Rainbows and Butterflies

It's not always rainbows and butterflies. God doesn't promise anything in life to be 'easy'. Sometimes things work faster for some than they do others, but that doesn't mean their life is full of rainbows and butterflies. God test everyone's strength in his own way.

It's always good to be kinder than necessary, everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle-big or small. You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.

A sweet little lady told me this weekend that 'You can't have a testimony without a test.' I can't tell you how amazingly true that is and more important, I can't tell you how much I needed that at that particular moment. I didn't tell her anything about my infertility, her words were truly an act from God, one telling me that he hasn't forgotten me and that my test isn't over.

At times the jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be, it's hard knowing my test isn't over. I trust in him that our test to become parents is well worth it, that this not only will make us stronger individuals, but it will make us a stronger couple and stronger Christians.

God wants to strengthen your faith however he can.....and he will always try and remind us he's there still....if only we listen and notice. I think this women was absolutely there to remind you of that! How perfect! xoxoxoxox

Tiffany, I am so glad you have your blog to write down your feelings, whenever, and however you want to. It’s going to be something so great to have to look back on and see how God has carried you through this time!!!! Jeremiah 29:11 :)

Wow that is so neat that she told you that this weekend when you needed to hear it most. And it is absolutely true that everyone is dealing with something big or small!
Love you friend!

Wow! It is so amazing when God gives you those moments - exactly what you need to hear at the exact time. I pray for us every day - and every other person struggling with infertility.
