TRY THE TEST





TITLE: The Crib

For those who are parents, I'm sure you've been through or are going through the baby 'sleep training' phase. For those who aren't, it�s not something to look forward to, because it entails a lot of wailing, and I'm not talking about your little angel. Well, my husband and I have been trying to get my son to sleep in his crib, which is right next to our bed, mind you, so he can soothe himself to sleep on his own. But he DESPISES it and will cry like there's no tomorrow rather than be subjected to sleeping in the darn thing. To keep a long painful story short, I would put him in his crib while he is still drowsy and let him cry while I stay close by, comforting him, but not taking him out of the crib. As much as it breaks my heart to hear him cry inconsolably for seemingly hours on end, I know that there will be a wonderful pay off- baby will able to handle sleeping on his own and Mommy will finally be able to get a full nights sleep, without looking like kung fu panda in the morning. I wonder how God must feel when he allows us to be in a difficult situation, that we can't bear and we cry out to Him to remove us from it. More often than not, He doesn't, because He knows we can handle it and will ultimately be beneficial for our spiritual growth. But, our great Abba stays close by, His Presence never leaving us, comforting us, quieting us with His love, letting us know that it will all work out for good. All the while, giving us just the grace and strength we need. As ecstatic as I will be when my son finally sleeps on his own, I'm pretty sure, God will be the proudest Daddy ever, when we come through our 'crib experience' stronger and mature, able to trust that God will never leave us, during our darkest hours. While, I'm still trying to figure out whether this 'sleep training' method will work for Daniel and I, God knows exactly what He�s doing, He doesn't make mistakes and His ways are perfect.

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
