Taking a leap of faith & waiting on the Lord!

For at least a week now (since learning of my spontaneous ovulation) I have been really feeling like the Lord wants to bless me with a miracle baby without using any kind of medical assistance at all. Every time I read, watch, or hear about the stories of barren women in the Bible (Hannah, Sarah, Rachel, among others) & how the Lord opened their wombs & they conceived, I really feel like it can & will happen to me also. I have also had other confirmations of this...

The biggest confirmation that is on my heart right now is how I sent a friend of sorts a message on an online board just 2 days ago. Actually I don't know her that well at all but after what she told me I would LOVE to get know her. Anyway, for whatever reason (I think it was the Lord prompting me to share actually), I told her that I felt like "the Lord wants to provide me a miracle w/o any kind of medical assistance at all which will be a HUGE miracle considering we haven't been able to conceive in 4 long years w/o medical help." She responded back, sharing her story of infertility & the use of medicine (specifically Clomid) in order to conceive her last miracle baby. Well, she recently got pg with another miracle in September with no help of medicine at all. Now, why did I share my story with her, considering I barely knew her? I don't think it was an accident at all... I think the Lord was speaking to me through her. I will conceive a miracle... I WILL & I just have to hang on to that.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23

So today was the big day that I talked to Mike about my feelings & it was decided that we would stop medical assistance for the moment. We are going to take a 6 month break & do nothing but pray about it & wait on the Lord. I really think or hope actually that I'll be pregnant sometime in the next 6 months but if not, in 6 months we will come back to the feet of Jesus & pray for guidance. What does He want us to do? Should we start back down the road of medical assistance or continue waiting? Whatever the Lord decides I will obediently follow.

Here's a video that says it all...


  1. After hearing this song on the movie Fireproof (amazing movie btw) it totally ministered to me during my time of waiting. I had lost my first baby and was waiting for the Lord to bless us again. I put this song on my ipod and swear I listened to it everyday. And everyday after listening i felt much better and my faith felt renewed.
    this verse also helped me

    Hebrews 11:6
    And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

    Continue to seek him, TRULLY seek him and follow his guidance, and believe that he will reward you!!! God is good!

  2. Thank you, Melissa! That verse is AWESOME! Oh, & I LOVE Fireproof... it's one of my favorite movies; Fireproof & The Notebook! <3

  3. You have a great blog! I saw it on justmommies and am so glad I clicked on it! Today I just decided not to start progesterone, which I was supposed to begin this cycle. I have been praying about it and this morning's sermon really spoke to me and I just feel like I'm not going to need it, so I am just waiting on the Lord. I am starting the Daniel fast on the 9th and hoping to have some breakthroughs through that. I will definitely be reading your blogs regularly! I pray that God blesses you and opens your womb. - Becca (crazybabybrain on jm)
