I can't promise you anything. I can't promise you children screaming your name. I can't promise you sleepless nights from an infant who only wants his mommy. I can't promise you little league pictures, last days of school or mother of the bride dresses. I can only offer word of hope and peace. Comfort when the Word of the Lord is the only place to find comfort. 1 Peter 1:3-5 says, "What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole" Take that promise that God is watching over you. He hears every heartache and sees every tear that falls. God's blessing makes life rich; nothing we do can improve on God. (Proverbs 10:22)
May next year you be woken up to shrill crying and if in twenty years the blessing of children never come, take heart in the one who has overcome the word.
