Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus

Two years ago we started trying to start a family. We got pregnant very easily and then miscarried just as quickly. So we kept trying but nothing happened. After a year – we sought medical help and I started on fertility drugs and tried a few different procedures. Because of my age – we moved things along quickly.


In March – we met with a fertility specialist from Little Rock and we were told that our only hope was to do in vitro and even then our chances were 50/50 and it really didn’t paint that rosy of a picture for us. I left that appointment feeling lower than I have ever been. I was devastated. I remember calling my mom and crying and just saying over and over “I just don’t know what to do”.


So we decided to take a break. The past year had been a horrible roller coaster of emotions and I just needed a rest. So we planned a dream vacation in Hawaii and I knew after some R&R and the beach – either we would get pregnant or I would have clarity of what to do next. I didn’t have a peace about in vitro and I didn’t have a peace about adoption. But I also knew that I would never feel complete without children.


So in April – not only did we take a break from focusing on trying but I took a break from TV and the internet. I needed to take all of my time and spend it with Scott and with Jesus. I needed it to be quiet so I could hear Him speak. At the time we were doing “Experiencing God” in our Sunday School classes and our chapter that week was on FAITH. I also had been praying for God to give me a book of the Bible to focus on that week and He kept saying “Hebrews”. And in Hebrews – there is a chapter that speaks of all the men in the Bible who had great faith and because of their faith – God did amazing things. During this time – I started to feel this peace and joy come over me that I could not explain except to know that God was holding my hand and whispering “Wait on me – have faith that I can do anything”.

Three days before we left for Hawaii – I took a test.

God is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine. Eph 3:20

I can’t even begin to tell you how shocked we were. But I know how big my God is. I also know how many of you have prayed for us for so long and I will never begin to be able to show you my gratitude.
I have prayed for the past few months that when I got pregnant – that God would get all the glory – and He did it in such a way that only HE and HE alone can be the reason.

I almost hate to share this news because I know there are so many of you who will read this and be happy for me but your heart will hurt because you are still waiting for your turn. I pray that I will give you some hope. I hope you know that there are so many of you that I am praying for daily by name and I pray for all others to cover any I don’t know of. I hope that all of you who are moms will commit yourself to pray for those who aren’t and are having trouble. It’s one of the worst pains in the world to not be able to get pregnant. It’s a grief that few will understand. I know that my infertility wasn’t near as long as some of you have waited – know that I still have faith that God WILL do a work in you also. Please don’t give up hope.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this. Psalms 37: 3-5
I am almost 11 weeks and due on January 13th . We are overjoyed at God’s blessings. I have been very tired and very sick but just like I said when I wrote my post about Mother’s Day – even in my sickness – I thank Him. I am so thankful that God is entrusting us with a child.

We had one ultrasound at 6 weeks because my levels were so high my doctor thought I might be having TWINS! (there is just one!) My doctor and nurse (both are girls my age and I ADORE them) hugged both of us and cried as we saw the ultrasound. It was one of the best moments of my life.

We had planned to wait until after this Friday to tell everyone because that is when we will hear the heartbeat – but people were starting to ask questions and we just couldn’t keep it in any longer. Also – if you don’t mind – I would covet your prayers for us on Friday that everything would be okay. I feel deep in my soul that it will be.

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be." Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead--since he was about a hundred years old--and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4: 18 – 22
I’m thankful that our God still does miracles! I’m thankful He hears and answers our prayers. He doesn’t need medicine or doctors or for the economy to change to answer our prayers. He created the universe – can’t we believe that anything is possible with Him? All He needs is for us to put our complete trust in Him.

Jesus, Jesus, How I Trust HIM
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, PRECIOUS Jesus

O FOR GRACE TO TRUST HIM MORE!

Catherine A said...

Yipppeee!!!!! It is such a faith builder to see God answer this prayer! You will look upon all aspects of pregnancy and babyhood with joy, even sickness, late nights, dirty diapers. The trust journey is far from over, and Friday is just another reminder that we have to trust Him constantly. I am confident that "He who began a good work in you is able to complete it" I loved that verse when I was pregnant. I love it when God brings glory to Himself through us in such obvious ways. To God be the glory GREAT things He has done!!!

Wow, even though I only know you from your blog, this is such an amazing testament to God's faithfulness that brought tears to my eyes. I pray an extremely healthy pregnancy for you and the most easy breezy delivery you will ever hear about!

Huse Blog is it Anyway? said...

What more can be said? I am so happy for you and Scott. Who knows why God chose to bring you down this path. But, you know after your angel is born, you'll look back and think "this was perfect timing!" I was due on January 3rd. It is nice to be pregnant during the holidays!

