About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am a Christian, saved and sustained daily by my wonderful Savior. I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitch; we got married at 19! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a co-worker, and a woman that struggles with infertility. God has used this struggle to completely transform my life. I have experienced fear, hope, anxiety, compassion, trust, peace, tears, excitement, pain, laughter, and many other things that come with infertility. But most of all, I have a deeper trust and friendship with my Creator and my husband, and for this, I am forever thankful. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember the ups and downs of this trial, and how my Savior has brought me through it all. For those who have never struggled in this area, I hope this blog will help you see a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with infertility, so that you might better know how to encourage them through these difficult times. I also pray that this blog will help other women struggling in this area to know that you are not alone! There is a river of peace that is found in Christ that can help you through even the darkest of circumstances, I promise!

Bliss & Pain Come From Above


Once again, I'm listening to The Misery of Job and The Mercy of God. I find so much comfort and peace in this poem, it has really been a life changer for me. The most comforting part about the poem today is this section where Job's wife had just told him to curse God and die. This was in the midst of Job being covered with boils, after he lost all of his earthly possessions, including his 10 children. This is Job's response in the poem after Dinah tells him to curse God and die:

O, Dinah, do not speak like those
Who cannot see, because they close
Their eyes, and say there is no God,
Or fault him when he plies the rod.
It is no sin to say, my love,
That bliss and pain come from above.
And if we do not understand
Some dreadful stroke from His left hand,
Then we must wait and trust and see.
O Dinah, would you wait with me?

This is so amazing to me! I do not know how this pregnancy is going to end. Whether it will end in a healthy, beautiful baby, or whether it will end in a miscarriage. But it is so comforting to know that no matter how it ends, God has already planned this chapter in our lives. It is also comforting to know that the same God that brought us the joy of this pregnancy, is the same God that knows exactly how this pregnancy will turn out. 

If He chooses for this pregnancy to end in a miscarriage, and we don't understand this dreadful stroke from His left hand, then we will wait, and trust, and see. And if He chooses to bless us with a healthy pregnancy and baby, we will still trust Him with your sweet little life, because you belong to Him, no matter how many days you are loaned to us.
