We went to Good Samaritan Hospital bright and early yesterday morning. I was so thankful to have an awesome team of nurses working on my case. Although we hit a few "speed bumps" throughout the day, the Dr. reported all good things. Unlike previous thoughts, it was confirmed during surgery that my uterus is a perfectly shaped to carry a baby AND my right fallopian tube was not blocked afterall :) We will go back for a post-op check up next friday and begin our fertility meds once we get the green light at our appointment. Once again, PRAISE THE LORD, for blessing us yet again. The past few months have been such a roller coaster of emotions. We have been told my uterus was mishapen...so we prayed....We were told my right fallopian tube was blocked...so we prayed. Some of you might say "so what" but those of you who believe in our Heavenly Father know it was HE who fixed it all.
Once I heard the final report after surgery, I began thanking GOD for his grace and mercy HE keeps giving us. Too often, we are skeptical if true miracles really do exist. Yet, our journey has been nothing but miracles that our own eyes have seen. It came to my mind that we have started this journey all wrong. We are so focused on TRYING to conceive that we forgot one important thing: We need to STOP TRYING & STARTING INVITING. The Bible distinctly states to "call things that are not as though they were" (Romans 4:17). For HE is the Lord who gave a child to Abraham, we thank you, & we praise you. Seeing the tears of Hanna, HE gave her a child. Elizabeth who was barren in her old age, HE blessed her with a child. The Almighty Lord is all powerful and merciful. There is no limit to what he can do. If we WOULD JUST pray wholeheartedly with faith, HE will bless us. So, we decided to stop trying and started inviting a child into our lives however the LORD determines fit. We must wait patiently for God to work his divine plan in our lives. And MOST importantly, we have to accept God’s Holy will and surrender our lives to God.
Our prayer now is as follows: "Father, in Jesus' name, we thank You for our unborn child. We will treasure this child as a gift from You. For we know, Our child will be created in Your image, perfectly healthy and complete. You have known our child since conception and know the path he/she will take with his/her life. We ask Your blessing upon him/her and stand and believe in his/her salvation through Jesus Christ.
When You created man and woman, You called them blessed and crowned them with glory and honor. It is in You, Father, that our child will live and move, and have his/her being. He/she is Your offspring and will come to worship and praise You.
Heavenly Father, We thank and praise You for the great things You have done and are continuing to do. We are in awe at the miracle of life You're going to place inside of me. Thank You! Amen.
