What an exciting start. Hi, my name is Inneke and I am a stay at home mommy who’s dedicated to walking alongside our Father’s Holy Spirit in my journey as a mom, wife and daughter of the most high God.
This morning I woke up with an extra skip in my step, my baby boy slept through the night for the first time! And praise God, the Holy Spirit is the best sleep therapist ever! I have been desiring a full night’s sleep, and last night I decided to ask Holy Spirit what to do. So, we had our normal sleep routine and off to bed we went, but when my youngest woke little more than an hour later I knew I had to be sensitive to what Holy Spirit was showing me, and this is what we did:
We cuddled with lots of tears because usually I would top him up whenever he would wake during the night. We were lying there in the dark, doing everything Abba showed me until my little one’s cry calmed down and Holy Spirit showed me he was now aware of the fact that Mommy wasn’t going to nurse him right now. It was hard for me to hand him over to Daddy, but I could sense that Daddy was also partnering with Holy Spirit. I had that same happy-sad-emotion I had the first time Daddy took him from me eleven months ago.
Milestones are awesome on their own as is, but this one was extra special because the ultimate comforter, my little boy’s creator, was guiding me every step of the way; it made me choke up a little. Thank you Jesus for this gift of your presence. Sweet dreams Mommies!
