Godsjewel...what an incredible blessing! For as much grumbling as we all probably do about health insurance, when it comes through for us it is HUGE.

You know, our pastor did a message once on what happens when you pray for and wait on God's favor...that it usually is a full-on deluge of blessings. I think this one qualifies!

Do you see the total?!?

Praise God again for hubby's insurance, they cover all the meds for a complete IVF cycle, I just have to go through their pharmacy in order for it to be covered. I didn't know that at first and was going

My total for all the meds is only going to be $137.39

I just had to jump on and share this wonderful news!!! Thank you Lord for being in every detail, even in the financial aspect of it

Praise the Lord! That is beyond amazing! He is so wonderful, I catch myself completely speechless and smiling, thinking of the works He has done. But you've reminded me that I have a Praise Report myself!


I don't know if I mentioned it, but I am active duty in the Air Force. I miscarried my son on August 30. In the military, a pregnancy profile usually lasts until your due date, and then we get another 6 months after that to get back in shape and take a Physical Fitness test. Since I didn't make it to the 20 week mark, I was supposed to take my fitness test this month. I got the email Friday morning (before we knew) and my heart dropped. I was in no way ready to take a fitness test with the nausea and cramping going on. Then Sunday we found out, and there was a rush put on things to get a profile generated to show that I'm "officially" pregnant, and can't take a fitness test. Thank God the wonderful man writing my profile today worked at lightning speed! We did our phone interview, and no more than 5 minutes later, my profile was done! Later that afternoon, I received the email saying my fitness test was cancelled and in its place, my pregnancy fitness class was scheduled! Praise Him for working it out! Feeling very peaceful about this pregnancy, all due to His grace.

Teach Me to Wait--A Straining of the Mind


“Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength;”

Isaiah 40:31


Yesterday we began a study of the word “wait” as found in Isaiah 40:31. Let’s break down the definition we found of the literal meaning of this word.


“A straining of the mind in a certain direction with an expectant

attitude…a forward look with assurance.”


A straining of the mind in a certain direction…It is so easy to keep your mind on negativity during the battle with infertility. It may not be easy to keep your thoughts going in the right direction, but it is possible. How can you strain toward God and knowing Him more if there are so many negative and hurtful thoughts bouncing around your mind? Here are two other Scriptures for you to lean on:


Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”


(Don’t forget that when Paul wrote these words he understood hard times. He was actually in prison at the time he wrote this. It probably would have been easy for him to write about his beatings, rats crawling on him, his being wrongly imprisoned. Instead he tells us to think on these things instead of hardships. Several times in this book, he even commands us to “Rejoice!”)


2 Corinthians 10:5 “We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”


You can take negative, damaging thoughts and place them under the obedience of Christ, Himself. This was written also by Paul, who told you what things to think on.


Use these Scriptures to strain your mind in this direction. We are given instruction in Philippians as to what type of thoughts to think, and told in 2 Corinthians that we can take negative thoughts and make them captive to Christ. Train your mind to strain toward Christ and the kind of thoughts He wants you to have in your heart and mind. It will probably feel totally foreign to you at first, to disallow negative thoughts, and replace them with whatever is good, lovely, right. It is exponentially easier to give in to negative thoughts. Fight it. Strain toward another direction. Strain toward God and knowing Him more.


Tomorrow, we’ll look at having an expectant attitude. I cannot wait to share this good news with you!


-Beth Forbus

Oh that's awesome! Thank God!

AFM....I am off to my first midwife appointment at 4:30. Little bit nervous, I have kept telling myself today that I am up for whatever God gives me. Gotta keep that in mind on these symptomless days.
