meganxallen This is going to be heavy, but it's worth it.

For the past 2 1/2 years we have been walking in a season of infertility. When we began the process of trying to get pregnant we could not fathom the depths of grief and sorrow and frustration and anger that we would feel as every month yielded another negative pregnancy test. Early on during this season we prayed that God would lead us to get pregnant and held onto the belief that it was only going to take just a little bit longer. Each month we would pray and hope that this would be the month that we would be pregnant, but as every month passed we were broken down and exhausted by the continual let down of not becoming pregnant. Almost a year ago on a Sunday morning we sang a song called "Satisfied". We were struck by the overwhelming reality of the goodness of our Savior and we made this song our prayer, that by the empowering of the Holy Spirit we would find our ultimate satisfaction in Jesus. It became our prayer, that He would be a greater gift than any child we would be able to have. So that even if we could never have biological children of our own, He is still good. His grace is sufficient. He is our reward. We prayed that He would not be a means to an end and that we wouldn't seek Him only for a child. Instead we prayed that He would give us more of Himself, that no matter what happened we would find ourselves closer to Him.

And the good news is this, He answered our prayers. //Read the rest in the comments//

meganxallen From the need to be understood
From the need to be accepted
From the fear of being lonely
Deliver me O God
Deliver me O God
