Memory Monday – Week 35

It’s good to be back! It was a sweet time off and the Lord spoiled me with more blue sock moments. I sure did miss posting on here and reading other blogs too, but I know the break was more important than my selfish desires. Thanks to everyone for sending encouraging emails and comments and I so loved praying over those girls who emailed me with requests. It’s such a blessing to be part of such a sweet community.


Each day you wake up you must choose what to put your confidence in. If you are driving to the grocery store, you trust that your car will get you there. If you are traveling, you trust that the plane will get there. If you ask a friend for a favor, you trust they will do it. If you ask a coworker for help on a project, you trust they will help you.

What or who do you trust for the bigger things?

This might depend on what you are praying and waiting for. Psalm 118:8 tells us it is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.

This verse tells us to trust in God’s word, His promises, and His provisions. It doesn’t matter what your parents told you, what your friend told you, what your boss told you, or what the random stranger told you – you are to trust in God and His word. 

This is such a profound verse for those who are waiting to expand their family. It brings so much hope. Time after time couples receive negative and discouraging news from the doctor. Death is spoken into their situation. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop believing and trusting what the doctors have told you. God’s word promises SO much more than that. I have heard girls say things like ‘well the doctor said this and that’. Don’t you think the creator of the earth, of all things, the one person who holds the world together truth’s matter so much more?

Instead of reflecting on what you were told by man, I hope this verse gives you encouragement to seek God’s word. Seek His promises. They trump every diagnosis given! Amen!

    Amen! I love this! So true- my Creator has a plan for us. He already knows! And while we are seeking treatment to help our situation I do know that if its not part of the plan then we will just continue moving forward because the best is yet to be seen and its unfolding for us now! Thinking of you and praying for you and Colby always!

    Caroline! I’m glad you are back and you continue with such uplifting posts. Looks like during your time off you were blessed with more blue sock moments. Can’t wait to hear about them if you are willing to share.

    This is a great post. The first drs told my BFF she had a 5% chance of ever having a baby. New dr (Jesus loving dr), 1 surgery, fertility drugs (no IVF- her dr does not perform IVF) and 2 years later, voila- LM. Here she is, turning 5 in March. And then baby S, no drugs or dr involvement needed at all. First month off pill! God is so good. 5% indeed. He turned that into 100% and doubled it. I can’t wait to hear the end of YOUR story, Caroline.

    So true about putting trust in certain doctors, and I actually think that is one of the best ways to weed out a bad doctor. If they aren’t speaking life over your situation or make blanket statements like “You won’t conceive without x,y,z…” then they may not be the right one. At least that is how I feel personally. They don’t hold all the cards by any means. They may have tools to help, but God is the one who decides when to open or close any door. I believe that!

    Amen! Love that verse. This year I have been feeling like “my word” is TRUST. It sort of scares me to think how God will teach me and stretch me using this… but it’s all for the better. I’m sitting on Psalm 37:5, “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will act.” Whenever I get anxious or stressed I just try to repeat this to myself over and over.

    I am SO guilty of always just believing what the drs say! Although I do believe that what they have told me is true because we live in a fallen world, I have to constantly remind myself that God is bigger than this, he’s bigger than the sinful world we live in, he’s bigger than the diagnosis, and he is the author of healing, the great physician. I know he can heal my, our, ailments our hearts, our sickness and our flaws.
    “Trust in Jesus
    My great Deliverer
    My strong Defender
    The Son of God
    I trust in Jesus
    Blessed Redeemer
    My Lord forever
    The holy one!”
