  1. Oh, one of my favorite verses.

    If I can indulge and add my own stanza.

    “Though I may never have a husband, no one person committed to partner through life with me, no go-to person who catches the slack when I am having a bad day….yet I will rejoice in the Lord. . .” for He has given me years as a “mother” and friends who show up in unexpected ways and the beautiful hard stretching of learning community and interdependence and asking for help from people who haven’t committed their life and love to me for all our lived days.

  4. I am so encouraged and blessed by your blog, Natasha. I discovered it one day while looking into support for infertility. While my husband and I have neither been diagnosed with infertility it has been four years without children. For so long I have questioned, labored and struggled to understand God’s plan. I still have moments… Times when the reminders sting.

    However, on July 28th God began unfolding a beautiful story of redemption in our home. Two children were in need of a permanent home and through a friend we were connected with them. There have been SO many Moments that have shed light I to Gods plans. I am learning that even if not, God is still good and there is always hope.

    This devotional was just what I needed I hear. Thank you for sharing your story… You have no idea the amount healing God has brought through it! May God bless you and your family richly as you continue following Him!

      Amanda– what a beautiful testimony! Thank you so much for sharing it here. <3 <3

  5. Amen! This echos something I just read in Psalm 73 v26 “My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever”. I rarely comment but this hits home for me. So I say though I may never again be healthy or live independently, though I may never again work, or know the joy of marriage or having a family of my own, yet I WILL rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation!

      Oh, Miriam- I truly believe that God will reward His children for their faithfulness, and every step through your journey is seen by the God-who-Redeems. May you feel Him close today. <3
