Trusting in the Lord

Yesterday, another month of hoping came to an end.

Another month of praying for a baby and another month of the reality that my womb wasn’t bearing life.

This month also marked five years of trying to conceive.

Five of the most trying years of my life.  Five years of maybe next month…

Sixty times I’ve said…not this month.

And sixty-one times I’ve said… but I will trust in the Lord.

We’ll continue to pray and seek the Lord’s guidance as we yearn to grow our family.  And until then I’ll continue to cherish the gift of Moriah that He graciously gave me nearly two years ago.

My hope is in the Lord as I look forward to saying, again:

For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him.” 1 Samuel 1:27

Will you continue to pray with us, today?

    I am loving you through this! I know the pain that you are feeling. When we were yearning to conceive, I read that infertility is doubly as difficult because you are going through the grieving process in two ways…one every month, when you realize that you did not conceive that month, but also while you constantly move through the process (for you 5+ years…).

    I love your attitude, though. I know how easy it is to become bitter. Continue to praise God for Moriah, and praise Him for what he is doing through this journey. I will be praying for you…

    FYI: we put the full verse from 1 Samuel 1:27 on Little Miss’ dedication cake. Rest in His words.

    I really love your openness and your desire to conceive, some women take this for granted…I have not had any problems but thank God for that all of the time! I do have a friend who tried to conceive for years and years to no avail but she stayed obedient to God when she felt him urging her to go on like she had a baby (yep, she bought a carrier and baby bottles and even carried them around with her when people thought she was crazy) 10 years (or less and an unfortunate divorce later) she has 2 big ‘ol healthy beautiful boys- double for her trouble! So I will stand with you in prayer! It will happen!

    Oh my, this brought tears to my eyes because I know those words so well. I feel those same feelings every month. Our journey is only about half as long as yours, but still very painful and frustrating. Thank you for linking up, and I am praying for your right now.
