Staying Content...

I know we are to be content in life,but to be honest I sometimes have trouble with being content. I had so many things in mind that I was supposed to be at in life now. Seeing everyone I have known having babies and getting married always tugs at me a little. Don't get me wrong I am still very happy for everyone that does these,but somewhere deep down a longing always hits me on how my dream is not coming true. I have this dream of being a wife and mother. I didn't realize til lately how deeply I wanted it. I always tuck it away somewhere inside and say it does not bother me,but I am finding out it does bother me. It also hurts to hear in the world that people can have kid after kid but yet they don't want them,abort them,neglect them or hurt them. Why are they able to have children but some that would give wonderful homes and want kids can't have them? That question makes me wonder a lot. Just thought I would pour my heart out a little with some honest feelings. Maybe some single person out there can understand what I am trying to say or maybe they feel the same way. I am though trying to work on being content and God has a plan and I will follow what he wants me to do.


  1. You're definitely not alone, hon!
    I'm only twenty and already I've felt this way several times! Just keep serving the Lord and trust in Him for everything! :)
    And btw...somebody posted this link on FB one day it's: http://gracefortheroad.com/2012/02/03/idontwait/ ...it was a great blessing to me! It just kinda gives you a new perspective on some things.
    Lots of love!! ♥

  2. Oh Jennifer, I know just what you mean! It's very difficult to see our peers falling in love, marrying, and having children when we want those thing so much and can't have them yet. I've been struggling with the very same thing myself.

    The Lord used a couple of things to comfort me last week when I was really feeling blue and lonely. The first was this encouraging post over at Frannie's blog "Authentic Virtue", and the other was 2 Timothy 1:12:

    "For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day."

    I always knew that meant my soul, of course, but it also means everything that I commit to Him. My hopes, my dreams, everything. And I realized that I can trust Him to take care of them, because He loves me very much and He would never hurt me or abuse my trust. When I feel sad and am tempted to rush His timing, He gently reminds me that He is able to care for me and He will, if I will only rest and trust Him.

    That doesn't mean it's easy, or that I don't feel sad sometimes (often). But I know that my dreams are safe in His hands, and that they'll come true one day when the time is right.

    So ... I hope that helps a little bit. I didn't mean to be long-winded. :-} Rest assured that you're not alone, oh no! There are lots of us Rebeccas out here, waiting for our Isaacs to come! We can hang in there together!!

    Love and hugs,

  3. I didn't get married until two months shy of my 37th birthday. Therefore, I spent several years on my own as an unmarried women, while all my other friends were getting married and having children. So, I can somewhat relate to how you feel.

    I actually thought that by time I was 34 or 35 that I would become an "old maid." Fortunately, God was merciful and blessed me with a husband.

    Your dreams may still come true, but you may have to wait a little longer. Trust me, I know it's hard to wait. I'll keep you in my prayers. Just don't give-up hope, okay?

    Blessings and Friendship,


  4. we all had those desires..that our lifes be fully fullfilled with a husband children..God is not forgotten about you..he nows..but remembered that marriage life is great but also has his issues..is just a new stage ..enjoy your life with jesus and everything will fith in their place..is a sincere comment ...blessings jennifer

  5. Thank you so much everyone!! Each comment was a blessing!! God bless you all:)

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog and for such a sweet comment :o) I'm a new follower to your blog as well and I added my self to your "kind ones" list.
    I just read your post and I can relate to what you are saying...I was married to an abusive man and I got pregnant but I miscarried...after 7 years I found the strength to leave him...In time I found the love of my life, we have been married now for 11 years but we weren't able to have children due to my medical problems and now I'm 45 and I have a wonderful life but I still long for a baby, it just wasn't ment to be for me. You are so young and you have so much time ahead of you, if life were an easy plan then I would have had my baby and then some...I was a baby sitter for a bunch of kids during my first marriage and that prepared me for not being able to have children of my own. God has a plan for all of us, I don't know why there are so many abusive parents out there that treat their children badly maybe it so they can be taken away and given to family's that will love them forever. Your plan I'm sure is just beginning and in time you will see what it is but until then, live each day to the fullest in whatever you do :o) Hugs Jennifer
