When is the right time to start trying to have a baby? I know I may receive some varying degrees of answers, and I am prepared for that, but I would like to know when you think is the right time...or is there a right time? BL & I have been married a whooping 3 months, but we're in discussions about when would be the
right best time to "start trying". Now that the wedding is over, I hear this question often: "when will you start having kids?" We both agree that the whole thing is in God's hands, and that we have to trust in His perfect plan for us. That is a big statement.
Putting my trust, and all control into HIS hands. I fear failure, and can't lie, I fear the 'unknown' of it all. I feel like it makes me a failure to admit that but I bet there are several women who fear the same thing. Maybe? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Maybe not. I am too scheduled, too type A...I like plans. I need to pray over Jeremiah 29:11 (and many others like it) a little more.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
His plans may not be my plans. Did I mention I was a planner. As in, I like schedules. A lot.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will make your paths straight"
He will make your paths straight, as in He will mark the paths. You will follow Him. Not your schedule you wrote on a post-it last night.
Big thoughts for my tiny brain...
