My husband and I decided to start trying back in February and come March, when I was not pregnant, I was quite upset. I knew the likelihood of conceiving the first month out of the gate was very slight, however, there was still that glimmer of hope. I was quietly praying to God that this be His will entirely and not my own. As I continued praying, I heard the word ‘August’. It stopped me in my tracks and I repeated the word in a state of confusion. I asked God to repeat this if it was truly coming from Him (a little discernment trick I like to use) and again I heard the word ‘August’. I wasn’t too pleased about it at the time, being that August was still 5 months away, but I stowed it away for safekeeping just the same. I did share this revelation to one close Christian friend who was on the ‘trying to conceive journey’ with me at the time. I didn’t even share it with my husband until after we learned we were pregnant. My husband suffered a very serious toe injury after he cut and broke it on a lawn mower in mid-June. It forced us to take a two month break from our efforts and we were able to start trying again in, you guessed it, August. In the back of my mind I was thinking about how the timing of everything came together and the fact that we were back to trying in August. Wouldn’t you know, that’s when we conceived, I guess God was right again!
I offer this story of our wonderful blessing in the hopes that all of you reading this will believe in the great hope we have in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He does love us and He does want to provide everything we want and need. His promises are true, He delivers on them and He wants to know all of our greatest desires! Bring everything to Him in prayer and He will answer them for you!
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
God bless you all my friends!
