"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

This has always been one of my favorite Bible verses, but during this past year it has grown to hold even more meaning. I know the Lord knows what my future holds, and I also know that He will hold my hand every step of the way just as He has done and continues to do in my life.

Trying to conceive and the frustrations of infertility can easily lead one to want to just succumb to defeat. Sometimes, it's really hard to keep the faith, especially month after month. Faith in your protocol, faith that you are doing the right things at the right time, faith that if you don't get pregnant you will be okay, faith that if you do get pregnant everything will turn out fine.

Giving into my worry, anxiousness, and doubts only makes me feel horrible. I realized that what I really need (and the only thing I need) is to have faith in the Lord. I know that when I am faced with an obstacle, He will guide me through it just as He has always done. What a relief.

When I mentioned I wanted to start a blog, my husband asked me if I really thought people would read it. I told him that I was taking a leap of faith that people would. And you have. I thank you for that.

Keep the Faith, and God Bless!

Thanks for this post, Tracey! It is exactly what I needed to read today as I've been "giving into my worry, anxiousness and doubts" lately and it has definitely made me feel "horrible" (as you stated in your post). I was just getting ready to write my own post about the way I've been feeling! Glad you had a great vacation and are back :)
