I feel I shouldn’t be surprised any more when I see that one lonely line on the pregnancy test, but I still seem to be each and every time. Every month I hope and pray that this is the month we will be blessed with our miracle baby…and then nothing. It can be so disheartening and exhausting. Yet we remain hopeful that our time will come and my faithfulness remains strong. My four year old prays for a baby sister each night before bed and it warms my heart to know that he is believing for our blessing as much as his father and I. This reinforces my strength and faith, and it surprises me sometimes how sometimes it is my child who keeps me in check with my faith!
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Mark 11:24 NIV
As a Christian and throughout my TTC journey I have had to hold onto my promises from God, I know that He has a greater plan for my family and that they are more than I can fathom or imagine. I also believe in the promises that God has placed in my heart, the desire of our family to have another child will come into fruition in His perfect timing. Remembering this each month and praying and praising through this difficult time is a choice and decision I make. It is challenging, especially around that fateful day of the month, but I CHOOSE to be thankful for the blessings we have now and will have in the future.
“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart”
Psalm 37:4 NIV
