There is a yearning in my heart Lord that just never goes away
I come before your throne of grace and bow my knees to pray
I know you see my longing Lord and you hear my constant cry
But Lord this empty feeling makes me feel so barren and so dry
I want to be a mother Lord and hold babies in my arms
To gaze into their faces and be won by all their charms
I need to feel their chubby cheeks as I brush them with my kisses
Oh Lord please hear my prayers to you and grant these heart felt wishes
I feel like Hannah of long ago who begged you for a son
She laid it all before you Lord, and you gave her more than one
She dedicated him to you…and I will do this too
For every blessing from above is sent to us from you
I know you have a plan for me…and may I be content
Not my will but thine oh Lord…I yield, humble and spent
Perhaps there is a child out there who needs me like no other
I am willing Lord to raise that child, and hear him call me mother
Whatever you decide dear Lord, I trust your perfect will
I just need grace from day to day to climb this rocky hill
For 8 long years we’ve waited Lord and looked to you for grace
We’ve prayed to see a miracle from the One who hung the stars in space
May I be a faithful witness Lord and share your love with others
Especially with those who just like me are longing to be mothers
No matter what, you are the King, deserving of our praise
So I will raise my arms to you throughout the coming days
You tell us to delight in you… and these things will come to be
Oh Lord I do delight in you…and may you be pleased with me
This is my Psalm, a song to you, my heart’s desire and my prayer
I know your peace will come to me, and I can find rest there!

Please Meet My Beautiful Friend Megan! She Has The Most Beautiful Eyes...The Window To Her Beautiful Soul!
I have a sweet Christian friend named Megan, and she and her husband Kyle have been trying to conceive for 8 long years. My prayers are going up on their behalf...and I hope they will be able to become a family one day soon through conception or adoption.
A very nice lady named,Jen Young...who sells Thirty-One Gifts, has decided to do a fundraiser for Kyle and Megan, and it will go on until August 13th. (Thirty-One Gifts is a faith based company based off Proverbs 31. They offer stylish and affordable totes, purses, and accessories to help make every day life easier.)
You can win this purse! You will be entered into a drawing if you make a purchase!
I am so excited to join in and help, by making a purchase, and also by posting about it here on my blog, and on Facebook.
I would appreciate it so much if you would click on the link and read their story, and see if you are led to help out. And if you cannot make a purchase...please pray for them to be able to conceive or to adopt...and that God will provide the finances that will be needed.
Prayer is important...and prayer changes things! God wants us to bear one anothers burdens, and to pray for other people and for their needs. It would be wonderful help if you could share her link, or her Blog Button on your blog and/or on facebook. And would you please leave her a comment of encouragement and a promise to pray for her!
Thank You...And May God Bless You!
