It's Gonna Be Worth It

I've heard a thousand times from biological & adoptive moms that the waiting time we are going through now will seem like just a flash of time when we finally hold a baby in our arms. When we get "the call," the last 11 months won't even matter anymore.

I was having a rough time with it last week, and when I looked back on my day, I realized I had heard "It's Gonna Be Worth It," by Rita Springer that morning, and never noticed it. Granted, I know that song is about something much deeper and greater than my impatient wait for parenthood, but I do think I was supposed to hear it that particular morning.

"I don't understand Your ways
Oh but I will give You my song
Give You all of my praise
You hold on to all my pain
With it You are pulling me closer
And pulling me into Your ways"

My goal this week is not to be so focused on what I'm waiting for that I miss out on what I'm supposed to be learning during this time.

And besides, I use to sing this song when I was desperately waiting for Prince Charming, knowing that the man God had planned for me was going to be completely worth it. And HE did a pretty great job on that one.

While we're talking about music speaking to me, that same day I heard this song and was completely overcome with emotion. I think I do have this kind of love in my life, and it rocks.



I DO want God's best for me. I want His plan, not mine. It will be worth it.

  1. It is true. The minute you hold that baby in your arms all those years of wanting and trying just disappear. And you realize that that baby, the one you are holding, is the one God had intended for you all along.
    Praying your baby is coming soon!
