Jared and I went to The Flood church on sunday and I have to say.. wow. Great sermon. Talking about God's promises. The speaker read the scripture that says "Behold, I am doing a new thing. Do you not see it?"
It got me. The fear, anxiety, the doubt, the past, the struggling.. got a big ole slap in the face when I read that verse. Talk about bullseye to the heart.
Not only did this make me think of what has been happening in my life but in the life of my dear friends Tom and Desiree. After years of struggling with infertility,numerous procedures, heartache, tears.. they are pregnant! Desiree' underwent the IVF procedure a few weeks ago and it took! She had 2 embryos implanted in her. On July 28th she will have the first ultrasound and they will find out how many babies there are.
Where her struggle has been infertility and mine has been singleness, they paralleled eachother and it all seems to be changing for the better. Promises God had given both of us years and years ago are being fulfilled. Promises we used to talk about for hours.
Desiree and I were roommates quite a few years back. I had so much fun with her! I could go on and on with stories from that time but I will simply say this.. she is an amazing and strong woman, A dymanic and intelligent teacher, beautiful, courageous, kind, down-to-earth and funny person. She is going to be one incredible mom. Please join me in praying for my friends and their little baby (or babies..so i think). For strength, the morning sickness that she is dealing with, for continued peace and overwhelming joy!
