God Favors Me.........Again

I'm going to be a mother to another Son again!.......you can read about my other children Here.  Today, my dear respected brother and friend called me to announce that he and his wife has chosen me to be the God mother of their third son Benjamin.  Benjamin is due in three weeks which would make his birth month April like myself and my other two boys.  Could this be providential?.....I don't know.

It's ironic that I was feeling so down especially after attending their baby shower on Saturday night.  I had fun but I couldn't help after getting home, reflecting on all the young ladies many married and  expecting mothers as evidenced by their little or big bumps.  Many by my estimation were within my age group a few older a few younger. 

When I got home I was like God!!!!! what happen to me....why am I still waiting, how much longer do I need to wait God.. I'm not going to lie I was mad and annoyed with my loving, sweet Jesus (let me be honest and real).  I still love Him, I still appreciate all the blessings, I still know that I can't exist wholly without God holding my hand. 

But today, my sadness is turned to joy as my friends could have chosen any one else (they have a lot of friends)....a married couple to be the God Mother/Parents for their child, but I was the chosen one. 

God has favored this household again with the joy of a child a boy child too.  I welcome you in advance Benjamin.....your name is great and mighty.  I look forward to sharing the joys of parenting with your parents and introducing you to your two brothers Isaiah and Josiah.   

May your days ahead be filled with health, strength, courage, Godly virtues and success in spiritual and physical matters in Jesus Name with thanksgiving I pray......AMEN.  Welcome my Child Benjamin.

  2. Congratulations on being selected as godmother once again! It's a great honour and for sure Benjamin's parents know what they're doing in selecting you.

    I've felt the same way you've felt...I really can't wait to just talk about things like this in a forum of people who understand and can encourage. Take care, dear!

  3. Amen @ Can I be real and honest? We get moments when we feel that way - let down and tired of waiting but thank God because in His time He makes all things beautiful and in the meantime, He sends you nudges such as what you've just shared to let you know "You're not out of my mind, I still got this!".. Congratulations! xx

    1. He does make all things beautiful in his time. I've seen it in my own life in other areas.

      God knows what He is doing and He always knows best.

  4. I know the feeling of waiting and it seems God has just taken a break from answering prayers..but nothing can change God from being God. your season is near, the waiting is over..keep on holding. he never fails. i remember just last week i lashed out to God and told him he doesn't love me and that right that minute the feeling is mutual...lol...Sykik is that crazy...

    congrats, on your new nephew.

    1. Sykik you also keep the faith. Even though we don't always get what we want and at times when we want it......God is still God and He does not change.

      Thank you for keeping it real!!! God Bless you.

    1. I've heard people say God has a sense of humor....I thought of that when you say " He already had this in the works when you were down!"

      God is charming and I love how He works.....:-) I Love you Jesus.

  7. I can completely relate to this post and sometimes being mad and annoyed with God and wondering why he is making you wait. The thing about God is that he really knows what we need and sometimes what we think we want or need isn't really what will complete our lives. So trusting in God as hard as it may be sometimes is the only thing that gives me peace during the days when I am mad at Him.

    Yay on being a god mother ... that is such an honor :)

  8. Congrats on being a godmother. I just love your attitude and real-ness. This is what life is about: acknowledging your own emotions/feelings, but still trusting God and being happy for others. May God give you your own testimony soonest in Jesus name. Hang in there.
