"God Moves"



Back in 2005, I purchased the "Worship God Live" CD from Sovereign Grace Music. "God Moves" was one of the two songs that I least listened to on the CD. I listened to the other songs numerous times as they drew my heart closer to the Savior, but at the time, I wasn't intensely suffering (life is always throwing curve balls, but I wasn't in the valley, like I am today). Five years later, I am listening to this song over and over again. Each word describes my heart so perfectly. I especially love the line that says "Behind a frowning providence, He (God) hides a smiling face." The song has been updated by Sovereign Grace from an old hymn written by William Cowper.

I'm not returning to my "normal" blogging anytime soon, but will post some of what God is teaching and doing in my life right now as I feel led to post. I can most definitely say, that in spite of the pain, He is doing a great work in my heart and I'm slowly gaining renewed hope...not so much about our 3rd transfer, but just about filling our home with children in some amazing way that He already has planned. I'm not clinging to this 3rd transfer resulting in a pregnancy and birth. Yes, I believe God can do that. But of course, He will have His perfect way no matter the outcome. I'm not dwelling on it. In fact, whenever I think about the upcoming transfer, I'm intentional about refocusing my thoughts on Jesus and not the transfer. The reason for this is because, HE alone is my HOPE - not embryo adoption.

Jennifer, I just e-mailed a mutual blogging friend that I have wanted to e-mail you,but didn't have your address. I think of you and pray for you often. Would you share your next transfer date? I want to pray specifically for that. I am glad you are sharing your walk through this storm that is filled with rays of hope. You are an encouragement to all of us. Many hugs--Shannon

Thinking of you! Yes! HE is our hope!! It is so difficult not knowing what will happen and it is hard not to dwell on that. I'm so sorry about your FET's. The Lord is holding you, he's by your side. Love, Rachel
