Based on the title, is anyone singing the Rent song, “Seasons of Love”? 525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes – how do you measure, measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. In 525,600 minutes – how do you measure a year in the life? How about love? How about love? How about love? Measure in love. Seasons of love.
I don’t think I’ve actually seen the musical, but I have heard the song. This post actually has nothing to do with the song, but I couldn’t help but relate the amount of minutes and moments to all the prayers that God has heard for our babies. God just leaves me awe-struck some times. It’s amazing to me that He has blessed us with 3+ years of praying over our babies. For their conception. For their delivery. Their health. Their sleep (yes, I often ask they would be good sleepers). Most of all that they would fall in love with Jesus at a young age.
Thousands of prayers! Not just from us, but from so many other prayer warriors too. It amazes me that we wouldn’t have had this opportunity had we conceived in 2012 when we originally wanted. I feel so blessed that He has chosen us to be on this journey. It amazes me that one day we will get to tell all of our children our journey of praying, hoping, believing, and declaring. It simply just overwhelms me.
I always try to look for the blessing. I always try to focus on the good. Focus on LIFE. Even though this journey is so hard, I can now add all the prayers I have been blessed to pray to the list of things I’m thankful for. Hundreds and thousands of prayers for THEM! It truly is a privilege to partner with the Lord and share my heart’s desires with Him.
Whether you have asked 1 time or 525,600 times, keep asking! Press into the Lord and keep praying. He acts on EVERY prayer. None of your prayers are being wasted. He isn’t tired of hearing your desires. Keep asking until He fulfills your request!
“This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.” 1 John 5:14-15