By the way, I'm sure you are going to want to be shopping for maternity clothing asap. www.kikisfashions.com has a lot of cute stuff at a pretty good price (better quality and price than Motherhood) and you can find them even a little cheaper (still new) on ebay.

Praise the Lord! I am so happy for you! Congratulations!

I'm still praying for you.

MiMi said...

Tears are streaming down my cheeks as I read this and I really barely even know you, Kelly. It's funny, because I thought that in the picture of you at your desk recently, that you definitely had a "glow" about you. You are such a beautiful girl anyway and now you are just beaming! I am so thrilled for you and your husband (and your parents!) and am thankful to the Lord for answering your prayers. He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think!
You have definitely encouraged me and increased my faith with your post. Please continue to pray for my precious little, Faith. I can hardly wait for the day when she shares the same news!

I am so happy for y'all! Thanksgiving and Christmas will be even more exciting!! Praise the Lord.

Unexpected Necessities said...

Okay, I know this is going to sound very weird, but I have totally expected you to write that post any day now. I had a dream a couple of weeks ago that you were pregnant. I also dreamed that I was pregnant with a little girl right before I found out that I was expecting Jancie(and we were not trying). I've had several dreams over the past years that have come true in a BIG way, so I guess that is God's way of communicating with me and directing me in an area that I need to pray about.

I am so excited for you both!!! I know that everything will be fine and you will love every minute of it. I can totally relate with the sickness part of it. That just means that it "took" really well, especially since your levels were so high.

The Garners said...

I'm beyond thrilled for you guys, and I'm reminded once again how faithful God is. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, even through the challenging and sad parts...I look SO forward to walking through this happy part with you now...lots and lots of baby posts, nursery idea posts, etc.! Congratulations again--we love y'all!

becky said...

Your testimony of faith is amazing and now you are being so abundantly blessed for it! GOD IS SO GOOD!!! I will continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Congrats to you and your hubby!!!

Kelly, today is a big, giant clean the house day for me and I almost decided to not get on the computer so as not to get distracted. Boy am I glad I did! I am so unbelievably happy for you!!!

Kelly, I am SO HAPPY for you and Scott! I have been praying for you since I started reading your blog a couple of months ago.

My husband and I tried for several years to have a baby and now we have a sweet 3 year old girl. I would just love to have another child in the next few years- I am putting my trust in God.

That would be so cool if we could have a Blogsite Baby Shower for you somehow!!

You have touched my heart and have been such an inspiration to me! I will continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thank you for the prayers for all of us who are still trying to get to where you are! I imagine God is thinking right now, "Well, done, good and faithful one..." Woo hoo!

Lauren said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! What a wonderful mother you will be. Hearing the heartbeat for the first time will be a moment you will never, ever forget. The thing I love most about being a mom is knowing that the amazing love I have for Dawson is just an inkling of the love that God has for me. I will be praying for you and the baby! (Preggie Pops for morning sickness? Are AWESOME).

twin6045 said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so HAPPY for you. I come to your blog often and love it very much. I know exactly how you feel. We started to try for children the night of our wedding and finally had our son Logan was born 8 1/2 years later!!! We wanted 3 but we feel GOD has really blessed us. He has just been a joy and will be 13 in Dec. I some times think I will burst with love for him. He has been a wonderful gift from GOD and I am thankful every day. Enjoy :o)

Soliloquy said...

When you were pregnant the first time, God was good.

When you lost that baby, God was still good.

While you waited on Him, He was good.

When He restored your joy and chose to make you parents in this way, He was good.

He is good ALL THE TIME.

He just cannot be otherwise!

Congratulations!

Faith said...

OH MY WORD!!! I was at your mom's blog and saw her "Grandma Judy" post and thought "What have I missed?" I came straight over here and saw your amazing news! Kelly, I am praising the Lord with you for this miracle! He is good and He is faithful! I will be praying for you, Scott and this precious baby that the Lord has blessed you with. What a miracle indeed!

Stephanie said...

Kelly,

Yeah!!!!!! I've also been wondering, along with everyone else, if our sweet Kelly wasn't hiding something?? You just haven't been the same lately and now I know why!!!! And I also know why you've just about GLOWED in every single picture since Hawaii! I am thrilled for you, praising God for this miracle that He did, and asking for the same faith to trust Him with our desire for a baby. I've loved you from the minute my girlfriend sent me to your blog. Please consider this a big hug from Minnesota!! Isn't God good??? Now for those nursery plans....too bad Ballard doesn't have a baby line, huh???

jill hartsfield said...

Anonymous said...

