As I wait for the results of this cycle (oh, I hope and pray that those little ones we transferred are thriving, nice and snug), I have two passages of Scripture lolling around my mind. The Bible reading plan that I typically follow each day “happened” to include Psalms 112 and 113 one day last week.
From Psalm 112:
Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord… He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
From Psalm 113:
Praise the Lord!… He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the Lord!
I’m so thankful for these two handles of truth as I sit among the unknowns, wondering what is happening inside me and wondering what news we will receive in the near future. I have something to cling to in the case of either result. If we get bad news, I don’t need to be afraid of it. It will be hard, and I will grieve, but I can trust God to keep my heart firm. If we get good news, how this barren woman will rejoice at what God has done!
Either way, the Lord will be praised.
