We have a setback. It’s minor and may not impact our chances for conception this month but it is a challenge, nonetheless. Our only choice is to trust God’s timing and believe God will provide what we need. The reality is that if not this month, we will conceive in a future month. God put it on my heart a few weeks ago that we will conceive and He will see the pregnancy through to the live birth of a healthy child of God.
He did not tell me when it would happen, only that it would. And the Holy Spirit whispers to me daily that I must remain faith-filled because He is faithful; that I must rest in His promise; that I must remain in peace and continue to emanate joy, love and kindness to myself and to others; that anxiousness is a useless feeling, reserved for those with wavering faith; that He is my strength and my Rock and my portion, forever.
It is one thing to believe in God. It is another thing altogether to believe God.
On days like this one, when we’re closer to the time I will ovulate and uncontrollable circumstances prevent us from being intimate; when there’s a possibility we will miss our “window” of opportunity to procreate in this cycle, I want to be anxious and to fret and to worry. I want to feel discouraged and defeated but I know in my spirit, in my heart and in my soul that God is powerful beyond measure and that with Him all things are possible. So, I pray without ceasing and I praise with conviction. God will provide for me and my family. His love is unfailing. He is faithful!
