Hello Yummy Mummys
Yes I know you are still Trying To Conceive (TTC) but that means absolutely nothing in God’s book. If anything he already calls you mummy because he sees the end of a matter before he begins it. He creates miracles.
Miracle babies. I love the sound of that. So this is where we are going to start from…
Trust me, I’m sure we are not thinking the same thing. You don’t get a faith sermon at least not today.
We first need to get you to the point where you still believe things can change this year. Once we get into that mode then we can focus on getting them to change by faith. But first we need to believe they can.
Trust me I know it’s easy after countless procedures and negative Pregnancy Test (PT) results to just shove this TTC business to the back burner and plan to live your life. After all you cannot come and go and die.
I know trust me I know. I’ve thought it too. “I cannot let this thing take over my life” “I cannot handle another disappointment” “I can’t do this again” “Maybe I shouldn’t think about it” “I’m even tired sef” “Maybe my own case is different” “Maybe it’s my destiny and I’m not supposed to have children”. I’ve been through my share of I cannot, maybe and even what ifs so I know exactly how you feel but hey! It’s a new day we’ve got to keep hope alive.
It’s only a matter of time.
I waited for 8 years and for every single day of those 8 years I woke up thinking It’s today !!! Maybe I got discouraged before the end of the day but I still got up the next day hopeful that it could still happen. Eventually my knowledge of the word made realize that not only could it happen but it would when I applied faith. Hope helped me not give up and that’s a very good place to start.
Let’s look at one of the many lessons We can learn from Hannah. Oh! I don’t know why I just connect with Hannah on so many levels. I must have taken her story apart piece by piece in the Bible so many times. There had to be something I was missing I thought. Why am I not getting pregnant? I worried. Till I actually started letting the Holy Spirit read it with me. There were so many things I was taking at face value but Hannah was thrown into the most difficult place to have a baby and what did she do? She had not just Samuel but many other babies.
So lesson number ONE
Look very closely at this story and you will see that Hannah was a woman who understood hope. The Bible tells us that every year without fail every single year Hannah went alongside her husband and her mean co-wife Peninnah to worship God at Shiloh. She didn’t have to but she did. How do I know? 1 Samuel 1:21-23.
1. Elkannah loved her more and would bend over backwards to please her
2. He wasn’t a difficult man. Seems laid back to me. Doesn’t seem like the kind of man that would force her to do whatever she didn’t want to do.
3. When she asked not to go… Elkannah said “do what you think is best”
So I believe Hannah didn’t have to go every year, she wanted to!
Every year she got up irrespective of how bad it had been last year, no matter how many times like an annoying mensrrual period peninnah reminded her she was childless. She got up with silent hope …maybe this will be the year
That singular piece of hope I believe is what took her from the place of maybe to for sure. From “Lord if you would…” to “for this child I prayed…”
This is a new year. Don’t give up hope. It can and will happen this year. Once you have hope we can build faith from there. Faith gives our hope substance. If we don’t hope for anything then where is the need for faith?
I’m telling you categorically that God is not done with you yet. I don’t know how many negative doctors reports you have or how many procedures you have done but I do know this God is not done with you yet.
So let’s agree today that this is the year. Don’t give up. Let’s try again this year. Let’s get up and go to Shiloh again this year. Let’s believe Gods word. Bottom line : DONT GIVE UP!
Okay ladies I will be back next week to build on this incy wincy bit of hope you were able to muster. So just hold on ok?
