Let Go and Let God
April 6, 2021
My husband and I began trying for a family in 2014. After a year with no success, we started pursuing fertility treatments. Two years later after our failed IVF we decided to let go and let God. We had been so focused on growing our family that I felt we were losing our relationship with God and just being us so we decided to focus on growing our relationship with God and each other. We found a place of peace for the first time in years.
In January 2019 my sister told me that she was led to pray for me this year and presented me with a card that she also had as a reminder to pray for us and our family. Psalms 113:9 was written on the card, which says, “He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.” I read this every day and confessed it with my mouth. God surprised us in March 2020 when we found out we were pregnant with our miracle. Being pregnant during a pandemic was nothing short of stressful but knowing that this was all part of God’s plan gave us peace and we welcomed our sweet healthy boy in November. He was absolutely worth the wait.
During our waiting, being a part of Moms in the Making prayer partners was such an encouragement. I also appreciate receiving prayer through the live prayer sessions during the beginning of the pregnancy and sending me encouragement to overcome the anxiety I was feeling. I am so grateful!
