The Lord gave me a vision to begin a series on infertility prayer. Following through in obedience to this idea is challenging and worthy of contemplation. Although I’ve experienced this walk, I’ve never walked it in your shoes. As Pastor Levi Lusko says “pain is personal”. I listened to him preach online at the Skull Church with LiChai recently. I went on to learn of the loss of his 5-year-old daughter. He shared the reality of his families loss and discussed in a raw and transparent post “how it is impossible to feel anything except for what we are going through.” His words shot through my heart as I’ve tossed around the idea of birthing these prayers.
Infertility for you will be different – a unique set of experiences and expectations shaped by the now of your life. I honor your journey. My prayer is that you will be encouraged knowing you never walk alone in your struggle. The prayers are offered as a cry to heaven on your behalf….an offering brought before the throne in full acknowledgement that redemption comes from God alone.
But the women, His warriors pray. Know that women…all over the world…are praying for you.
I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord. Isaiah 66:9
For as long as the Lord leads, I will post an infertility prayer on Twitter and Facebook a few times a week. I am learning obedience. It’s both frightening and thrilling to take the first step. I was encouraged by a testimony of faith by Deidra Riggs this week. I’m so grateful to God for giving me this crystal clear response to a prayer.
In the attached clip she shares the experience of jumping out of a plane for the first time. It’s the launching pad for a powerful worldview. To live life – jumping tandem with God as your partner and friend. Hearing her talk about taking the seat belt off in life impressed upon me the importance of “going there” in the form of obedience. So often I hear the Lord whisper ideas and I immediately shut them down with negative thoughts. I stay seated when I should get up. I play it safe. I’m working on perfecting a mind shift, unstrapping that belt and leaning in hard to honor His voice with the actionable step of immediate compliance.
Click the links above to follow me as I have fun on social media serving and encouraging my fellow maidens. Consider ways in which you can take the “seat belt” off in your life. I’d love to engage in conversation about this so be free with your comments and lets pray each others boldness in Christ. Are you ready? I’m ready…let’s jump.
