Infertility & Trusing in the Lord / a Honey & Gold story
Posted on 22 January 2015
I have mentioned on Instagram & Facebook that I've received some lovely stories from people who have bought or been gifted a Honey & Gold wall print. I asked a few people if I could share their stories here to encourage you and remind us that God's truth from the Bible can speak to us in so many different circumstances. I guess that's why it's called the 'living word' eh?!
Today's story touches on a sensitive topic for many, but I hope you are encouraged to focus on Jesus today.
I've been meaning to write for a while & say thanks for my beautiful wall art. I'll tell you the story & hope I'm not over sharing
I didn't make a choice of which one I wanted, as you know. (Ed. - When Honey & Gold started we did a crowdfunding campaign & people received a free print in exchange for their pledge.) I liked them all & decided that God could pick one, which may be silly but that is what I did. I thought, when one arrives in the mail that will be the one. Anyway, when 'Trust in the Lord' came I thought that's nice, a good reminder, and it was perhaps silly to think that something would jump out at me.
It sat on the ironing board for a while, then moved to the piano - during this time I glanced at it I guess & it was a gentle word. Then when we found out that I didn't respond at all to the drugs in our 5th IVF cycle I was shocked & upset - but God spoke very clearly to me that it wasn't my thing, I wasn't in control, didn't need to be & shouldn't stress about it ... all I had to do was trust in The Lord! The news brought more struggles for my husband than me to be honest - and I can easily recollect 5 times in the last week that Ive pointed at it & said Trust in The Lord. Anyway this morning was the grand finale for this round & as my husband gave me a hug, over his shoulder I read, Trust in The Lord! I really did laugh out loud. I still don't have the right hooks to hang it but still it's been perfect.
