Let the Countdown Begin!!

Well, today is Cycle Day 1!!! I am doing my first IUI this cycle and I am very excited about it!!! My sister and her husband surprised me a few weeks ago with a blank check to cover the cost of the IUI!! I am so thankful that God put it on their hearts to do something so kind!! And so thankful that they agreed to do it!! I could never thank them enough for doing this for us. We are so excited that we could potentially be expecting in just a few short weeks! As I said in my last post, I have decided that I am going to BELIEVE that this is going happen, no matter what. I believe that God has a plan and that it involves me and my husband becoming parents. I am truly blessed to serve such an amazing God!!

Answers to Life's Questions

I try my best to read my Bible in the mornings before I start my day. I am amazed at how much better I handle things that come at me during the day when I do this. I still haven't read through the entire Bible yet (ashamed to say that when I am 30 years old.....I have had more than enough time) but I have completely read through the New Testament. I was reading my daily Proverb this morning and decided to read a little bit more. I turned to Mark and read a verse that I have read numerous times. But something different happened to me when I read it this morning. It was one of those moments where a light bulb went off in my head and I said, "Yes!", that is the answer. All this time I have been doubting God. That is very hard to admit, but that is exactly what I've been doing. Mark 11:22-25 says this:

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

I have to believe with all my heart that God is going to bless me with a child. And from now on that is exactly the attitude that I will have. Granted, there will still be hard days but I have to know that "If I believe it, I will receive it." God is so good. Some days we just seem to forget that we can find the answers to any of life's questions in His Word! How awesome is that?!
