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!

His Nest

I toss and turn all through the night
And wonder if it’s wrong or right
Is it a sin to say to God,
“Oh Lord, I think your system’s flawed”
Or will He love me any less
If I blame Him for my distress?

My mind thinks back to servant Job,
I tremble as he tears his robe
And shaves his very head of hair
And cries to God a humble prayer,
“The Lord who gives and takes away,
I’ll bless him even on this day.”

But was it sin for Job to say,
It was the Lord who took away?
And in his weary worship song,
Did this great man charge God with wrong?
Or does God only rule the light?
And Satan triumphs in the night?

Who should I curse when trials come?
I search and wonder who they’re from
Did God devise this scary plan?
Or is this all in Satan’s hand?
Is this dark storm beyond His might?
Or am I solo on this flight?

When questions enter in my mind
His word reminds me, He is kind
Job did not sin when he proclaimed
It was the Lord who took away
He did not charge his God with wrong
When he cried out his worship song

So when I do not understand
The mighty way He guides His hand
I’ll bless the Lord for bad and good
And know that only His hand could
Put me through a grueling test
While still protected in His nest

He only gives and takes away
In order to at last portray
His perfect kindness and His plan
To rescue undeserving man
His will, when times are good or grim
Is so we might know more of Him 

20 Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. 21 And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” 22 In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.

Job 1:20-22
