A God of Miracles...

I have a friend who has struggled to conceive for a couple of years now. I really believed that her IVF was going to work and when she received the negative result, I was heartbroken with her. We met through blogging and have become friends through email. I feel like she has been a cheerleader for my team and I for hers...someone who you know is praying for you, during such a difficult process. Someone who is always there to encourage you. After she received her negative result, I immediately started praying that she would become pregnant and without treatment. I just knew that God would give this precious couple a child. Well...she emailed today and guess what...SHE'S PREGNANT!! Upon reading her email, I started crying and couldn't stop. I have been waiting for that email for several months now. I told her that I was going to have such a sweet time with God, this evening, just praising Him for His goodness! (Psalm 135:1-5) My heart feels incredibly full, right now. I don't know what God you serve, but I serve a God of Miracles. "He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children." -Psalm 113:9

There are so many of you that I still cover in prayer, daily. I truly believe that God will give you the desires of your heart, in His timing. Until then, we must "...Commit our way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." -Psalm 37:4-5

Love to all,
Jill

I pray that God gives you a child. You don't know me...I have followed your blog from the Weavers. I was blessed with a beautiful daughter 20 years ago through adoption and I feel like the luckiest mom in the world! I pray for you daily.
Love, from a mom

That is so great for your friend. Jill you are an awesome woman of God. I am not going to pretend to know what you are going through, but to see you so happy for others who are having babies is inspiring. I pray that God will bless you and Alex with a baby very soon!!!

What an AMAZING story and such a testament to God's good and perfect will and timing. He always knows what he's doing even when we want to scream and yell and plead with him to do it our way instead. I am so thrilled for your friend. I say the same prayers for you, my dear.
*hugs*

Well said!! Just because Cody and I are going through infertility does not mean that I am not so joyful when I find out someone is pregnant. It makes me so happy and so hopeful! Praise the Lord for your friend!
