Brilliant Fertility Post. Beautiful Fearless Peacemaker. Blissfully Friendly Princess.
I want to change the meaning of BFP. The acronym we dread seeing in our news feed, the acronym we all secretly long to be able to share. We deserve our BFP, but maybe we need to become Bold Faithful People before we get our Big Fat Positive. Just hear me out.
There’s a purpose for your pain, and there’s a purpose behind your waiting. I believe that when you finally hold that sweet child in your arms, you will have figured it out.
Maybe, you need to get your house in order, and I don’t mean painting a nursery. Perhaps, you have unfinished business, things to straighten up or straighten out, before your bundle of joy gets here.
Maybe you are being taught patience and perseverance, two very powerful lessons. Maybe you need to open your eyes to something right in front of you, or other avenues of parenthood.
Maybe you need to let go of all your bitterness? Bitterness is like black poison seeping through your body, contaminating your heart, which pumps blood to every organ in your body, including your uterus. I don’t know about you, but I want my future child’s first home to be one of soothing peace, from the moment I finally conceive.
Or maybe, you have something to accomplish. I have witnessed so many wonderful women suffering from the same debilitating disorder of infertility, accomplish so much good in their time of waiting. Amazing articles, wonderful blogs, and loving support groups. These things would never have come to fruition without the wait. I have seen women open their hearts to other women, like wounded warriors, and watched them heal right before my eyes. I have watched some of them conceive as well, not personally, because that’s just perverted, but as I watched their unique stories unfold. 💙
These are a lot of maybes, but I assure you, we all have our own personal maybe to figure out. I have learned so much in these years of waiting that I would have never known had I been able to conceive right away.
I am a better woman because of my wait. I will be a better mother as well, and I can thank the wait, and ultimately God, for that.
So while you wait for your BFP, look around you. What can you do to make a new meaning out of BFP? What can you do to make your child, that special one you’ve been praying for, Born From Positivity? What can you do to Be Forever Proud of this wonderful journey God gave you?
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
