Coming into 2018 I was pregnant with what would eventually be my 3rd miscarriage. What a way to start off the new year right? But, I have to say that even though I began the year with another failed pregnancy, I was still hopeful. 2018 was my year for Freedom. Freedom from fears and anxieties that have held me back for many years. Freedom from medications that made me not myself. Freedom from the stress and worry of being able to get pregnant and carry a child to term. I started this blog where I’ve opened up about my miscarriage struggles and this past year infertility issues which is something that still shocks me to this day that I have the guts to even do! True freedom is found in Jesus!
“So, if the Son sets you free, then you are truly free.” John 8:36
Through all the ups and downs over the past two years, my faith has continued to grow as well as my relationship with the Lord. He has taught me so much about myself, about patience, and about trusting in him and his timing. It’s hard to even fathom my life before I had the relationship that I do now with him. And when I do, it makes me sad. Sad to think of all those times I cried and felt so lost and alone, when I really wasn’t alone. Times when I was confused and angry and had no peace at the unfortunate circumstances. But, I can look back now and see what he has done in my life. How he has changed me for the better. How he has been with me every step of the way, even when I felt alone. In 2018, I was given the gift of Freedom, from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am not the same person I was when this year began. And man am I thankful for that. So bring it on 2019!! I could not be more excited and ready for the path God plans to lead me down.
