Still Our Hope

This song "Jesus Came to Earth" is from the Sovereign Grace Music's Children album "Awesome God." I appreciate Sovereign Grace for teaching children (and adults) biblical doctrine throughout their music, rather than moralistic fluff.

Anyhow, I have to keep reminding myself that the Gospel is still our hope and not this pregnancy. I'm only 8 weeks today and I still struggle with fear this early into the pregnancy. But, then I repent of fear (over and over again), preach the Gospel to myself, and remind myself that if God should take one or both of them home to Heaven, then by His grace, our life will go on to His glory...simply because of the message of this song. All the while, I am also thanking Him constantly for making it to 8 weeks and praying to make it all the way to a healthy delivery! :)

Merry Christmas and please do celebrate the awesome truth that "Jesus Came to Earth!"

I stumbled upon your blog a couple of months ago and am so happy for you guys. You have been in my prayers. My husband and I are trying to decide on which clinic to use. Would you mind sharing how much the NEDC cost? I get very confused from their estimates online. Hoping you are feeling good and getting lots of rest.

I struggled with fear each and every pregnancy after my first miscarriage. God uses that though. We know that Perfect love casts out fear and you are biblically doing as God calls us to do. Call on that perfect love, confessing our fear and truly for me that could be several times an hour at times. I am happy to hear you are at 8 weeks and know that this entire journey will make you a stronger mother and one who is even closer to the Lord than you ever were before you received that 1st positive beta! I look forward to being with you throughout the next 7 months!
