Pregnant Thoughts

I'm somewhat familiar with being pregnant. I've been around my wife for 3 pregnancies, but as most moms would tell me..."It's not the same." I'm sure it's not. I don't understand most aspects of pregnancy, but I do know what it's like to "wait" for something to take place. This is something I am fully aware of.

I have felt like our church has been pregnant...and a 15 year pregnancy is a long wait. I remember DeeDee being so ready to get the twins out of her womb at week 39. That's how I feel quite often as I walk into my office at the church...ready to "give birth", ready to see God's plan take place at Pathway. Today was one of those days and amazingly God spoke to me about it..."Do I open the womb and not deliver the baby?" (Isaiah 66:9 MSG)

Maybe I should boil some water and get some clean towels?
