The Bible and the God of the Bible offer us a story meant to tell us who we are and why we are here and what our lives are about…This is the story. It is the story that the Bible offers to you. Inviting you to make this story the story of your life. 

-The Lamb of God, Nancy Guthrie

I just started going through Nancy Guthrie’s Bible Study, The Lamb of God, with some ladies in my community and I am loving it. As I have been reading through Exodus I am seeing the Old Testament in a whole new way once again. Up until the last few years the OT hasn’t been much more than Sunday school stories and Bible history to me. I know the stories but I’ve been totally missing WHO it is all about…WHO the OT is pointing to…a great Savior.

I always wish I could see “behind the scenes” in my own life and this is exactly what we get a peek into as we read about the enslaved Israelites and the life of Moses as he went from living in the great Egyptian palace to the lowly job of shepherding his father-in-law’s flock. Forty years. Forty years of nothing happening. What was God doing? And really, where was God? There was a lot of suffering going on and a lot of waiting without hearing anything from God. And while my waiting and suffering hasn’t even come close to this forty year scene we read about in Exodus, I feel like I can totally relate to the wondering…

God where are you?

And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel-and God knew. Exodus 2:24-25

God heard.

God remembered.

God saw.

God knew.

Sometimes we think God doesn’t hear us, or that he doesn’t care, or that he has even forgotten about us. But he knows our every thought and hears our every word. He loves us more than we can imagine. And he never abandons His children. We might not “see” or “feel” God working out His plan in our lives, but He’s always there and He’s always faithful to His promises. He might just be waiting for the right time…which is often so different from our ideas and timing, right?!

And then, after forty years of shepherding, we read that God calls Moses, who had definitely screwed up in the past and seems to have been forgotten, by name.

…God called to him out of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Exodus 3:4

Can you imagine what that was like? The God of the universe calling you by name? God knew exactly where Moses was and was seeking him out. We think maybe Moses has been disqualified or forgotten because of taking matters into his own hands and killing the Egyptian (Exodus 2:12), but God still has plans to use Moses to accomplish His purposes and deliver His people. He tells Moses of His plan and reminds Moses of who He is…I AM (Exodus 3:13-14).

I think that is exactly the reminder I need too. My story is so much more about God and so much less about me. As we get closer to meeting this new little one I find myself wondering what my story is going to look like in this next chapter of my life. What is God about to do in our family. Familiar questions and anxiety start creeping in. And while I am confident that He is going to prepare me for what is ahead, I am reminded that the important thing is that I keep my eyes on I AM. He is the one who will fill my story with meaning no matter what my abilities or circumstances look like.

The more your story is about this rescue from bondage, this Savior God sent, this God who has come down and revealed himself, the less your story will be about you and your failures or achievements, your abilities or inadequacies, your circumstances, opinions or questions. This is the story that enables you to make sense of your suffering and make much of your Savior. It is this story, and only this story, that can fill your story with meaning that will last forever.

-The Lamb of God, Nancy Guthrie

I forgot to mention that last week I was featured in the My Everyday series over on Kelli and Vanessa’s blog. I am praying that this little peek into my story will point others to WHO my story is really all about. You can read the interview here.

    Jody - I just finished the Pentateuch and from Exodus on it’s constant sacrificing and blood on the altar. It all screams Jesus. It all points to the cross. And as God is setting up this system of sacrifice he knows what is coming. He knows the Son is going to be required as the ultimate sacrifice. I can’t even imagine.ReplyCancel

to cali

We had to leave Daddy behind on our trip to Califronia. None of us were very excited about that. I hate that he had to miss out on this trip and the boys experiencing California. But that is life sometimes. It was just too hard for him to get away and we knew I couldn’t wait much longer with the baby coming to make this trip. So off to California without Joel we went. The great news was that my mom was with us on this end of the trip. It was so wonderful having her help between juggling the boys and luggage and my huge stomach that bumped into everything. Airplanes were not made for pregnant mamas with two toddler boys. Griffin was my airplane buddy and Levi was Grammy’s airplane buddy. At one point Griffin looked back and decided Levi and Grammy were having more fun…so he climbed over the seats and joined them. And for a few minutes it was quiet and I had two seats to myself…and then Griffin was done and climbed back over.:) We made it with no problems and our California fun began.

going home

We were on our own on the way home. Luckily I had learned a few things about what I could and could not handle and made sure my hands were a little more free on the way home. We sent the top left picture to Joel to tell him his crazies were finally coming home. We were all pretty excited to see him again. The boys did great on the plane. When we got to Denver we found out our plane had been delayed two hours which meant we had three hours to kill instead of one. It was nap time and we were all tired so that was interesting. There were lots of airport shenanigans happening. Entertainment for all who saw us that day.

