Ok I am struggling with a very important decision and I can't seem to know if I am hearing God or if I am putting my own wishes in place of God's voice. Here is the gist; I am 38 and just gave birth to my second child in January. When I adopted my first son 7 years ago things were wonderful and I felt I knew exactly what I was suppose to do. Now I feel I should leave my career and be a stay at home mom. Not because my second son is one that I gave birth too but because he is our last chance at a child. He truly a gift from God considering science says he was not possible.
Long story short
6 yrs of fertility
7 yrs ago adopted beautiful son from Guatemala (he came home at 3 1/2 months)
tumor removed from uterus Aug 2008
pregnant May 2009
son born Jan of 2010
I have been a teacher for more than 15 years and have always loved what I do but due to budgets my job has changed and I still like teaching but not loving what I teach. Now I feel these are signs that I should stay home and enjoy the last few years of my first sons childhood before he turns teen and enjoy my new son.
How do you know when God give you signs or when you are trying to put your desires as his. Searching for advice and peace on this situation.
