While I'm Waiting...

The past year brought a lot of frustration, dark days, and challenges. It was the beginning of our journey through infertility. However, the past year also brought the beginning of a new, more important journey. The beginning of our journey to serve the Lord.

As a couple dealing with IF, we often find ourselves questioning our faith, our purpose and God's plan. It is so hard. I have read many posts from IF bloggers who have experienced similar questions and thoughts in their journeys. I can always relate.

So, I want to share this song with the IF blogosphere. I first heard this song last month in our service for Advent. It brought a raw, emotional response from me and my DH during that service as we were thinking about our situation. Since then, it has become my daily prayer. I want to live my life in a way that glorifies God. And while I wait, I want to serve Him.

As I searched for a link to share this, someone created a video dedicated to those of us facing IF. IMHO, appropriately. So, I have posted that version below. Enjoy!

p.s. Remember to "pause" the volume on the music player at the bottom of the page! :-)


  1. I am so happy that you and your DH are able to maintain your faith and grow spiritually through this time of trial.
    Thanks for sharing the video; it was very beautiful and inspiring.

    Many Blessings,

  2. What a great song! Thanks so much for sharing it. It's so easy to get lost in all this IF stuff and forget the bigger meaning of it all.

  3. Thanks for that. I love that song. I have found that music is such a huge part of being able to get through this.

  4. Thanks for sharing that song...My religious life has always been filled with confusion, but in spite of that, I always feel good and find hope when I listen spiritual music.

    I agree with Brooke - music is such a soother. I think because it makes us realize that others are out their with their own struggles. It makes me feel not so alone.

  5. Great inspiring song, Thanks for sharing that!!! It inspires me to not waste my life away while I'm waiting.

  6. Hello,

    I just wanted to let you know that you have my prayers. My wife and I are still waiting, but have come to a place of peace that if He chooses not to bless us we will accept that. I am also the one who made this video. I am glad that you enjoy it. God bless all of you.
