Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

I keep reflecting on how amazing it is that God does the impossible.  My beta levels quadrupled meaning the pregnancy is progressing.  I believe the doctor was a little shocked. He told me there is still a 5% chance the pregnancy could be tubal.  He also said, "I cannot say you are in the clear just yet."  My thought to his reply was, "You will never be able to say I am in the clear." I believe my fate, as well as this child's fate lies in the hands of someone much higher than man. God holds our future, therefore we will never be able to predict tomorrow.   Alan and I have been on a roller coaster since February.  First I had the procedure revealing complete blockage in both fallopian tubes. Then there was a lot of prayer, asking Him to draw near to us and heal me spiritually.  He has allowed spiritual growth and healing.  He has also given us a pregnancy in spite of what doctors believed was impossible.

We will go back on Monday for another sonogram.  We are hoping to see something this time.  Throughout this journey, Alan and I will continue to say God is good no matter what.  All things are for His glory and for our good.  Our hope must remain in God and our focus must stay fixed on the giver, not the gifts. Just receiving a positive pregnancy test is a miracle.  I really believed it would be impossible for me to conceive.    

With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”(Matthew 19:26)

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand. I will remember the deeds of the LORD;  yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” I will consider all your works Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

Thank You for strengthening our faith.  Let our focus stay fixed on You.  You are able to move mountains.  I pray all fear would be removed from my thoughts.  I know You are able to remove these fears, so I ask that You would remove all fear that is within me.  I also pray, Alan and I would continue to desire and seek more of You.  In Jesus sweet name I pray, amen.

My thoughts are on the Cross where He laid down His life for us.  
Oh Your cross, it changes everything.  There my world begins again with You.  Oh Your cross, it's where my hope restarts.  A second chance is Heaven's heart!

My sister was told years ago she'd never have kids. She has issues as well and within a year of being told this she had a baby...now they have 3. God is so much bigger than those Dr.'s that think they know.

Praying that 5% chance becomes zero! :)
