Those are the words God spoke to me in 2019. After 3 years of not praying about trying to conceive because my husband and I were tired from the emotional roller coaster.
Our angel, Charlotte Evelina, was stillborn August 23, 2013. Afterwards, we did try again. But the more we tried, the worst our emotions became due to all the infertility issues, doctors’ recommendations, and more. Finally, we stopped. We did not even talk about it for months. We were tired! (Click 'Read More' to continue...)
For me, fear never really crossed my mind when we were trying again. The fear of losing another child. But fear did come as I recognized my age and medical history were not the most favorable combination for conceiving.
I understand if a woman has a fear to try for the rainbow baby. I also understand if the woman decides never to become pregnant again. I think adoption is always a beautiful experience!
However, I want to encourage that couple who has heard God say, "Try again." If you are reading this, it is confirmation! It is God saying if you try again, it will not be like it has been. I say this because when we listened and tried again, it was so peaceful! No infertility meds! No tons of appointments before the actual "trying". Not another loan or maxed out credit cards to cover the meds and more tests.
I admit we took a 3-year break! When I tell people, I stopped talking to God about it, I STOPPED! I prayed for other things, other people, etc. Was it still on my heart? Sure, but I told God I would not speak about it until He did. Three years later, during a prayer meeting in my church -- only the prayer ministry gathered (I was a part of that ministry) -- God spoke so clearly, "Try again." I remember pausing for a moment and thought to myself, "What He just say?" Lol! Like, “I know He isn’t talking about what I think He's talking...maybe this is a message for somebody else." I promise, I tried to ignore it as though it was not God speaking. But how many know when He speaks, He makes sure you listen!
Finally, we were obedient, and sure enough: I became pregnant and on January 12, 2020, we had our amazing son!!
Has it been years for you all too? Have you all not spoken much on the topic either? But just recently you heard God say, "Try again!" It is ok -- God is speaking and He just wants you to trust Him! Fear is not from God! Allow the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind to help you all try again. If not, I understand. But just make sure you are not being disobedient because of fear.

I desire to help encourage and support women during their time of trying to conceive and if they experience the tragedy of stillbirth. When I experienced stillbirth, the best advice I received: Be Human. I hope to help Christian women recognize the importance of being human in order to process our emotions. When we admit we are weak, God is able to be faithful and be God. If we be human, then God can be God.
