Waiting for Grace is a series here on my blog about mine and my husband, Aaron’s, struggle with infertility. We want nothing more than to be parents but soon realized after we started trying that starting a family isn’t as easy as we would have hoped. We are waiting on a miracle. Waiting for Grace is a series where I write about our struggles, our hope, and our faith during this trying waiting period in our lives.
A little about Waiting for Grace:
I had the idea to write about our infertility journey for a long time before I ever posted anything on the internet. But at the time I was in a really bad, bitter place. I was hurt, frustrated, emotional and wanted to vent on my blog. However, I knew it would be a mistake to write anything about it publicly because my heart wasn’t where it needed to be in order to share the story I knew God could use to speak to people. For months and months I journaled privately about our infertility struggles while I thought and prayed about sharing our struggles publicly. When I told Aaron my idea of sharing our journey in a series on our blog, he also felt led to do so. However, we both agreed that if we were ever going to talk about our struggles, that it had to be done in a manner that would glorify the Lord and bring hope to people no matter what struggle they are going through in their lives. Speaking hope about our situation and remaining positive in my writing has been my main goal. Over time, writing about hope and promises has forced me to find the good, to look for the blessings in spite of our storms. And the amazing thing has been that because I have constantly challenged myself to stay positive, my attitude has changed to truly, deeply be thankful for this journey. Because without it, I wouldn’t have grown and become who I am now. I’ve come leagues from where I was when we first started – in my relationship with my husband, in my relationships and ministries with others, in my attitude, and in my walk with the Lord.
No matter what you are going through, we want our story and our journey to help bring hope and help build faith in the lives of others.
Thank you for taking time to read our story.
