Blessed and Broken

We went to visit my in-laws this weekend (they live about 2 hours away). They go to a wonderful church and we love to go visit when we are there. In fact, their pastor is who married us. This is also the church that my husband grew up in. Anyways, the point of this is that Sunday the message really spoke to my heart. It was all about being Blessed but Broken and how sometimes God wants us to surrender ALL to Him. I can only speak for myself; but I know that I like to be in control. Of all things. And although I try to surrender everything over to the Lord; I always hold some back thinking that I can help Him. Ha Ha, like He needs my help. All I am doing is getting in the way of His amazing plans for us. So yesterday during the invitation I surrendered it all over to God. Everything: my marriage, my job, my worries, our struggle with getting pregnant, EVERYTHING! I want Him to have complete control over every aspect of my life.

Good morning! I'm sorry I'm just now getting back to you, you had some great things to say when you commented my blog!
Bootcamp is definitely one of the hardest things I've gone through *besides the monthly let downs of ttc*... But like you said in this blog- surrender ALL to HIM! Every day I have a talk with God and I give my mind, body, and soul to him! When it gets tough to do the things the trainer asks, I know that I can do it all because I have HIM with me!
I know this TTC business is hard, and no one can do or say anything to make it better *at least around me, for fear of me cutting them if they say the wrong thing :O)*
All I know is that I trust God and I know that he wouldn't put this want of children in me, just to hurt me! That's not how he works! Everything serves it's purpose- even if we don't know what that purpose is!
