Making the Seed Grow...

I had a little bit of a shock this week...I was THREE days late!! I am normally right on the money and when I was late one day, then two days, then three days...I nearly went into SHOCK. Unforunately, I am NOT pregnant, but I did enjoy the excitement and the possibility that my dreams were almost a reality. But of course, when I realized that I wasn't pregnant...I hit rock bottom...but after some prayers and meditation, I'm back to pushing forward waiting on the prize :)

Read this...

"The ones who do the planting or watering aren't important, but God is important because He is the One who makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work as a team with the same purpose."~1 Corinthians 3:7-8

The DH and I are working together as a team to create this new life that we so long to experience. BUT...it is not up to us. It is up to Him. Although we plant the seed and although we water the seed, it is up to Him to make the seed grow.


We are waiting on Him to make our seed grow...

Lianna,
I am so sorry to hear your news. Believe me, I have been there. However, you have seen Addelynn and Alexander and know that it CAN happen! Try and stay strong!
I am here when you need to talk :)

Lianna - As I read your entry for today, I immediately experienced those emotions with you. I can recall those days when there's a slight simmer of hope & then suddently it's gone. Please know that I continue to think of you each day. God does answer prayers & only He knows the plan. Don't give up.

I'm so sorry for the disappointment. I have had those moments of hoping and dreaming and then the devastating let down. It's so hard.

You are so right though...God is in ultimate control. He ALONE is the Creator and Sustainer of life. Praying for ya'll!

Oh Lianna, I'm so sorry. I can totally relate to how you are feeling. It's such a hard thing to go through. You're in my prayers!

Hey Lianna...I found your blog through Tedra. It will be nice to catch up with you!

Lianna-
I just wanted to say that I am praying for you. I did not have fertility issues, I had a problem with staying pregnant. I've been pregnant 7 times and I have one child. My first child passed away and I went through hell getting pregnant and staying that way in order to have Kennedy. She is my miracle and I thank God every day that Brian and I were blessed with her.

Baby girl, you are always in my prayers.

Christine said...

I'm sorry. I remember those days. Maybe next month. We can pray.

I know the feeling, been there several times. We will just wait together for our hopes and dreams to come true. He knows our deep desire and will bless us with babies in His time! I'm praying for you!!

Boy, have I been here! For the whole 18 months that we have been trying, I have been late EVERY SINGLE TIME but once, when I was a day early. It is so horrible...even when you are trying to be positive and realistic and not get your hopes up, it is impossible not to. One time I took 10 pregnancy tests (all negative) and my period was 8 days late and I was still convinced the tests were wrong and it wasn't coming. When it did I laid down on the bathroom floor and cried for hours!
Infertility is an emotional roller coaster, without the fun. I pray for myself and for you, that God will even out the ride for us.
Love you and praying for you, friend!
