Tomorrow is my next doctor's appointment. I am nervous about going. I fear something being wrong, but it is more than that. I realized today that the doctor's office was Janie Beth's trip. That is where we heard her heartbeat and saw her as she grew. It is one of the few places during her life that was all about her. I do believe that my appointments make me miss her more. It reminds me that she isn't here and life has kept on going. So many hard decisions were made there, and I pray that I do not have to make any hard decisions this time. I pray for a healthy heartbeat tomorrow. But, even more I pray for God's will.
Psalm 119:49-50 Remember the word to Your servavnt, upon which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my afflictiton, for Your word has given me life.
As I was praying I realized that my hope should always be in God. He is the only constant. My hope cannot be in a healthy baby. That will not fix all my problems. The only fix to my problems is God!
These verses remind me that in order to find my hope in God, I have to read His word and hide it in my heart. If I do not know His promises, then how will I know what my hope is in.
Here are some promises to cling to from God...

I will enter the doctor's office tomorrow by God's grace and strength. I never go anywhere without Him! :)
