Fertility Journey Pt. 2-Eyes to See

Updated: Oct 7, 2023


There are so many things to consider when you are walking through infertility. Diet and lifestyle, supplements, therapies and procedures, medications, products and gadgets....it can become easy to get overwhelmed or feel like you just "aren't doing enough."


And just because the list is long, doesn't mean I dismiss it. We have done, or are currently doing all of those things just mentioned. Most recently I have gone Gluten Free, and I am surprisingly really enjoying it so far-thank the Lord!! I've tried this in the past but not as consistently, and I have been encouraged. Another thing that we have been re-incorporating is chiropractic care. (See video below).


I had no idea that chiropractic care could be linked with fertility and your cycle. But because your nerves are affected by your spine, your alignment can affect the communication to the reproductive organs, thereby affecting fertility. Your body's nervous system can also be stressed out by misalignment, telling your body it's unsafe to reproduce!! I have been astounded, once again by how God creates.





And in all of this, I am constantly thinking about, how much faith in God is required to trust He is working through it all. So many steps take time, and often the healing is so internal that we don't see the results outwardly right away. Through prayer, we have decided to take the steps we are taking, and with so many voices out there, it's very easy to second guess each one. "Am I doing the right thing?" "Is this even doing anything?" "Should we try....instead?"


The questions bombard my soul daily, and yet I keep having to trust God's guidance, surrender it all to Him, and ask Him to show us the way and give us the courage and discipline to walk in obedience.


Lately, there have been some discouraging things going on that have made it feel like God is silent, or not moving. And though, stumbling along the way, I am trusting that God is working through it all. He's lining things up that I can not see, He's moving in His perfect timing for my good and His glory. How quickly I can forget that. And how opposite it feels. If I'm honest, God hasn't felt good and kind lately. He's felt cruel in some ways, but I know in my heart that is not true. Praise God for His Word, that reveals who He is.


His character is good, and kind and compassionate. I believe that there is so much going on that we just don't see. I'm reminded, this morning, of the story of Elisha, when he prays that the eyes of his servant might be opened to see, what we presume, he already sees before him. The army of God protecting Him. (2 Kings 6:15-17)


So if you are in the middle of your fertility story, or waiting on God to come through in another way, I pray that God would open both our eyes to see where He is already moving. In the words of the apostle Paul I pray this over us both today,


"...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might..." Ephesians 1:17-19 (ESV).

So well said, Kenzie 🤍 so hard sometimes to stand firm in God’s truths when we don’t feel it. I love that line in the song Yes I Will that says “even when don’t see it you’re working, even when I don’t feel it you’re working.”
