5. Seek the Lord.
At the end of the day, if I have no children and have the Lord, I know I will be okay. And not only okay, but living an abundant life. Some days, this truth is harder to believe than others.
When that happens, I recall the truth found in Psalm 23: "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." He knows what I need more than I know what I need. He knows what I want before I know what I want. Sometimes, I have to simply obey and pray to the Lord, acknowledging that He knows better than I do. And on the days when I don’t know how to pray, I ask the Spirit to help me trust that this remains true in my life.
Early on in this journey, I turned to the Lord, but not fully. I was bitter and angry that my story had to be a painful one. Praise God that He has softened my bitter heart and is continuing to show me His goodness in the midst of this great pain.
As I look back and recall God’s faithfulness through the last four years, I look ahead, knowing He will remain faithful. I also know He will continue to teach me more about Him and His purpose for this time of waiting as I seek Him in truth and community. May He do the same for you.
