My Faith and Our Children's Fate

After Shannon at Room for More asked us to answer a few questions about our FETs and our faith, I thought I'd share one of my answers with everyone else too. Shannon asked "What Scripture are you holding close to these days?"

In addition to Psalm 113:9 that I shared with you guys last week, I am also clinging to another verse...

As I was being fearful and doubtful after the transfer on Sunday, Aaron said something that has stuck with me the rest of the week, "Your faith could determine our children's fate." Ouch! And then he quoted a portion of these verses "But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." - James 1:6-8 (Now, we realize that the context of this passage is regarding asking the Lord for wisdom, but we believe there is also application for all prayers in these verses.) So, unlike my last FET, I have been constantly choosing to believe that God is answering my prayers with a "Yes" and if he doesn't, then that is HIS sovereign choice, but my role right now is to believe and not doubt!

Wow. I'm totally convicted. I'm VERY guilty of being full of doubt. It's my protective mechanism. But you are SOOOO right. Jesus -- forgive my unbelief. I choose to pray with great faith and expectation that you have heard all of our cries for a pregnancy and that You are answering them with a YES! And if not, Jesus, may we continue to still trust you. Amen.

I noticed a huge difference this last cycle when I just refused to live in fear and "what ifs" but just to trust. God already knows how many days each of these little ones has on this earth, but the state of your heart and trust will better equip you to hear what the answer is. Praying for you as you wait!
