There are certain people I pray for daily.
But some are closer to my heart than others.
I won't get into my whole reproductive history.
Cause that's a post for another day.
But I believe God allows us to go through
situations and trials so we can be refined.
As hard as it is at certain times, it does make us stronger.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4
After years of trying to have a child.
Years of disappointment.
Tears on the pillows.
Pain beyond the hurt.
I have a heart for those women who also struggle to conceive.
Or those who cannot conceive at all.
My prayers are focused on a few special ladies lately.
Sara and her husband David.
Ashley and her husband Nathan.
Ashton and her husband Nick.
I hear the hurt in the words.
When I read their post I can feel the deep void that's in their chest.
The longing to hold their babies.
But I can also sense hope.
I can see faith rising up.
I know God is up to something!
You have granted him the desire of his heart
and have not withheld the request from his lips. Psalm 21:2
Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Psalm 127:3
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
