Since I was 12-years old, I’ve had LOTS of complications with my female organs. I’ll save you the graphic details, but it was very bad at times! Several doctors encouraged me to have a hysterectomy. But, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I knew that part of my life purpose was to be a wife and mom. So, each year during my annual appointment, my doctor would remind me that it would be very difficult for me to get pregnant. But, then he’d always add, “But, God can definitely perform a miracle!” And, each year, I would leave his office with tears in my eyes, but with great peace knowing that God had a plan!
During those 16 years of waiting my definition of being a mom changed. I came to the place that if God didn’t bless me with biological children, then I could still be a mom to foster and/or adopted children. I was at peace knowing that God’s plan was perfect. That He had my best interest in mind. And, that He alone was in control of every itty bitty detail.
Well, God is most definitely still in the miracle business!
Because, on December 18th, 2010, after many years of waiting, praying, and preparing to be a wife, I married my amazing husband- Jon Gore! And, today we’re expecting a Baby Gore on 09/28! For those of you doing the math, that means we got pregnant just days after the wedding! Only God could perform such an incredible miracle.
Have you been asking, waiting, and preparing for something (or someone)? If so, don’t give up hope! God is still in the miracle business!
Keep trusting in God’s perfect plan (and timing) for your life! I promise you that He has your best interest in mind. YOU are the apple of His eye! He is in control of every itty bitty detail. Trust Him to lead every facet of your life!
