God is not a God of 1%, he is a God of 100% are the words my Mom spoke to me when I told her the news. This statement stuck with me, and it is something I constantly repeated throughout my journey.
We had to make the decision to move forward and know this wasn’t the end for us. We had to hold onto our dream and promise of becoming parents. We didn’t know how or when we could come up with the money, but we knew we served a big god so we began to pray for a miracle in any way he saw fit. These are the types of moments our faith was tested to the limit. Did we really believe a miracle could happen? Yes, more than ever.
We signed up for IVF class every couple had to go through to understand the process, expenses, etc. 2 weeks later we were set to attend our first class with 8 other couples. We chose to keep this journey private between our parents, and a few close friends that we knew would bind together as our prayer and support team.
The day of the class I was so nervous still not knowing how we would find or raise the money to pay for the procedure. We decided to step out in faith and attend the class. My husband called me and told me to meet him in the parking lot bc he had to talk to me before we went into class. I was so scared that he thought we should change our mind. I told him I wasn’t in the mood for surprises because my nerves were shot, but he insisted I meet up with him.
I still get tears in my eyes every time I think of that moment. We had received our miracle! We walked into our IVF class that day with every penny of our procedure paid for.
These lyrics by Travis Greene that I sang over and over again as a prayer and declaration had now become a reality
You move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With your power
There is nothing that’s impossible
And I’m standing here only because you made a way
In that moment I knew I was standing where I was only because God had made a way. I urge you to never give up on what it is you are praying for no matter how big or small. Your miracle may not come in the form that you had thought, but it will come in the exact form that it’s meant to. Keep dreaming my friends!! Xoxo
