My verse today was 1 Thessalonians 5:18. Just thought I would share my heart.
"Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."
We all have something in our lives...that thing that makes us think, 'if this would work out, everything would be perfect!' Of course when I read this, my mind immediately goes to the fact that I'm supposed to be thankful for my infertility. The verse is very clear, it's God's will that I be thankful in ALL circumstances of my life. It's so easy to be thankful for the good...the things that make me happy. It's not so easy when it comes to the difficult things. God wants me to praise Him for this thing that makes me cry on a daily basis...the want to conceive a child.
I can't say that I've got this down but I can say that I continue to trust God's best during this time in my life. I'm doing my best to develop an attitude of gratitude...even for the not-so-easy things, like infertility. He has taught me so much already and if He continues to make me wait for a child, I can only believe it's because He still has something to teach me in all of this.
Today, I thank Him for what He has taught me up to this point and I count my infertility as a blessing!
We've come a long way, baby. :)
Love to all,
