FMF: Waiting in Faith

Joining in for a 5 minute Friday free-write with Kate and the gang

Prompt of the week: WAIT


I can't wait!

I can't wait until I can feel this tiny baby moving and kicking and reassuring Mama that all is well.

I can't wait until this awkward little bump grows big enough that I look pregnant and not just bloated or fat.

I can't wait to find out if June Bug, Mikayla, and Selah are getting a baby brother, or another sister.

I can't wait to be waddling around big and pregnant, complaining about back aches and cankles.

I can't wait to have a baby shower and wash all the tiny precious onesies and sleepers and itty-bitty mittens and socks.

Most of all I can't wait until a doctor places a screaming bundle of life into my arms and gives congratulations instead of condolences.

In the meantime: faith, not fear. FAITH, not fear. That is my mantra for 2015, and I repeat it to myself every time the enemy creeps in and whispers that maybe I can't trust God because after all, didn't He let me down before?

In the waiting place, FAITH, not fear.



  1. Faith, not fear. What a word of encouragement. Whatever comes, God is there. No matter what. Thank you for this! Visiting from FMF.

  2. I like your mantra. Praying for that day when the baby is safe in your arms. visiting from FMF

  3. Faith, not fear!!! I pray that you will stay in faith this year, no matter what curveballs life throws you. Congratulations!

  4. FAITH, not fear. I am in agreement with you. Bless you as you wait! #FMF

  5. FAITH, not fear! I love that. I pray your pregnancy goes well and that you enjoy a happy healthy baby. I have had several miscarriages (first trimester) and the pain is still very real but my kids help me get through it. Knowing that my little ones in Heaven opened their eyes and the first face they saw was that of our Father-God helped me more than any therapy ever did. How blessed our tiny ones are to have only experienced life with God!! Many hugs to you as you walk this journey.

    1. Thank you so much. I am sorry for your losses, and you are right - knowing they are with the Father is such a huge comfort! Blessings.

  6. Praying with you faith, never fear. XO

  7. Oh, sweet sister, I'm praying for that faith to overrule all fear, that God will pour out His assurances on your heart of His love and His faithfulness despite all the hurt you have walked... that as you have suffered with Him, you will rejoice with Him.

  8. Oh, congratulations! May you experience a rich peace as you walk through this season of waiting!
