    Thank you for this post, and others like it. I’m a newlywed and don’t have any children. I’ve had two miscarriages in the past year. I’ve been struggling with this lie, that I NEED a baby to complete me. The desire is so overwhelming to “find my worth”, but your post reminded me that my worth only makes sense because of Gods worth. He is all that I need and I NEED to be complete in him. That doesn’t make the pain or longing go away, but I’m hoping to find some contentment and peace in that truth. Thank you.

  2. So so good for me right now Tashy. Thanks.

  3. I was thinking about this lately too but you say it so well Natasha. I’m housebound because of a chronic illness and with that comes a lot of grief and loss. If I’m honest I sometimes think that if God answered my prayers and healed me I would live happily ever after! I dream that being healed would mean that my life will slot into place just as I hoped and that I’ll never take my healthy life for granted again. Yet realistically I know that even if I’m healed I might not meet the husband I hope for or have the children I pray about, or be given any of the many other things I dream of. Even if I did there would be other hardships waiting to happen. There will always be something to cause discontentment and I can’t wait for the right circumstances to bring me happiness. I want to be like Paul when he says he had found the secret to being content in all circumstances. (Philippians 4:11) Thank you for reminding me that God is enough & in Him I will find my contentment AND to open my Bible more!

    PS I haven’t been here in a while and wanted to say congratulations on your son joining your family! 🙂

  4. Thank you for this! This is a lesson I have been learning this year, and it is an encouragement to read your beautiful words.

  5. This is a truth that we all need to hear, Tasha! Wow, how often do we try to fill our lives with something else, anything else? Powerfully and graciously written. Thank you!!

  6. This is so true, I used to be in the IF ONLY…. group and I realized I have everything I need right here. I am struggling with infertility and I would often pray for God to bless me with a child to make me happy, but that won’t make me happy…and honestly, being on this journey has brought me closer to God and I am happy right now. In the struggle, I look to God and thank him for the experience. In the good times, I look to God and praise him. I’ve learned that He is all around. When I feel alone, I pray for peace and understanding. It’s amazing the love that surrounded me when I am still in His faith. Thanks for sharing this!

  7. Thank you. This article speaks needed truth into my life. The Lord has been instilling the need for continual gratefulness and joy in my life, no matter what is happening in my life, because He is Worthy. He is Worthy, All Sufficient, and All I Need. Thank you for this reminder. <3
