“Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” -Acts 2:38

Mom's Three Month Update

These first three months have flown by, and Micah is learning so many new things every day. He has mastered rolling over from front to back, so he finally enjoys "tummy time. He is learning to say many new sounds which has relieved us from the sound of only crying. He can say ba, ma, ga, and ah, as well as squeal in delight when he sees mommy,daddy or a favorite toy. He loves his rattles and has discovered how to get things into his mouth. He has many favorites including bath time, walks in the baby bjorn, singing with mommy and daddy, and swinging in his swing. Days are getting more consistent as we are attempting to get Micah on a schedule. We have thankfully dropped the middle of the night feeding, so we can all get a little more sleep. We're havin a blast!

Three Months Old!

O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God and God alone!

Wait in hope for My arm.
Isaiah 51:5

In seasons of severe trial, Christians have nothing on earth in which to trust, and we are therefore compelled to cast ourselves on our God alone. When our vessel is tilting so far over it is in danger of capsizing, and no human deliverance can avail, we must simply and entirely trust ourselves to the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks us on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God and God alone! There is no getting at our God sometimes because of the multitude of our friends; but when we are so poor, so friendless, so helpless that we have nowhere else to turn, we fly into our Father’s arms, and are blessedly clasped therein! When we are burdened with troubles so pressing and so peculiar, that we cannot tell them to anyone but our God, we may be thankful for them; for we will learn more of our Lord then than at any other time. Oh, tempest-tossed believer, it is a happy trouble that drives you to your Father! Now that you have only your God in whom to trust, see that you put your full confidence in Him. Do not dishonor your Lord and Master by unworthy doubts and fears; but be strong in faith, giving glory to God. Show the world that your God is worth ten thousand worlds to you. Show the wealthy how rich you are in your poverty when the Lord is your helper. Show the strong how strong you are in your weakness when underneath you are the everlasting arms. Now is the time for feats of faith and valiant exploits. Be strong and very courageous, and the Lord your God shall certainly, as surely as He built the heavens and the earth, glorify Himself in your weakness, and magnify His might in the midst of your distress. The grandeur of the arch of heaven would be spoiled if the sky were supported by a single visible column, and your faith would lose its glory if it rested on anything discernible by the carnal eye. May the Holy Spirit enable you to rest in Jesus.
