The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

I too know that I can BELIEVE HIM

I was reading a blog today that I have been following for a while. I just know that God has put me in touch with so many of you blogger friends out there for a very great reason. On the days that I may be struggling the most with our "infertility battle" then I will read something on a blog wether it be a post on someone elses blog or a comment some of you have left me and it can turn my whole day around. Well thats how it was when I read this:

" I felt confirmation this morning and heard Him telling me, "Deidre, don't you EVER doubt what I CAN do and I will never need another person's help to accomplish it! You can BELIEVE me!" You can read the blog post that I got this from here titled " I can BELIEVE HIM". Thank you Deidre for sharing those words that God spoke to you! I hope you dont mind me copying that over to my post.

You see putting my complete trust and faith in God has been and still is one the hardest things I have ever had to do. I still find myself questioning why Chad and I just cant get pregnant again. Should I or shouldnt I be going to the fertility drs. So So many questions. Then I read those words.... "Dont ever doubt what I can do and I will never need another persons help to accomplish it" WOW..... what else can I say?!?!?!

All I can say right now is God is so AWESOME, he is always there no matter what your struggle, and I know that I too can believe him. I must never ever doubt what he can do!!!

Thank you again Deidre for sharing.

Jennifer, I do not mind AT ALL that you would post about what I wrote. Praise to the ALL-KNOWING God that he knows exactly what we need WHEN we need it.

I struggled with infertility with BOTH of my girls and was told when trying to get pregnant with my 2nd that I would never have more children. BUT GOD ... in his infinite wisdom and sovereignty revealed He alone is worthy of my praise and devotion.

I don't know what the right road is for you ... whether it's through a fertility dr. or not ... I believe God can use anything to accomplish His plan and He may choose for you to follow Him that way ... and, He may not. You have to seek Him and His direction, but I do believe in the end, no matter what happens, we remember to praise the ONE who accomplishes anything in our lives.

I continue to pray for you in this journey. I read the most awesome quote yesterday that summed up how I feel most of the time and it's "There's a balance between wishing for something more and not ignoring what's already there." That pretty much sums up how I struggle through anything and reminds me of Phil 4:11 - to be content with where I am. I do believe that's the secret.

Love you, sweet friend!

I too like so many also struggled with infertility (you can read my 4/29/09 post "Hannah cried, Sarah laughed & I... well I") but please know that I am praying specifically for you & Chad because I know how stressful this all is.

If I may share 2 verses with you that I just recently read on a fav blog of mine:
"Delight yourself in the Lord & he will give you the desires of your heart" PS 37:4
"God is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine" EPH 3:20
WOW - what an awesome God we serve!!!

May the Lord bless you during this time whatever his path for you may be.
