As some of you may or may not know, JP and I have been on a three year journey to become parents to a sweet little babe. We've prayed, hoped, and dreamt. We've experienced pregnancy, loss, tumors, and infertility. At times, life has been incredibly painful but God is so gracious to us. One of the biggest lessons we've learned thus far is letting go and trusting. Letting go of our plans and embracing God's plan, and believing that God knows what is best for us. He is teaching us, day by day, what it means to wait on Him. If this isn't perfect timing (!) KLove's scripture of the day is this:
"Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD." Psalm 27:14
He's a good father, and perfect in all of His ways. Though none of us want to endure suffering, it is in those "valley" or "desert" times that Jesus takes us deeper in our relationship with Him.
Before you ask, the answer is no we are not pregnant. And likely we won't be for a little while, and that's ok. I share this with you because we have renewed hope in this journey to parenthood. We are holding onto God's promises and believing in His timing. About five months ago, it was suggested to me by my gynecologist that infertility testing was the next step for us, but we both felt it wasn't time yet. Two weeks ago my sweet husband agreed with me that it was time for an infertility consultation and testing through our naturopathic physician. Both of us have had our consultations and without going into much detail here on the blog, we are beginning to understand a little bit about our infertility. We have started the testing process and I'll be getting those first results tomorrow. Will you consider praying for us as we start this process? We don't know how long we'll travel down this road but we have peace and hope in Jesus. And for that, I am forever grateful.
I'm not sure why this sky made me pull over. Maybe it was hearing the positive news from my doctor the night before, maybe it was the fact that I had a fresh hope in my heart or maybe it was the fact that it was simply a Friday and the weekend was here. Regardless, this sky moved me. Thought I'd share.
Hope you have a great day. Be blessed.
