Working for Good…

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

This page is dedicated for listing all the good that comes from this trial. According to Romans 8:28, even this difficult trial is for our good, but it can be hard to see. If you have something to add to the list of some good you see in DH or I during this season, feel free to share, and I can post it to our list:

1) Prior to this trial, I had no desire to have a dog, but have warmed up to the idea and currently being blessed by our new addition, and I love watching my DH finally have his wish come true: a wife that has a dog.

2) A heart for others in this trial. Just yesterday a thought came to me for a ministry opportunity to serve other women in this season. I hope that throughout our lives, God will place couples in our path that we can encourage and minister to who are battling infertility.

3) More compassionate heart for others in trials: Prior to this, I admit that I often found myself being the person thinking ” just get over it” regarding people in difficult and long suffering trials. But now, because of what we are going through, there is no room to judge others and how they process their trial. Everyone’s journey looks different.

4) I know that everyone loves their babies immensely, but I’ve also heard that there is truly something special about loving something that has been brought to you through blood, sweat and tears. When we have our family, there will be an uncomparable love and appreciation for what God has given.

5) The possible working out of a long term item in our lives through our counseling session.

And the list goes on…to be continued:

    Renee,
    I am so proud of you in the testimony of faith you have in distributed throughout this journey. As I listened to the songs you wrote & sang (The Reason I Sing, especially) tears streamed down my face. I pray it is God’s will for you to conceive a baby.

    Love you! Teresa
