Yeah, thats Faith

I saw this graphic today and I wanted to share it:

Believing in God when he is silent and does not seem to answer prayers is one of the hardest things I have been through. There have been many times when I have literally been down on my knees, crying in prayer and asking God to bless me with a pregnancy. And when it doesn't happen, I have wanted to yell out "Why NOT me?!" But through those tears and frustration, I have learned that God's plan for Dan and I is greater than I could imagine. As hard as it is sometimes, I will continue to be patient and understand that THERE IS A REASON.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Know God. Love God. Trust God.

Aw, I love that quote. What a beautiful sentiment! And you're right...when that baby comes along, he or she will be the absolutely, most perfect addition to your family. The right one for you. ((hugs))

What a beautiful quote. I know how difficult it is to deal with certain situations and the frustration that comes along with them. But you are absolutely right God has a reason and all we can do is pray and believe in him. I'm sure his plan for you and Dan are big and that all this waiting is worth it. Hang in there and enjoy your weekend =)

That quote is awesome! He does have a plan for you, that I am 100% sure of. :)

You're absolutely right, Shan. God is a God of purpose, and there is always a reason for the things we go through.

It's hard to see His purposes, especially when we're in the hard times, but keep believing and always know that He will fulfill His purpose.

Love you, Shannie!

I love that saying, I have seen it before. It clearly defines faith.

I know how you feel, I keep looking up to God when I hear about teenagers getting pregnant and throwing their babies away and say to him "really? They got pregant, but I can't?".

I believe, too, that everything happens for a reason. If pregnancy is not for us, than I know adoption is. Then I know that right now, my child could be out there (or being conceived) and someday our paths will cross.

I remember feeling this exact same way before I got married, wondering "when will I ever meet Mr. Right?" and ya know what? God brought him to me. So, I know, God will bring us our baby, too. I do have Faith in this.

IS that quote from Barlow girls? Believe I think? I love it!
I find it so hard to fully trust in God's plan and not our plan. And also to understand that they may not be the same plan. However I think in the end when we look back on all of this and we see how God's plan worked and where it had brought us it will be worth it.
