What’s Missing?

couple 2I had a bit of a rough week. I thought I was only feeling down because of Mother’s Day, but later realized that was only part of it. I was paging through Facebook, only to see pictures of a bunch of mothers-to-be, and then it hit me. It was not only missing my mother that was affecting me, it is also that fact that motherhood has eluded me.

I understand why people get discouraged and have difficulty continuing with God (not me, but I can understand it). It’s the things that are missing from our lives that can sometimes rock our faith.

Philippians 4:6

New International Version (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

New International Version (NIV)

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
