I began this blog in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of TWO beautiful baby boys. We know that our prayers were answered by a loving Heavenly Father who made us wait longer than we ever expected. Now, looking back, I can finally thank Him for the heartache and appreciate the pain.
So, I have finally found enough courage to add my ticker to this page. I have made it to a milestone, 9 weeks. With my last two pregnancies, I never made it this far. That is a bit relieving, but I still have moments where the future seems so uncertain. I have been meditating on God's word regarding my doubt. I found this bible verse today, and it was as if God Himself pointed it out to me. It is Jeremiah 29:11
I know the plans I have for you....plans for your welfare, not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Per Be.th Moo.re's excerpt from today's entry of her book Breaking Free Day by Day:
We often see ourselves as having such fragile, breakable souls. We live in fear of that which we are certain and convinced we cannot survive. But as children of God we are only as fragile as our unwillingness to turn and hide our face in Him. Our pride alone is fragile. Once it shell is broken and our hearts are laid bare, we can then begin to sense the caress of God's tender care.
Wow! That spoke wonders to me heart. There is another verse that a friend shared with me about hope.
It is Romans 15:13
Now the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and PEACE in BELIEVING, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Praying for us all to hide our face in Him during times that we feel fragile. Praying that we are filled with Hope and Peace in Believing that God is in control.
