Nursing

Well. who knew nursing was going to teach me so much about God and myself. ...For those of you that need clarification, that would be the feeding baby type of nursing, not nursing like going to nursing school, which hilariously I once thought God was calling me too.k

It has defionatly taught me how selfish I am. Sometimes I just plain don't feel like sitting for 30 to 45 minutes nursing. Espicially in the middle of the night. But my little man needs me, and needs me to feed him. And he doesn't necessarily do it in my convenient schedule:). It has also taught me to learn to be patient and sit still. Sometimes I just want little man to hurry up...But I need to practice being still and patient and feeding my little man.

Now for the spiritual applications. Alex craves my milk every 2 hours on the dot...Hehe. It is like he has an internal clock. Peter says we are to crave the word like Alex craves my milk. Oh that I would be that desperate for the word of God...I need it in me..I need the belt of truth every minutes. I need to be walking in the truth for strength all day long.

In Isisiah, it talks about how a mom would not forget her nursing babe, and God does not forget us. I never ignore Alex's cries when he is hungry. I know he needs me. Think how much more God hears our cries, and gives us exactally what we need when we need it:)
