Default Faith tested...

Lately I feel that I'm being tested. Just found out this wk that Clomid didn't work and will trying again next month. My DH and I recently moved 800 miles for his job and not only am I homesick for my family but also my church family. It's hard moving from the North to the South, all while TTC.

Am I the only one who feels like their TTC jouney is also a spiritual test?

I find myself asking God why he's putting me down this path. I know it He puts me on it, He will take me thru it. It's just hard at times.

I'm right there with you in that boat. I know my faith has been in the last few weeks. It been taking a huge toll on me emotionally. I was just thinking of this today:Why do I believe it is okay for me to have hope in another friend to get pregnant,but with me there is no hope? I been through so much ttc in the last 5 years that have left me yet with empty arms. Then the Lord spoke to me this verse:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.-Prov 3:5-6

Let me encourage you to bring your request to God. Know that the Lord cares for you and will not forsake you. Lean on him. Even though we don't understand why we have to go this circumstance. I know that it is tough, but know that our God is bigger the this ttc stuff. Know that I'm praying you through this.

It is very hard to know what to do. One day I'll feel so sure in what I'm doing, and that I need to face these hurdles head. Other days I feel I'm in total denial of the reality of my body.

I love this song:

fertilty diet - down 30 lbs
Several large cysts that took 4 months to resolve
Been to a couple REs (none of which I really like)
Follistim + Femera, trigger, IUI, progesterone supp's
Mar 3 follies, Apr 1 follie, more EVIL cysts, surprise BFP only to m/c at 9wks 9/2010,
Follistim/Repronex cycles result in large cysts that tell me this isn't meant to be for me.

The only thing TTC has REALLY taught me, is how to cry quietly.

You are strong women. Remember that God knows what he is doing and we must let him stay in control. Never lose that faith/hope.

I hope there can be encouragement of the success stories that others have.

I've been trying to stay positive and taking all my fears to Him. I need to remind myself that God is in control.

I need to stop questioning God. I need to count my blessing, not count my problems. I need to tell my storm how big my God is, not tell God how big my storm is. I'm trying my best to do this daily.

Thank you for your encouraging words everyone. I'm currently listening to, I'll Praise You in This Storm by Casting Crowns...it's been my "anthem" as of late. I do like, What Faith Can do, by Kutless. Thanks! : )

Default God's lesson plan

I had really been struggling with why I have had problems conceiving and others around me seem to have no problems.
I believe that God will use my situation to help someone else. He sends people my way to encourage me and He reminds me that I am so much more that my infertility.
I am His child and he knows the plans that he has for me. He is teaching me to trust Him and look to him for all of my needs and not lean unto my own understanding.
I am learning to be patient with people in general and to look at how God has already blessed me and be thatnkful for what I already have.
