Abraham and Sarah...

As we begin our two week wait this cycle, I am reminded of Abraham and Sarah. For that matter, my hubby and I are FEELING like Abraham and Sarah as each year passes by. Here is their story...

In Genesis, God promised Abraham and Sarah that they would give birth to a son and that all the generations of the earth would be blessed through him. In the natural, this looked impossible because Sarah was ninety and Abraham was older than that! But they began to meditate on God and consider what He could do beyond the limits of the possible. Their faith opened the door for God to bring to pass what He had promised in their lives. When they considered God, He strengthened their mortal bodies so that they could conceive a child way beyond child-bearing years.

I've come to the realization that this is out of our hands. Our situation looks impossible, but I know that He can take impossibility and turn it into possibility. I've witnessed so many friends and family members receive gifts of impossibility with faith and confidence in the All powerful.

I am believing that our faithfulness and prayers will be rewarded, just like Abraham and Sarah.

Praying for you guys during this 2ww!! I know the feeling of waiting (and waiting and waiting!). It isn't fun, but in the end, it is so amazing to see how God grows you in the waiting time. Believing with you that this will be both of your times to be the parents God has created you to be!!!

I found your link on Kelly's Korner. I just wanted to let you know that I am lifting you and your husband up in prayer. I have been where you are and know what you are going through. My husband and I tried for 5 years before we finally got our miracle little girl!