Kelly,
I don't know you but have been reading your blog for a while now. I so admire your strength, patience and positive spirit. I too have been praying and praying and praying something...a quality man to share my life with and create a family with. I have been feeling really down and forgotten, but I know that is not true. God is good and does hear our prayers, answering in HIS time. Many, many congratulations to you and your family!!!
Take care...E in TX

Congratulations! Praying for a healthy pregnancy and for a healthy baby. Your words a so genuine and share such strength about who God is. He is the Author of Life, its so hard to wait for that sometimes, but it is so worth trusting Him. I'm so excited for you!

Holly said...

Much love,

Praise the Lord!! I am so happy for you!!

Jenny said...

When I first started reading the beginning of your post I kept thinking, "Is she pregnant...I wonder if she's pregnant!" I had to stop myself from skipping to the end to find out!

This is SO EXCITING! I've prayed for you since I started reading your blog back in September. I am so happy for you and Scott.

God is good and He provides everything we need in His timing.

Congratulations!

Jessica said...

Ahhh!!!!!! Holy Cow!! I'm sobbing as I read this!!!! Congrats my friend!!!! I'm so, so, so happy for you. God is awesome! : )

Deidre said...

Kelly, I am so over the moon happy for you and Scott!!! I love that it happened in such a way that you have no choice but to give God all the glory instead of doctors (not that you would, but that's what happened for me - after having so much trouble, I got pregnant without our doctors help and I love it that is was ALL God and I don't have the slightest temptation to praise a doctor). You are going to be a wonderful Mother!

I will be praying diligently for you!!! Praise His Holy Name!

Marlee Belle said...

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Kelly, over the last 2 weeks with the special surprises we're still hoping for and have been praying for I've prayed several times a day for our special opportunity but I also pray for you, my friend Hannah, and my friend Adrienne who is pregnant for the 5th time and hoping that the Lord will bless them with their first biological child as a result of this pregnancy. I can praise God all the way to marking this answered prayer off in my prayer journal. Now, I'll start praying for a healthy baby for you guys! CongratS!! I know it has been a long time coming!

SnappyCasualGifts said...

Bawling like a baby ready your wonderful news. I have been praying for you to be blessed with a child and will continue to pray everything goes fine. Congratulations! You and Scott will make amazing parents.

Jennifer said...

Kelly,

I have been reading your blog for quite some time. Whether I've commented before, I can't recall. I don't even remember how I came upon your blog, but I loved it from the beginning. You have such an AWESOME spirit & a tremendous faith. Every time I read, I am inspired. I'm a little behind on my feeds, but was just catching up.

I am THRILLED for you & Scott. I will continue to pray for you, Scott & this precious little blessing. You are an inspiration to all of us, whether we're facing infertility or something different (for me, it's something different). This post was so motivational, inspiring & just plain EXCITING!

Congratulations! I look forward to reading more about your journey to becoming a Mommy!

Kelly,
PRAISE GOD for this incredible miracle!!! I have been following your blog for some time now and have constantly been struck by your amazing faith and willingness to wait on the Lord! I am just THRILLED for you guys that He has chosen to answer your prayers in this way! I have no doubt that HE will receive the glory because you all are such faithful servants! I have been praying for you and will continue to do so. I will lift you and that precious baby up on Friday!!! Oh and I can't wait to see what you do with the nursery...I loved the post you did with all the nursery pics :o). One more thing, I LOVE your recipe blog, have tried most of them (and loved them) and have passed it on to so many of my friends!
Be blessed!

CathyBB said...

Here's another silent lurker saying HALLELUJAH! I am so happy for you!

I don't even remember how I found your blog the first time, but I have just loved it. I think the first post I caught was your "hair-u-mentary" - one of the funniest posts I have ever seen anywhere. =) I must admit, I would have been so envious of your 1990 big hair!

When I "saw" you on my cousin's blog (Somer Clark-Day), I thought perhaps it would be safe to say hey as a someone-who-knows-someone, rather than a completely random stranger from Nebraska. =)

Anyway, I just wanted to say that your posts about wanting a child really touched me, and I have been praying for you. This wonderful, wonderful news made my day. =) I will now be praying for you to have a healthy pregnancy - and I'll keep up the prayers for anyone else out there who's still waiting for their blessing.

Maggii said...

Oh Wow!! I am sooooo Happy for you! This post actually brought tears to my eyes and I don't even know you...LOL. But I've read your blog for a while now and read about your struggle to have a baby and felt so inept wishing there was something, anything I could do for you. I will definately keep your family in my prayers....

After a week long break from blog reading, I opened your site and cried tears of joy! Kelly, I am so happy for you. What a beautiful picture of God's faithfulness. I absolutely love that you not only praise Him for your pregnancy, but you praised Him in your infertility. Either way, you knew He was worthy! That baby is one blessed little sweet pea. Thank you for allowing me to share in your inspiring journey.

