Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
My Infertility Journey
God goes beyond what we expect in how He redeems everything that we go through. Nothing that we experience in life is in vain, especially if we are living a life yielded to His pruning. He always has our best interests at heart, and the ultimate goal is to mold us to be more and more Christlike each day. 🙂
I had a pretty easy pregnancy, with no serious issues nor complications. I took necessary precautions, took care of myself and baby as best as I knew how, and entrusted the journey to God. After all, He had already seen us through our infertility journey, He would continue writing His story in our lives.
After my morning sickness faded in the second trimester, I made time for things I enjoyed and people that I cherished. I knew that things would be drastically different once baby joined us, so I was adamant about creating margin in my days so I could spend time with the people who mattered most to me. On weekends, I baked and cooked favorite dishes or tried out new recipes, and all in all, I had a very enjoyable time.
It is so amazing how God sweetly redeemed the heartbreaking memories of the failed IVF. One year after our egg extraction day, on our wedding anniversary – we were scheduled to see the Gynae for a check on our baby. 🙂
And exactly one year after the devastating call to inform me that my IVF procedure failed and I was not pregnant, God sent my ex-boss and ex-colleague to spring a surprise visit to my place, to bless me before I delivered baby Ellie. 🙂
Are these not the pure grace and goodness of God? October literally transformed from a month of disappointment and grief to a month of miracles and amazing grace. No surprise that it has become my favorite month of the year!
I will forever be in awe of His perfect timing and provision.
Thank you 🙂
:::As I end my 31 days Writing Challenge today, I want to thank each and every one of you who left encouraging comments on this blog and on my Instagram account (@snugglesnkisses). It really means a lot to me when you make time to share your thoughts and connect!
I pray that my journey has blessed you in some way and that you see how real God is.
In every season of our lives, we are all waiting for something. For some, the wait is longer than others. For some, the wait does not seem to have any end in sight.
We will never fully understand everything in this world, but as long as we have Him in our lives, we know He can be trusted.
p/s: God has laid upon my heart to do something new regarding this blog, and I am praying about it before I share it with all of you in due time. I am so excited to see what His plans are!
