Devotional: Proverbs 29 and my Uneventful Weekend

The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that. Proverbs 29:25

There are so many times when we don’t do what God asks us to do because of other people.

There are times when God shouldn’t even have to ask us to do something, and we don’t do it because of people.

Other people. People.

Wesley spoke yesterday about the day the sun stood still. Then he added how we let people trap us in fear, and how they are just people. They have never paused the universe.

But our God has.

He stopped the earth from spinning, because of his people.

He can do, whatever he wants to do.

And we trust other humans opinions of us, more than God’s.

And like what Wesley said also… What’s wrong with us?

There is no need in worrying about other peoples opinions of us. God’s opinion is the only one that really matters, but we (for some crazy reason) trust that other people know us better and deserve our 100% attention rather than the God of the Universe who knows how many hairs you have on your head.

It’s hard though. People do matter, we are supposed to love them. But putting their opinion above God’s isn’t going to get us anywhere.

Let’s live for Him, not for others.

I know that I’ve been quite the complainer here of late, and I would like to change that. Wes and I feel like this lil guy will be our last, and so I need to enjoy this pregnancy as much as possible. Even with my never ending list of ailments – it will be over soon and I’ll have a sweet little baby in place.

I am only 37 weeks and two days pregnant, but since Lucy decided to be an early bird and show up at 36w3days, I sort of expected him to do the same. I’m only 2 days into technically being full term.

I’d much rather me be uncomfortable for a few more weeks than him show up and not be ready to be here. Just because I’m sick of pregnancy doesn’t mean he is 😉

So – I’m not complaining anymore. I’ve been kind of waking up each day thinking.. “Is today going to be the day?” But every day that it doesn’t happen, I get a little bit depressed. So now, I’m just saying that I’ll meet him August 6th. That was the latest day my dr. suggested for an induction date. Anything sooner, and I’ll be happier. I’d much rather not be induced, but… I’m so far past ready, and with my history of a speedy labor, if I’m induced, then I KNOW I’ll be at the hospital when I have him instead of the possibility of having him in my jeep.

Friday we went to Hattiesburg just to get out of the house, and I started having contractions. I knew they weren’t getting stronger, but I just kept having them. We went to eat, and they continued, then we went to hobby lobby and they still continued. So, since my Dr’s office is right across the road, and I was having them so frequently, I decided to stop in.

They hooked me all up.

And sure enough, contractions – 3 minutes apart. But, they weren’t doing anything. I mean.. besides irritating me.

Then Saturday I had almost no contractions. Like, 3 maybe. And then Sunday was uneventful as well. Again, almost no contractions.

The best part about right now? Just me an my girl. We still have every second to spend with our Lucy Bea. Saturday I noticed she had gone missing for a few minutes. Then I heard the loudest sound coming down my hallway. Sorry its blurry.

She was in my new heels. Such a girl.

I think Lucy will miss me being pregnant.

She lays on my belly to watch TV. Pretty cute.

And she plays with Daddy before bed each night. Again, sorry for the blur.

And here’s me at 37 Weeks. This is the longest I’ve ever been pregnant!

And HA! Boy does it show.

Hope your Monday is great!
