I just found this, and I LOVED it. I wanted to share with you guys.

‎2 Timothy 2:24-25 "As the Lord's servant, you must not quarrel. You must be kind toward all, a good and patient teacher, who is gentle as you correct your opponents, for it may be that God will give them the opportunity to repent and come to know the truth." (GNT)

Hi All
I'm so glad I came upon this, I've been longing to chat to someone on here about
My thoughts and doubts. I was sitting this morning thinking about why I just don't fall pregnant?
And thought I'll visit bnb a bit and hope to find some inspirational story that would give me hope.
Never in my wildest dreams have thought to find this, a tread to share what I've been feeling, without offending anyone who doesn't believe, or not getting a reply coz, not everyone understand, and see the way
God works....

Xpecta, your BFP story is beautiful, I got goose bumps reading it, and gave me new hope.
I've been feeling so angry lately with questions I'm asking, wondering getting more confused....
I believe that a baby is a miracle, a most precious gift from God! He implants the seeds, and form our babies day by day. Also, knows and believes that everything happens for a reason and Gods time is not
Our time! But we (me and DH)want this baby sooooo bad!! And we've been trying for 11 months.... I know other couples wait longer, and that He will provide on His time, and lately I've been struggling with why? Am I not in Gods favor? Does he not want children in His plan for me? Have I done something wrong and this be my punishment? Are me and DH not meant to be together?
Silly questions I know, but I just don't understand!!!

Would be glad if someone can answer my post, maybe help me understand!!!

Thank you in advance.

God has his own reasons and timings for everything hun, its one of the hardest things we have to face is that things will happen in His time not ours and the time we spend waiting is best utilised not in the " why not me " but in the " how can i be effective for him " God grants the desires of the heart but in that he asks that our hearts desires be for His Will in our lives

Wannebmom, I know EXACTLY how you feel. I asked myself a bunch of questions like that. The hardest thing is accepting that you have no control over this. That God's timing is perfect, even when it doesn't seem like it!

That was hard for me to accept. I knew it, but it was hard to me to really accept, and just give in to him. Then when I did, we had a miscarriage. :O I know, I was so upset. Never hit lower then at that point. But somehow out of the darkness, He drew me back to Him, even closer than I've ever been!!

I know you're not going to give up, but try to just leave it up to Him, and just serve Him with your heart and soul. Cause I found that even though its His timing, it also depended on me growing into the person that I needed to be, before He could bless me again.

And that might be all you have to do. Just learn and grow. Maybe at this point He doesn't feel you two are ready to be the Parents you want to be. Or maybe there is one more Life experience out there that you will need to live through in order to teach your kids life lessons.

But it also might just be that simple little lesson about patience. Either way, I've found that every hard thing we go through is a life lesson. Its hard at the time, but you may look back and Thank Him for it in the Future. I'm thankful for my Miscarriage now.
I wouldn't admit that to non Christians who have had miscarriages, because they wouldn't understand all the blessings that came from that. Also, a Christian Mothers biggest hope is that her children will make it to Heaven right? Well, one of mine is already there! There is no more comforting feeling than that!

Anyways, I really hope you get your BFP soon! I will be praying for you! And I truly believe you will! Even if other people lose Hope, don't you ever give up!

Also, thank you for reading my BFP story! I'm glad it gave you hope!

wow expecta you made me tear up saying one of your children was already in heaven. your right, and its so encouraging. i had 2 mc and i know they are in heaven and i will see them soon enough. and it is a mothers strongest prayer. i often pray that all my children will be saved. i wont let myself believe anything different. i have put it in God's hands and i will stand on His promise that me and my household will be saved. i read that to my DH and he said, wow, i like her." lol.

welcome wannebmom! im praying for you!

Oh I'm glad you liked that Blessedmomma. It definitely makes me feel SO much better knowing that my baby is with Jesus! I've even had dreams/visions of them together. (Never seeing my baby of course, I guess it will be a nice surprise to see what they look like when I get there)

And thank you for liking me Husband of Blessedmomma! It feels good to be liked right now

Also, just so you guys know, My name is Krystal. I thought I would formally introduce myself.

Another also, in case you're having troubles pronouncing my Username, its Pronouces like "Hrestya" Its my Russian name. Rolling your tongue on the R though.

Hi, and sorry you have been TTC so long. I remember feeling exactly like that when we were TTC#1 and it took us 12 loooong months. There were a few verses that helped.

2 Cor 1 - God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts us.... so that we can comfort others. Your journey to conception is a testimony in the making that can be used to comfort others (and witness to them) later on. It's so hard, but conception is not His only goal - He also wants to use our lives to reach others, and when we can relate to the pain of others we can reach them for Him so much easier.

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

Hab 3:17-18
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.


Have some of these and lots of prayers. I pray that you conceive very very soon.
