Ask and you shall receive...

Hello world, 
It's been a while I made a post featuring my daughter - Zuri, but this mommy and me cuteness we had going on in our twining outfits from PatPat Clothing begged for a post such as this to be made.

My Zuri will be turning two in just a few more weeks, and I have certainly been getting all the feels. How is time flying so fast? Have I really been her mom for this long? Why does it feel so long and so short all at the same time? 

You see, when I first found out I was pregnant, a part of me really knew I wanted the baby to be a girl, but that thought was immediately replaced with heavy prayers and desire for a healthy baby. I remember chastising myself for having the slightest thought and trying to wish for a particular gender! The audacity! The African Christian in me could not believe I dared to ask God for the gender of my baby! 

As much as I could, I took the idea off my mind even when I knew deep down inside of me that God doesn't work like that. He's completely fine with us telling him what we want, because after-all, he knows us from the inside out and has given us free will to ASK, so that we can RECEIVE!

When it was time to find out the gender of our baby (watch that video here), I was anxious and excited all at once. I kept saying it would be a boy. Whenever anyone would ask me what gender I wanted the baby to be, I would reply that "I only want a healthy baby" While quietly thinking, I want a healthy baby girl

 After we found out that our baby would be a girl, I just knew that God had an interesting sense of humor and must have been laughing at me all along thinking to himself why I was denying myself of  boldly asking him with my whole chest for the things I wanted. 

At this point I have a question for you!
While reading this, did something pop up in your head?
 Is there something you're not asking God for with your whole chest? 
Can you do me a favor and key in to his word to ask for everything you want and desire from him? 

The truth is, when I started to write this post, I was convinced it was going to be about our cute outfits and my mommy-hormones talking all about my baby turning two years old soon, but the more I wrote, the more I realized that this post was not about me at all. It was meant for YOU. Have FAITH and stop trying to limit God. He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ever ask or think.

Asking God for what you want is completely alright and you should not apologize for doing so.

That's it for now,
Till later, God Bless.

    This reminded me of a time I had a wish to have kids by 30.God being so good my wish is coming true and I can't believe I didn't even fervently pray about it. It was wishful thinking. Now I have to purposely ask God for what I want cos He is able to do exceedingly above all my expectations. Thanks for this reminder. Yummy mummy and cute daughter Zuri.