IMG_5868

They did great anytime we were walking around but the second I tried sitting down…let’s just say it wasn’t good. Our gate was packed as there were several delayed flights and everyone was waiting to depart from the same place. Thankfully there was a moving walkway right in front of the gate. The boys thought it was the best thing ever…and it did the walking for me which I thought was the best thing ever. So we rode the moving walkway about 100 times as we waited for our flight. The boys made lots of friends along the way. I received a lot of sympathetic smiles…I must have looked weary. And everyone kept asking the boys if they were having another brother. We were so glad to finally get on the plane and know that daddy would be waiting for us at the other end.

sleeping

We were on one of those little tiny planes on the way back to Wichita. The boys were on one side of the aisle and I was on the other…until Griffin crawled into my lap. And then they both fell asleep.

IMG_5879

I could barely wake up the boys when we landed. I was wondering how in the world I was going to carry them both off the plane. Haha. And then the sweet stewardess looked at me and asked what she could do to help me get off the plane. Such a blessing. So I got the boys off and to the stroller and she carried my bags. And then we were finally reunited with daddy. Blurry but so sweet.

I was so thankful for a mostly uneventful trip and the funny but sweet memories that I will have of traveling with my two boys.

And now for lots of beach pictures….

    Michelle from Australia - I’m glad you made it Jess. In the past 10-1/2 years, our Not So Little anymore Miss G has done 47 flights. And quite a lot of those between Brisbane and the USA on our trips backwards and forwards to America. Not a bad effort for a kid with MAJOR lack of attention issues. I can say it gets easier with practise. I can also say that although I endeavour to be extraordinarily considerate to all those around me, kids will be kids and no matter how hard I try, if she’s not going to co-operate, me stressing is not going to make the flight easier on any of us. Be proud that you made the trip and for getting home solo. Hooray!ReplyCancel

    Mary Ann - I agree…you are brave to get on a plane with 2 boys and being pregnant. So glad some people were so kind and helped you. I have a hard time just getting me on a plane, let alone do it with children. But as moms and grandmothers, we do what we have to and I’m sure even though it was exhausting, you would do it all over again in order to spend time with your family. It is so fun to go on trips but even more fun to return home to open arms. I’m sure your husband missed you all terribly but I can tell he was sure happy to have you home. Good times…good memories. Can’t wait to see your new little one…I’m as excited as if I knew you personally or was family. Take care and get some rest!! (LOL – cuz I’ll bet that is hard to do.)ReplyCancel

They have the best daddy. So thankful for how he leads our family, loves us well, works so hard, and always makes us laugh. We all adore him.

kittens

We celebrated Father’s Day tonight with Joel’s family at his sister’s house. They had some kittens running around the farm and my boys were in love. I don’t know if the kittens liked it so much, but they sure loved holding them. I’m not really a cat person, but I think my boys might need some kittens on our farm someday. They were way too cute.

Well, hi there.

It has been awhile. So much has been happening around here. And I am so very tired…because of two very awesome but energetic little boys…and a tiny babe that we are getting super excited to meet (only six weeks left!). But I thought it was time for a little update. A very random update. Here are a few things to catch you up on…

MIN-ZRR-GCP-002H_A_APDF

First, the winners of the Minted giveaway are…

Michaela Kruli & Alissa Reynolds

Congrats ladies! You should have an email from me with you $100 credit code sometime today. Yay! I am working on picking photos for the Heart Snapshot Mix Photo Art. I can’t wait to get it!

levigriffin room

There has been some major room rearranging going on around here. Levi’s room (on the left) is turning into the baby’s nursery. And Griffin’s room (on the right) is now the boys’ shared room. Furniture has been moved, crib taken down, bunk beds set up, and some painting is happening today. Thankfully, my pregnancy brain was thinking clearly enough to remember to take pics of Griffin’s nursery before I tore it apart…so some room tours should be coming soon. Nothing like a nursery tour two and a half years late, right?!;)

