospel is that God restores our brokenness. God has beautifully provided a means for baby flay to have breast milk. A nursing mom in close relationship with me has already started a breast milk supply for baby flay. Josh and I will be buying a deep freezer this weekend to store the milk until baby flay arrives. I have no words as I am speechless at her generosity and intentionality.
I am hearing the gospel song as her kindness reflects my Father’s heart for me. This gives me courage to keep bringing my full heart before Him.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory. - Ephesians 3:20
