Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20
Years ago when we began the process of buying a business I kept having a scripture pop into my head over and over again. I knew it was a scripture, but I didn’t know where in the bible it came from and honestly I didn’t care. I didn’t even check. After a week or two of this scripture constantly popping into my head my sweet friend Sam sent me a text.
It said, “Morning! This was my daily scripture today, and I thought it was appropriate for you! Have a good day, love you!” Or something to that affect, but I was so taken back when I clicked the image. It was Ephesians 3:20! God was doing His best to get His word into my mind and heart, and used my friend to confirm.
I clung to those words while opening the business. Months later I created a Christian t-shirt line and once again the scripture kept coming to mind so I created a design just for it “Boss Lady” that has been one of our number one sellers.
However, being me I still didn’t truly get what God was trying to tell me. His Word got me through opening a business, starting a t-shirt line, but I still wasn’t letting it sink into my life.
Friday, March 24, 2017 it finally hit me like a ton of bricks. Happy bricks!
As I hung up the phone and bawled my eyes out (Not me at all, but pure gratitude) all I could think was…
NOW ALL GLORY TO GOD!
HE IS ABLE!
HIS MIGHTY POWER IS AT WORK!
HE JUST ACCOMPLISHED INFINITELY MORE THAN I COULD EVER ASK OR THINK!
If you know us personally then you know that we’ve been wanting a house to make a home forever. Literally, since before we got married our goal was to buy a house. I was that girl growing up that dreamed more about my future house than my wedding decorations. We tried constantly, yet always failed. Every time we got a step closer to our home we ended up 10 steps back. It finally got to the point that we just quit talking about it. Our family and friends were tired of hearing about it and so were we. We gave up.
Finally, out of nowhere it all aligned this year and we are proud owners of a beautiful home that is perfectly us.
Back to March 24th, it was Spring Break so I got the day off to spend with Kyle. We worked all morning on packing up the apartment, but that wasn’t what was truly on our mind. We had been waiting on a phone call all day long, and he finally zonked out on the couch in the afternoon. I had given up on getting the call that day, and sadly sat on the couch.
Finally, the phone rang. I ran to the bedroom to not wake Kyle, and shaking answered the phone and the conversation went like this…
The guy said “Hello is this Macey Rumsey?”
“Yes it is.”
He said, “Great, I got your blood work results for you.”
“Ok, Great” (I was really thinking “Please God!”)
He said, ” They came back positive.”
“OK………OK…so… you mean…. I’m pregnant?”
He said, “Yes m’am… (followed by BLAH BLAH BLAH)
I literally don’t have a clue what else he said, I was just trying to keep it together long enough to get off the phone.
As I said earlier for the first time in my life I couldn’t stop hysterically crying. I had previously thought of all kinds of fun ways to tell Kyle, but I didn’t care anymore. Once I pulled myself together to walk (more like run) to the living room I just jumped on him! Panicked he opened his eyes to see me bawling, and quickly became terrified. He had never seen me cry like that before, but then he realized the beaming smile. I said “It’s positive! It’s positive!”
We sat on the couch in awe of God for the rest of the day.
You see it may not seem like much to you, but we had been trying for two years to have a baby. With many doctor visits, many medicines, and a failed insemination in 2016 we prayed and prayed this one would work.
Everyone in our world knew of our desire for a home for the past four years, but not a soul had any idea of our deep desire for a child for the past two. We decided early on to keep it between the two of us, because when it was time we wanted it to be a surprise of pure excitement.
We sat on our couch on Friday, March 24, 2017 in complete awe of God. We had been so distracted by our desires and wants for a home and family of our own that we hadn’t paid enough attention to what God was saying…
I am able. My power is mighty. My power is for you. I will accomplish infinitely more than you could ever ask or think.
Our infinitely more is not only getting our perfect home, but having a beautiful baby to bring into this world. We would have never thought to ask or think for this perfect timing, but God knew.
He always knows. All glory is His.
This Live Simple Life may have plans that fall short, but God does infinitely more than we might ask or think.
P.S. I will fill you in on how we told everyone soon 🙂