IMG_0963new

The boys and I took a trip to San Diego to visit my parents. We loved our time with them and had so much fun. I have so many pictures to share from our beach adventures…hopefully soon. And apparently the Cali sun was a little too bright for Levi in this one.

bunkbeds

While we were gone, Joel set up bunk beds for the boys. They were so excited. They have been talking about sharing a room and their new beds for months. I am so grateful they love each other…most of the time. So when we got home we jumped right into the transition of sharing a room. They have actually done pretty well. I am still trying to figure out nap time but they are doing great at night. Yay!

potty training

We decided while we were in the midst of all these transitions why not throw in one more and potty train Griffin. Sounds reasonable, right? Ha, ha. Actually, I was dreading potty training  so much. Griffin carefully selected his Planes undies and was so excited about the whole thing. He always wants to be just like Levi, which sometimes causes a lot of drama but was very helpful in this case. Levi has been such a sweet cheerleader for his brother and Griffin has done awesome! I have used the 3 Day Potty Training method for both my boys and it has worked great for us. Obviously, I haven’t tried anything else…so I have nothing to compare it to…but what I love is that you are pretty much done with diapers and potty training in three days…even at night! Also, just in case you are wondering this is our favorite potty chair. We’ve tried others and this is by far the best. You are welcome. The last night of potty training we took the boys to the rodeo. I almost stayed home with Griffin because I wasn’t sure how he would do, but he loved the rodeo and after visiting the bathroom a million times he managed to even stay dry. So we are diaper free around here…at least for six more weeks!

The rest of our summer has been filled with lots of time outside, mud, rainy days (so thankful for those!), planting our garden, tractor rides, toads, frogs, worms, more mud, and lots of baths. Between all the mud and potty training my washing machine is running all the time. If you want to see more of our everyday adventures (since I am not so good at blogging these days) you can follow me on Instagram. I am @jessmcclenahan

2_The_Lamb_of_God

What are you doing to stay in the Word this summer? I was already being lazy and making excuses about my quiet time so I was so thankful to start a new Bible study to help keep me accountable. My friend Julie and I are leading a community Bible study in our area again this summer. We started it last summer and it was so encouraging to me! We are doing the second book, The Lamb of God, in Nancy Guthrie’s series, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament. We just finished the first chapter and next week we dive into the study of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers in Deuteronomy. I’ve already been so challenged as I’ve started reading through Exodus. Do you want to join me? I’m not doing anything “official” on the blog this year, but if you want to join me order a book today and get started. I’ll probably be referring to this study on my blog and Instagram throughout the summer as we go through one chapter each week…that is if I ever start blogging again! Let me know in the comments if you want to join me…or tell me what you are doing to stay in the Word this summer…I’d love to hear!

This is Finnley. Isn’t she darling? She is in Griffin’s Sunday School class at church and is the hospital fighting kidney failure due to complications with E. Coli. There was another little girl from our church fighting the same thing and we are so thankful that she has gone home now. Praise God! But we are continuing to pray for Finnley and would love if you would pray too.

IMG_6106

Finn’s sweet and talented aunt, Lori, made this print for her. It is now available for purchase and all the proceeds go to the Finnley Walter Benefit Fund to help pay for medical expenses. Such a cute print for such a great cause!

I think that’s about all. I told you it was going to be random. Thank you so much for all your name suggestions you left in my last post. I knew you could help us out! We still haven’t decided on names for sure but we’ve got a pretty good list going. And we still have six weeks, right??? Somehow we will decide on a name for this sweet babe who will be here before I know it!

Happy Friday!

    Meggie - Loved this update! Thanks for sharing what y’all have been up to. =) I think the biggest, most intentional thing I’ve done this summer to stay in the Word is to make it my primary reading. I’m finishing up one other book right now, but that’s it. I’ve become so busy (and tired!) with my 3 little guys that it has been HARD getting up and ready before them with time to read my Bible and have a few minutes of quiet. And earlier this summer I felt convicted about “reading for pleasure” every now and then but neglecting my Bible. I’ve loved reading through the Gospel of John. Not sure what I’ll do next but I’m really enjoying just reading my Bible for pleasure.ReplyCancel

    Did you know that there were actually 9 kiddos who ended up with the e.coli from church? 3 ended up in the hospital with 2 of them developing into HUS. What a difficult time this has been and still continues to be.

