About Me

Hi. Welcome to my "taboo" blog. My name is Steph, and when I first started this, I was still in my thirties. In 2017, I switch decades! I am a Christian, so underlying everything I do and say is the Word of God, and the foundational truths I have learnt over the years. This doesn't mean I'm perfect - I am human. It just means I recognise I need God's help to live this life and try to live out His way, as best I can. So that's me in a nutshell. Thanks for taking the time to read through my blog, I hope you draw strength, hope or encouragement from what you read.

So last week I got really annoyed with God!

It's OK for us to do that, as long as we are real with Him... He knows our thoughts and our hearts, so trying to hide from Him is just ridiculous. I can't stay mad at Him forever because I trust Him to have my best interest at heart, for His purposes and not my own. But I was mad.

I didn't understand an answer He gave to the prayer Hubby and I prayed for Hubby's work situation, with what seemed to be disregard for the prayer we prayed for Bubba to be conceived. I struggled to comprehend the timing of the answer to the one prayer which had a huge negative affect on the other.

Timing is everything.

For God.

For conception.

For everything.

Timing is key.

So when a job for Hubby came up, directly in answer to our prayer for work, I was happy. When I realised the work would take Hubby away for a week, I was sad... we have had a period of being apart for four months recently, with Hubby coming home at weekends. But the frustration came when I realised the week Hubby would be away was a crucial week for Bubba conception.

Timing is crucial!

Hubby will be away for the three days leading up to the release of the egg and two days after it has been released, equalling ZERO chance for conception as sperm can only survive a limited amount of time in the uterus. April will come and go without conception success.

It doesn't mean our prayers for Bubba were not as important as prayers for work... because if Hubby doesn't have work, we wouldn't be able to provide the best for Bubba when he or she comes along anyway. God cares more about Bubba than Hubby or I ever will. So I trust Him because His timing is perfect.
