Taking a Break
It’s time for a break. I have been charting and taking my temperature for over 2 years now. Thanks to the app I have, it has made it easy, but I feel like lately the Lord is telling me to take a break. Not only from charting, but ovulation kits and acupuncture too.
We know to get pregnant it’s going to take a miracle. We know that miracle is coming soon. He really doesn’t need our help. He doesn’t care what temperature my thermometer reads or how bad or what days I have cramps. He really doesn’t care what time of the day we have intercourse. It’s going to happen by the power of prayer and our faith in Him. I just feel that the Lord has told me to stop. Stop taking my temperature every morning, stop trying to time intercourse based on what a strip says, stop tracking every symptom, and stop going to acupuncture.
This might be for a month and this might be for longer we aren’t sure yet, but I’m just a week in and it’s already been a big relief. I need to spend more time with Him, and less time obsessing over every little symptom. I’m surrendering every last bit of control I was hanging on to, and letting the Lord know, it’s in the palm of His hands!!
