For so long, it has been (and still is) my dream to rejoice and scream to my husband: “It’s positive! The pregnancy test is positive!” I imagined all sorts of scenarios of how I would share the good news with him, family, and friends. I planned for all kinds of seasons, holidays, and family get togethers.
It seemed my one and only priority had been to get to that point of saying: “It’s positive!” Drain my bank account, put strain on my marriage, question the Lord’s goodness — didn’t matter — as long as I could get pregnant. My selfish heart believed that the only time I would be able to say “It’s positive!” would be from two little lines on a pregnancy stick. I concluded that achieving a pregnancy was my only option to be fulfilled and to truly rejoice. Naturally, I associated “positive” with good, and “negative” with bad.
But I was wrong.
Being rooted in Jesus Christ, our lives and our futures as women in Him are promising, hopeful, and purposeful. We can look at our lives and our futures and confidently say, “It’s positive!”
