14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. I should really memorize this verse. This is so much easier said than done. But of course. Very wise. Sometimes I think I have to help God out. Who do I think I am anyway? I remember about 21 years ago. I made a promise to God that I would not use credit anymore. We had three boys the youngest 5. I finally gave into the idea we weren't going to have anymore children, although I wanted a girl so bad I settled with the fact that God blessed me with three healthy boys and some day will bless me with three wonderful daughter in laws. So we sold and gave all the baby stuff including my maternity clothes away. Not long after that I found out I was pregnant. (our 5 year old prayed for a sister.) it was summer and I was so hot with no maternity clothes or budget to buy any. I thought I would help out by making my clothes. I would have to charge the patterns and material, but I was saving by making my own clothes, right? Haha...I know better than to try to outsmart God. Well I made a dress,washed it and it fell apart.God spoke to me loud and clear. "trust me my child." He said. I knew what I had to do. I had to take back the unused material and patterns. If that wasn't humiliating in itself, I had to take the material back to the fabric table to be measured. No big deal you say? Well it is when you used to work in the department and know everybody. Then, and here is the really cool part... The very next day I received two boxes full of maternity clothes from my dad and step mom! How cool is that? Yea...thats my God! "Wait on the Lord!
