The two-week wait (TWW) can be the hardest 14 days a woman wanting to conceive can endure. And it’s because in the waiting, in the wondering, and the hoping, our emotions go up and down…and up and then back down. We can turn into a one-woman circus show as we believe with 100 percent certainty we are pregnant with every twitch, soreness, and feelings of nausea. Then, return to doubt and fear the next as we wonder if we will ever carry life in our womb.
Therefore, to keep your emotions in check and your mind from going completely crazy (because, let’s face it, it might), I have listed 15 scriptures that I use while waiting for that moment when I will hopefully see those two glorious pink lines to appear. I encourage you to print them out, hang them throughout your home, memorize them and think of them often when you feel your hope is depleting and your faith is dwindling. Also, I encourage you to read His word during this time. His words alone will bring peace to your restless mind and strength to your weary soul.
We wait in hope for the Lord, He is our help and our shield. ~Psalm 33:20
I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. ~Psalm 130:5
I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. ~Psalm 62:1
The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still. ~Exodus 14:14
He places the barren woman in her home as the happy mother of children. ~Psalm 113:9
He will fear no bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Psalm 112:7
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:2
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you. Psalm 39:7
But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my savior, my God will hear me. Micah 7:7
I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:147
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
“For nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. Jeremiah 32:17
I am not anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, I present my requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guards my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
My prayer for you as you wait–
Lord, I lift to you my sweet sister, and I ask that You do the impossible in her situation. I pray that NOW be her time to have life formed in her womb…NOW would be the time for her family to grow…NOW would be the time for her waiting to end and a new beginning to take place…NOW would be her time for You to show Yourself strong in this area of her life…and NOW would be her time for the pain to end and the joy to begin. Please wrap her mind in peace as she waits for her NOW moment. Give her comfort to know that You are always there and working no matter the outcome. And grant her the peace she needs to replace the fears and worries weighing her down. Thank You, Lord, for loving us, being merciful to us, and giving us hope to believe that all things are possible through you and with you. It’s in Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
