If God Were To Write You A Letter

I just wanted to share this with all of you because I think we get so caught up in ttc, that we don't ever take a step back and really try to put things in God's hands. We try to carry this big burden all on our own 2 shoulders and it can get very tiring! I don't want to offend anyone who is not religious, but I'm pretty sure that all of us believe in some sort of God or at least have a spirtual side. God bless everyone in their journey trying to conceive! If GOD were to write you a Letter: Effective Immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to make in YOUR life. These changes need to be completed in order that I may fulfill My promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this life. I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I am doing, this seems very little to ask of you. Please, follow these 10 guidelines... 1. QUIT WORRYING: Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry. Have you forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for you? Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way? 2. PUT IT ON THE LIST: Something needs done or taken care of. Put it on the list. No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care of the problem. I can't help you until you turn it over to Me. And although My to-do-list is long, I am after all... God. I can take care of anything you put into My hands. In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take care of a lot of things for you that you never even realize. 3. TRUST ME: Once you've given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back. Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials. Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with finances? Put it on My list. Problems with your emotional roller coaster? For My sake, put it on My list. I want to help you. All you have to do is ask. 4. LEAVE IT ALONE: Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle it from here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger now? It's simple. You gave Me your burdens and I'm taking care of them. I also renew your strength and cover you in my peace. Don't you know that if I give you these problems back, you will be right back where you started? Leave them with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my job. 5. TALK TO ME: I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you crazy. Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I'm in control. But there's one thing I pray you never forget. Please, don't forget to talk to Me - OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I want you to include Me in on the things going on in your life. I want to hear you talk about your friends and family. Prayer is simply you having a conversation with Me. I want to be your dearest friend. 6. HAVE FAITH: I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see from where you are. Have faith in Me that I know what I'm doing. Trust Me; you wouldn't want the view from My eyes. I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to trust Me. Although I have a much bigger task than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your simple part. How hard can trust be? 7. SHARE: You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did you forget? That rule still applies. Share with those who are less fortunate than you. Share your joy with those who need encouragement. Share your laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a long time. Share your tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith with those who have none. 8. BE PATIENT: I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences. You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much. How can you be so impatient then when it takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle something on My to-do-list? Trust in My timing, for My timing is perfect. Just because I created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always rush, rush, rush. 9. BE KIND: Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They may not dress like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still love you all. Please try to get along, for My sake. I created each of you different in some way. It would be too boring if you were all identical. Please, know I love each of your differences. 10. LOVE YOURSELF: As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You were created by me for one reason only -- to be loved, and to love in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself. It makes My heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong. You are very precious to me. Don't ever forget.....

Wow, thanks for posting that! It actually brought tears to my eyes. You're right. I have become so consumed with TTC that I sometimes forget...(see above)

Yeah, it made me feel so much better when I read it impatient. It was kind of like "oh yeah...I AM supposed to do that huh?" And I already felt a big weight lifted off of my shoulders. I know that no matter what, he will see to it that everything is alright in the end!

Awesome! Thank you Amber! Even though He has taught me all of that in my walk with Him, I am human and fail, and still need to be reminded! I'm gonna print that and put it up on my fridge! I love it!

Thought you gals might like to read this too............***** Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried. Quietly, patiently, lovingly, he replied. I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate. The Master said gently, "Child, you must wait." "WAIT!," you say, "Wait!," my indignant reply. "Lord, I need answers, I need to know why! Is your hand shortened, or have you not heard? By faith I have asked and I'm claiming your word! My future and all to which I relate, Hangs in the balance and You tell me, 'Wait?' I am needing a 'Yes' or a 'Go ahead' sign. Or even a 'No' to which I could resign. And Lord, you have promised that if we believe, We need but to ask and we shall receive. And Lord, I've been asking, and this is my cry, I am weary of asking, I need a reply!" And quietly, softly, I learned of my fate. As my Master replied once again, "You must wait." He seemed then to kneel and His eyes met with mine. And He tenderly said, "I could give you a sign... I could shake the heavens and darken the sun, I could raise the dead and cause the mountains to run, All you seek I could give and pleased you would be. You would have what you want... But you wouldn't know Me. You'd not know the depth of my love for each saint. You'd not know the power I give to the faint. You'd not learn to see through the clouds of despair. You'd not learn to trust just by knowing I'm there. You'd not know the joy of just resting in Me. When darkness and silence is all you can see. You'd never experience that fullness of love. As the peace of My spirit descends like a dove. You'd know that I give and I save for a start. But you'd not know the depth and beat of My heart. The glow of My comfort late in the night. The faith that I give when you walk without sight. The depth that's beyond getting just what you ask. An infinite God who makes what you have last. And you never would know, Should your pain quickly flee. What it means that, My grace is sufficient for thee! Yes, your dreams for that loved one O're night would come true. But what loss!....if you lost what I'm doing IN YOU. So be silent, my child, and in time you will see. That the greatest of gifts is to get to know Me. And how often may My answers seem terribly late..... My most precious answer of all is still, 'WAIT!'" (Thank you Lord!)

Oh I just loved that Jeanette! It can be hard to be patient at times and reading this just helps me understand on how much we would all miss out on if we were handed over everything that we asked for at that moment! True words of inspiration!

Thank you SO MUCH, all of you! I have been crying all morning because I got my period. I was devistated. For the last week I've been on this board reading all of the threads....hoping, praying, obsessing that I could be pregnant! I was in such despair when I came across your letter from God. I had forgotten to give it to Him. Thank you for posting that. It's the best thing I've read on here. May God bless you, and everyone of us on this list.

 

Amber #2 - May 7

I'm sorry for your AF arriving Sherylynn, but I'm very glad that you could find comfort in this thread. There is another thread called "The Spritual Inspiration Thread" that you may take comfort in reading also! Good luck in your journey ttc!
