Be more concerned with God's glory than your relief

I think if I would be more concerned with God's glory than my own relief, I might get some relief from my pain as a result. I know I am still her mommy, but one of the things I have struggled with is not being able to actively play the role of Abigail's mommy.  Not only did a part of myself die with Abigail, but also my hopes and dreams of being her mama.  It leaves me feeling like I have no purpose. If I would concern myself more with His glory, I know my sense of purpose would return.  He has left me here for a reason.  I have to remember that "the reason we breathe is to sing of His glory." I want to honor Abigail's life as much as possible by honoring Him.

Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
Psalm 115:1

  1. Oh how that touched my heart, How I wish sweet Abigail was with you. I know for both of us life seem long to be apart from our babies, but Heaven will be here before we know it. Until then, like you said Jesus has a purpose for you to be here. I love your love for Jesus it is so beautiful and refreshing. I am praying for you Holly, I know this is a hard weekend please email me if you want to chat or need a listing ear.((((HUGS))))
