Encouragement

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. -Isaiah 43:2

How many times have we gone to store, to church, to daycare or even walked through our neighborhoods and encounted "happy" moms? Why does SHE get to happy with her new baby and we have to struggle just to get through the day? What you do not know may surprise you. The new mom at the mall may be able to smile in public, but inside she may be going through the same thing that you are. The cute young mother at the park may be experiencing difficulties in her home and family life that she is trying to escape. The mom at daycare may have just lost her husband in a tragic accident. My point is this: you NEVER know what someone is going through. Those same new moms may look at you and wonder why you appear to have it all together and look happy. But you know how you feel inside. Always remember that we are all on our own journeys, we all have our own struggles and hurts that are difficult to even think about. This article called "Step by Step" was very encouraging to me as I tried to understand this. It is written from an infertility perspective but I think it applies to every area of life. It is beautifully written. Keep your eyes focused on Him - only He can help you on this journey. But keep in mind that He can and will help you in ways that you might not expect - whether through health care providers, friends and family, strangers, medications, etc. Watch for Him for He is there.
