Contentment

I am content. By God's grace, I am content. I have enough. I have Him and I have my family. I don't need to have a child to make me happy; I can be happy and am happy knowing that I have Christ. And He is all I need.

Hi Samantha;

I am so sorry for your struggle with fertility. I too have lived it, 15 years now.

I pray that God gives you his peace, his guidance and surrounds you by those who will encourage you.

The Lord builds a family. Nobody else.

God's timing is perfect. Perfect is his will.

I feel like I am writing a prayer here. But he does know what is best for you. Live in what you have. He probably wants you to do something now that would not be possible if you had kids.

Keep your eyes open and your hands open.

Thank you for the encouragement Shane and Kimmie :)

In Christ-

Samantha

Hey, I haven't dropped by in a while. It is good to see that the contentment is finally coming. It happens to all os us that follow God after a while.

By the way. God guided our adoption search. We got the boy that he would have for us. It has worked out beautifully. There is no love difference between him and our natural child.
