Ask or Imagine

I keep reading and re-reading Ryan's post from yesterday. Every time I read it, I can't help but cry. To have a memory that is so so sweet, while being so painful and heartwrenching at the same time...well it's making my tear ducts work overtime.

In talking about August 16 and what that date represents with both my husband and mother-in-law, we all found ourselves in awe of what the Lord has done in our lives in the past 365 days.

One year ago today I had a baby in my womb that we would never get to meet. One year later I not only have another baby in my womb, but we have one in our arms as well.

Could we have even imagined what God had in store for us this past year? Could we have even imagined that we would have TWO babies in one year's time?

I have always loved the following verse, and I have seen it come to life in the past 365 days for the May family:

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine...." Ephesians 3:20

Not only is God able to do more than we can ask or imagine, but He wants to do more than we can possibly imagine or comprehend with our human minds.

Ask Him dear friends. Ask him to do immeasurably more in your life than you can even ask or imagine. Keep asking. Keep trusting. Keep waiting. I believe God desires to answer that prayer in a way that will rock your world. It might not be like you expect...and that's the best answer to prayer of them all.
