Grace and Truth- November 25

But God was present with me when my map had no north. I felt small and weak, but God saw me as His lovely little sparrow.
— Leslie, Scraping Raisins

This week's featured post for Grace and Truth is by Leslie, who writes at Scraping Raisins.  It's called, This Was Not the Plan.  Leslie, thank you for being brave and sharing this precious story about you and your newborn son's time in the N.I.C.U.  God is present with us, always, even when things don't go according to plan.  I, too, experienced something very similar when my son was born.  It was hard, but God met me in that painful place, just as he met Leslie in hers.  
Thank you for linking with Grace and Truth last week, Leslie.  I imagine that these words can be of great comfort to others who facing difficulties right now and I encourage all of you to go and read, This Was Not the Plan.