    Diane taylor - Hey Jess – sorry I have not commented in awhile either. And I have no excuse!!! It is really hard to find the time for my Bible reading but lately I have made time whenever I can. Early morning, late at nite….whenever I can. I love my Jesus Calling calendar – reading it feels like a true conversation with Jesus. I got my parents one for Christmas (in large print of course!) and my mom says they read the day’s passage aloud together. That makes me smile :) A gift they use every day. The next book I want to read is Love Does…..have you read it? I am so happy for you with your third baby coming. I include your family in my daily prayers. Yesterday was such a hard day for my son Jonathan’s dad – but he made it thru, we are missing Jonathan more as time goes by.

    Take care of yourself and enjoy these summer days!

30 week collage

Last week before I left for California Joel took the last picture in my collage…at 30 weeks. This week marks 31 weeks. Only nine weeks to go and I am feeling like this sweet babe is going to be here before we know it. We are getting so excited to meet him/her. I have done absolutely nothing to prepare. Joel set up new bunk beds for the boys while we have been gone, so the room rearranging can officially start when we get home. Lots to do after we get back tomorrow and lots of changes ahead!

This time around we are having more trouble with girls names than boys names. I guess we must just be in that boy mindset since there are two little boys running around our house. So, I need your help! Nine weeks to go and we need to start narrowing down a few names for this little one. Any suggestions? I would love to hear some of your favorites. Or names (boy & girl) that you think would go with Cora, Levi and Griffin. I’m hoping you can help me out…and maybe we can decide on some names this week!

    Sharon - As a mom of all boys and a grandma to a grandson, (I can’t buy a girl – lol, but I wouldn’t change all the boys in my life for anything!), I tend to think boy names.
    I think with all you’ve been through and the light beacon you’ve become for so many, “Christian” would be a wonderful name for a possible new boy at your house. :)
    I love that you’re having a “surprise”, it’s fun to meet him or her on their actual birthday!ReplyCancel

    Adrienne Timm - First time commenting, but I had to add our children’s names as think they would go well with your children’s names: Alexander (called Xan), Caroline (Carrie), and Natalie (Nat). We also never found out and each time found ourselves looking at a different set of names. For our youngest, we starting listing every name that our friends had used and both went “hmm” when we got to it. Thankful that my friend was excited for us to use it. She also liked being the only one who knew one of the possibilities. Praying for your family and this new little baby. Thank you for all the ways you help point your readers to Jesus and the love of God.ReplyCancel

The name we finally chose was Annalise which means “blessed by God’s bounty”. Her birth was very quick and my husband had to catch her which makes having a girl and a name with strong meaning that much more special! I don’t hear of too many Annalise’s and we live MILES away in Ontario, so no worries of copy-ing! :D (also there are variations of the spelling!)ReplyCancel

    Alicia Wakely - Hi Jess. I’ve been following your blog now for about a year. On March 16 2013, my firstborn daughter, Amelie Grace, was stillborn at 37 weeks gestation. A friend recommended your blog to me, and I found comfort in reading about your Cora. I fell in love with your little girl… I think she’s just beautiful! And so also, I fell in love with her name. 11 months after giving birth to my Amelie, God blessed us with a second daughter, Cora (Joy)- the name I fell in love with because of your sweet girl. She was born Feb 13 2014- now 3.5 months. So if you have a second little girl, I am recommending the name Amelie. It means industrious or hard-working, but I only chose it only because I thought it sounds so beautiful. Grace because even though she died before we got to say Hello, she was and is a gift we never deserved whom we look forward to spending eternity with. We so look forward to introducing our Cora to her sister, and meeting your sweet Cora. Al this to say, if you have another daughter and like the name Amelie, we’d be honoured for you to use it. Praying your pregnancy and labour go smoothly.ReplyCancel

    Suzette - My nieces are Meryl, Piper, and Emma…love them all.

    I would choose a 2 syllable name since Cora, Levi, and Griffin are all 2 syllables and 2 syllables goes well with your last name.

    Forgive me if this is a repeat comment…I didn’t read all of them.ReplyCancel
