Some of my friends suggested that I share more about my personal life through my blogs. The reason I hesitate to write about myself is that I realize my experiences differ from yours, and God has you in a very different and unique set of circumstances. This month, however, I decided that I wanted to share an answered prayer, so you can rejoice with me.
A few weeks ago, Joshua, age 9, went to school for the very first time in big boy underwear. He has been wearing pull ups since he grew out of diapers and until Christmas break, he showed very few signs of readiness to toilet train. It’s not that we haven’t tried and prayed and tried and prayed some more.
Please God, Let Joshua be toilet trained by the time he is 5!
Please God, Let Joshua be toilet trained by the time he is 6!!
Please God, Let Joshua be toilet trained by the time he is 7!!!
Please God, Let Joshua be toilet trained by the time he is 8!!!!!
Honestly, before his last birthday in September, I don’t think I even asked. I know God will sustain me if Joshua always needs to wear diapers, but this month I am rejoicing because even though I said to God, “Not my will, but yours,” I am ever so grateful that this challenge may be reaching its end.
