A friend of mine gave me a CD series called Living Beyond Disease by Michelle O'Donnell. The CD's discuss how God NEVER intended for us to go through pain, suffering, heartache, struggles, or disease.
Michelle also shares how we should EXPECT good things to happen in our lives and to stop dwelling on disease (in my life, disease is infertility). We should repent for the thoughts, words, and actions that we've committed that infer disease is a part of our lives, pray for forgiveness, and then change our thoughts, words, and actions toward what we expect. Michelle also recommends we repent, pray and ask for what we expect to happen for all of our families, friends and acquaintances that have had those same thoughts, words, or actions on disease.
When I started this blog, I titled it..."Growing Our Own Garden: Our Journey Through Infertility." The more I looked at the title, I realized that I was giving power to infertility. I was claiming that my husband and I are infertile. I was feeding the disease that consumes my life by declaring the reason for this journey as infertility.
So I took my first step in repenting, praying, and expecting a change in my life...I changed the title of my blog to "Growing Our Own Garden: Our Journey to Parenthood."
And I am determined to live my life BEYOND disease and embracing the Lord who will guide me continually and satisfy me in drought so I will be like a watered garden. ~ Isaiah 58:11