I already typed you a comment but not sure what happened to it! Anyway, you know I'm thrilled! Even more excited than I was when you found out. The shock has wore off and now I'm just PUMPED! And see....I told you you'd get a lot of comments. I'm still hoping for 300. I love you and I KNOW I'm going to love this baby! I already do!

Hillary said...

I just went back and re-read this post. I guess I overlooked what you said about how God doesn't need...the economy to change to answer our prayers. I needed to be reminded of that! :)

taralynn819 said...

YAY! What an incredible surprise! Of course you and your little bean will be bathed in prayer all the way!!!

Must go buy more baby shoes!!!!

petrii said...

Kelly,
In the peace that can only come from my Jesus I write this to you. Faith is the catalyst to our dreams, wthout faith it is impossible to please God and it is so clear that your first priority is pleasing Father God. You stepped back and looked up, bless you dear one. What a walk of faith you've been taking. Thank you for sharing this struggle and joy with us your readers. As someone who has struggled with this issue which eventually led to a son and a hysterectomy (many years later); I can truly say God is God and He is good. I love Him from the depths of me. Thank you for being such an inspiration to those fighting this battle. Will continue to pray for you and Scott and your baby ~~ Praise You Jesus!!

I have been reading your blog for several months and praying for you and your husband. God is so good!!!! I had tears of joy streaming down my face when I read your post this morning. Your daily walk of faith has helped me so much when I have wanted to give up hope and I praise the Lord for his little miracle for you and your husband. You will continue to be in my prayers.

Amy Metz Walker said...

Kelly! I am so happy to click over to your blog and see your wonderful news!!!! Even though I don't know you personally, I feel so invested in your desire for a child! I struggle with infertility and know the desire for a child well...but I am so overjoyed for your miracle!

I am overjoyed for you. Email me at: mrsjessicamiller@yahoo.com. I have a book that you need to read. You'll love it. I'll mail it to you.

Kris said...

I know you don't know me, I think I've only commented once or twice. We are not of the same faith but I have included you in my prayers regardless. I have an absolute faith that God hears and answers our prayers if we are just willing to put our trust in Him. Not on our time, but in His perfect timing. I have seen this over and over in my life. My two little boys just walked in and want to know why mommy has tears on her face - I am so thrilled for you and your husband! I wish you all the joys of a healthy and happy pregnancy and pray that it will continue to go well for you!!

Jennifer Wiser said...

CONGRATS many times over to you and Scott. I started reading your blog a few months ago, and have walked the same path of pregancy struggles and miscarriages as you have endured. God blessed us with a precious baby girl seven years ago, and then one amazing boy through adoption. Waiting on His timing can sometimes be difficult but always gives us the most precious and amazing rewards. He is a good God, and we are praying that His hand will bless your pregnancy, your lives, and your home as you prepare for the pitter patter of YOUR little one who God created within you. May you have a safe and blessed pregnancy. I look forward to reading your blog over the next several months as we stand in amazement at what a great thing our Great God has done. I also look forward to hearing about your pregnancy and seeing how you choose to decorate this precious bundle's nursery. All the best to you and Scott as you begin this next step in your journey toward parenthood. Enjoy the ride!

Hugs from Michigan,
Jennifer

Congratulations!!! i have so many tears in my eyes, I hope I am spelling everything right! :)

I know that we don't know each other, but I feel so happy for you and Scott! When I found your blog earlier this spring, I had this feeling that you guys would recieve a baby soon. (weird that I felt that without even knowing you, huh?) But all I can say right now, without blurring my vision too much to see is I am sooo soo happy for you guys!

God is so good- being pregant is really the best gift from God. Enjoy all of it!!

My husband and I have been "trying" for over a year and are going to a fertlitiy specialist tomorrow for a consultation. I'm so glad things have worked out for you! Your faith is an inspiration. If you don't mind, would you put us in a little prayer tomorrow morning? It's comforting to know that other people have been in similar situations. Thanks for your willingness to share.

Anonymous said...

I just knew it!! I had shared my fertility issues and commented on how we finally just said, Lord, it is yours and we know that you would not have put that desire in our hearts, if He wasn't going to fulfill it someway, someday and somehow. 3 children in 3 years is how He answered!! It is amazing!! ANd I puked each day but thanked God as I wiped my face because I was FINALLY pregnant. I too remember crying for others who were trying along with us because I knew their pain. I am soooo happy for you and will lift you up each day as your name comes to mind. Take care, lemonade and ginger snaps work wonders on the nausea.
