3 Our Journey: Part 4

After over a year of walking through the journey of infertility ‘quietly,’ Nate and I feel led to share our story in hopes of providing connection, fellowship, advice, and prayer for others traveling on such a heartbreaking road.

Part 4
Soon after receiving supernatural peace from the Lord, I was hit with the question, “Elizabeth, am I enough for you?”  

God does not promise us a spouse, children, health or financial security . . .
He promises that if we believe in Him, He will bless us with salvation, heaven, eternal life, and that He will meet our every need. . .
So from that point on, there were two corresponding prayers in my heart.
God can do all things. 
He can make the rivers part and the storms be quiet. 
He can raise the dead. 
I know, that I know, that I know that he can give us a child.
And so I asked expectantly. . .  
Knowing that He was big enough to grant us the desires of our heart.
Yet, at the same time, I told myself, we are not promised children and God WILL be enough if He says no. So I also prayed that if He did say no and did not give us children that He would fill that hole in our hearts.

After coming to the shocking realization that we were probably not going to get pregnant without medical help, Nate and I began to pray over whether or not we should travel down the road of fertility treatments or down the road of adoption.

For us, we did not have a peace about adoption at that time.
Not saying that it wasn’t in our future, 
Not saying that it isn’t in our future.
I have had precious friends stop at this point on their journey to get pregnant and adopt and I have had friends do IVF 8 times.
But we prayed with open hearts and felt God leading us towards the road of fertility treatments.
And so we started down that path. . . .
