Get Your Hopes Up

I’m tired of not fully believing. I’m tired of saying, “I don’t want to get my hopes up.”

Every time I take a pregnancy test, I brace myself for disappointment. I don’t want to get my hopes up because it hurts when it shows up negative…and I’m crying as I type this. 

Saying those words is not living in total faith. I know I am called to have great faith. I believe it. I’m getting my hopes up today. I refuse to worry about being let down. Yes, I will guard my heart, but God requires our complete trust, our complete faith, our complete hope.

Whatever you are believing for….GET YOUR HOPES UP!!!

  2. I totally understand what you mean Judi. I do this too. Even now I don’t want to take a test because as you said, “I don’t want to get my hopes up.” But my prayer today is that God will cover us both with his love and remind us that he is able to do exceeding and abundantly MORE than we can ask or think. His timing is PERFECT, and when it’s meant to happen…it WILL. Praying for you today!

  3. Don’t worry. I married my wife knowing that her doctor had told her that she would probably never be able to have a child. Needless to say our daughter was conceived only two months after our marriage. You never know when it will happen. But trust and have faith.

  4. I have two family members that tried for years to get pregnant with no success, so both families gave up and focused their direction on adoption. Before they could adopt or even consider it, both families were pregnant. I think the stress and emotions of wanting it so bad it interfered with the pregnancy.
    Try taking a few months off, don’t try so hard and just have fun.

    and we’ll keep praying

  5. Mandi, I know you are a real prayer warrior. Could you please pray for my dog Kane who just lost all use of his back legs. It happened in a matter of minutes. We spent all day at the animal hospital. The vet tried to talk us into putting him to sleep, but I just couldn’t.
