"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." _Jesus (Mk. 11:24)
My daughter, Stephanie, is going for a Sonogram tomorrow morning. This will be her fourth child. She has three sons, Joshua 10, Matthew 7, and Noah 5.
I have been praying for a girl, --in a Thy will be done sort of way. I talked with my son-in-law the other night and said, "I have been praying for a girl." He said, "Well, it is what it is."
I wonder though: For the Lord said, "whatever you ask in prayer".
If I am praying for a girl, with a humble heart, could the Lord make that happen, even if the baby is a boy right now? I guess that is kind of a silly statement. But we know God can do whatever He wants, and he saod "whatever you ask."
Another thought is My prayer for Steph to have a girl, was even before Steph became pregnant, and so my prayers even now may possibly are being answered, even though they were answered months ago.
Or perhaps, I shouldn't have in the first place prayed for a girl.
I remember when I went to Steph's Sonogram for Noah, and how I longed for a girl back then, but the picture showed a boy, Noah to be exact. I was very disappointed to be honest. But now, I can not imagine this world, or universe, without Noah Hudson Shive. He is an incredible blessing and boy.
So that is my "just rambling a bit tonight", because I needed to. Ah, I feel better now. It's nice to have a blog.
If you read this, could you pray for my daughter and her baby, that the Lord would bless: Just bless with His powerful and tender hand and His wonderful presence is all. Thanks and gracias.
Oh yes, we have a pool. We are the envy of the neighborhood.
