Our Journey – Faith and Timing

Happy MLK and inauguration day, lovelies! There has been a lot of thinking that has gone into this post. A lot of typing, deleting, retyping, deleting, typing, you get the picture. But today a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King struck me and so here I sit again trying to put into words what I’ve wanted to say for so long…to start finish this post.

MLKquote

For two years, we’ve been trying to conceive our first child – unsuccessfully. Turns out that I am one of the 6,000,000 women out there that are considered to have fertility issues. Our faith is in the Lord and we have taken several the first steps towards trying to have a family – without seeing the entire staircase, without knowing His plan for us. And we’re okay with that. We cling to His promises and we will continue to move forward and are hopeful that in His timing, we will have a family of our own.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance “ James 1:2-3

For now, we’ve taken a huge leap of faith when I recently gave my resignation at my full-time job. We felt that at this point in our journey towards starting a family this was the next step He was calling us to take. It’s a scary thought, but we feel His presence and hand guiding us. The next step in our journey we are uncertain of what that will look like, but we are confident when the time comes to make that decision He will have prepared us. If I’m being honest, this uncertainty has caused us to spend more time on our knees praying.

“Let your hope make you glad. Be patient in time of trouble and never stop praying” – Romans 12:12

So thanks for letting me share this part of our journey with y’all. We are blessed beyond measure, patient and faithful.

  1. As always Amy, your grace and poise astound me. This is beautifully written. All the rewriting was worth it!

    We will continue to pray for you through this and look forward to what the next step will be. God has been and continues to use you. I don’t know why you have to go through all of this, but I know He has amazing plans for you.

    • Thanks, Becky. We appreciate the prayers, love and support. I don’t know why we are going through this either, but I’m okay with that, knowing that He has big things in store for us and is faithful in His promises. Thanks stopping by! XO!
