Good Morning and Happy March🍀

This week, we celebrated our daughter's seventh Birthday, and what a joy it was 💗 I’ll be honest with you when I say that I sometimes feel like I’m living in the past when I retell our infertility journey. But the truth is, it is much more than just our story. It’s a true testimony of God’s faithfulness. And sharing God’s faithfulness never gets old!

Our story in its entirety is far too long for a devotional post and maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity to share more of it. But for today, I want to speak to the woman out there who is waiting...

Waiting on those two pink lines…
Waiting to make her husband the happiest man alive…
Waiting to deliver the great news to her parents…
Waiting to create a family…
Waiting to be a Mom…

Just typing the words, my eyes fill with tears and my heart with compassion. To you, dear sister, I need you to know that you are not alone!

There were so many years, so many pregnancy announcements, so many baby showers that I felt completely and utterly alone. Battling with infertility nearly destroyed me. Just when I thought I had it under control, que the hormones and a different phase of my cycle and I was circling back down a dark hole of isolation, disappointment, and shame. Fearing that family, friends, and even my husband would be terrified seeing me at my weakest, I often hid away. But I couldn’t hide from God and neither can you.

The truth is, God didn’t want me to stay stuck there and he doesn’t want that for you either. When I stopped trying to be strong on my own and attempting to hold it all together, I finally fell apart into God’s loving and gracious hands. Then and only then, could I truly receive what he had been trying to give me all along, his comfort.

“Even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.” -Psalm 139:10

Perhaps it’s not infertility, but is there an area that you’re struggling with accepting God’s love and comfort?

He longs for us to fall into his arms!
To admit that we need him!
To use his great strength in our weakness!

Girl— Take rest in his almighty hands TODAY! He’s holding them out, just waiting for you to land safely into them.
