Today is one month from the day we left for Thailand. It is also D-day, or I guess you could say P-day. Yup it is the day my period is due. Sorry guys I know, TMI, but with all of this IVF we have to talk about it especially in regards to the important dates. If you have ever been trying to get pregnant you know what I am going through today. The wait. The anxious awaiting of bad or good news. I am paying such close attention to my body looking of any sign of pregnancy or of my cycle starting over again. It is exhausting. When I am not in the Word, fellowshipping, playing with Mac, spending time with Gregg, watching TV, working on my new Mary Kay business, well…. I guess I am really trying to keep my self busy.
The worst thing is to just sit with my thoughts, even with all that God has given me my thoughts can still want to turn to things that are not true or lovely. But one thing I love to think on is God’s word. I loved what my mom posted today on Facebook:
We were not created so God could demonstrate His power to make our troubles go away.
We were created so we could demonstrate God’s power by not being troubled!
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in ME you may have peace.In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.”
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Philippians 4: 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.
