"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"

Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

 I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine


This song completely wrecked me as I was sitting at my desk just yesterday. I was pluggin’ away at work when I heard some words that tugged at my heart. It’s amazing how much I relate to this. I was reminded of how Powerful our God is. Even upon roaring sea’s, rising oceans, desert land, I am still His. In my flesh I may fail, as I walk this life I will fail, but His mercy and grace is greater still. I was certainly humbled, and most defineitly allowed my heart to sing along with these words. It’s these tiny little moments I crave. I just love the gentle whispers, and quiet reminders that He is still the priority in my life.

We rang in the new year with some pretty awesome people. We had some great conversations and some pretty awesome prayer time. It wasn’t at all what I expected, but it exceeded everything I was hoping for! God is most certainly good, and undoubtedly faithful.

Spent some quality time with these two on New Year’s Day. We celebrated Grandma’s 80th birthday! She’s absolutely more beautiful today than ever before. 
I adore this picture. My man is SO incredibly studly with a babe in his arms. Well, let’s be honest, he’s pretty studly regardless! 

I am also uber excited that….. After 5 months of taking a break from Facebook, I am back in the social media crowd. This was a huge decision for me. I wasn’t sure if I even wanted it or could even handle it! FB tends to be where pregnancies are announced, and milestones are celebrated, and women are sporting their (adorable) baby bumps. I wasn’t sure I could see all that and not fall apart, yikes, I just wasn’t sure if I was Really ready. It certainly didn’t take long for my eyes to catch on to the ones who were newly (or new to me knowing/seeing) pregnant, or just had babies, but surprisingly, I was ok! I’m genuinely happy for them and recognize they are tramendously blessed! As a blogger friend said recently to me (via email), 

” I finally realized that I was trying to overcome all of these feelings in my own strength and way.  I prayed and God spoke to me that He would be the one to remove these feelings and help me overcome in HIS strength but I first had to stop trying in mine.  The next thing I knew, I was no longer bitter.  I can now rejoice when others rejoice because God revealed to me in Romans 2:11 that He does not show favoritism and I can be happy for those women, because He will do for me what He did for them. “

These words changed me, for the better, in the perfect time! I am so thankful for her friendship! Elisha (over at waitingforbabybird.com), you are super loved, and your words are so encouraging! God is in the healing business. He said ask and you shall recieve, and I’m being blown away. It doesn’t look at all like I thought, but He is definitely restoring me. I am So Thankful.

Anyway, I’m back on FB and I’m on a mission to make sure people know about Jesus. That’s really all it comes down to. God has definitely been good and He is doing amazing things in my life, in my husbands life, and through this blog (side note: hello 4,000 blog visits in 4.5 short months! I don’t know about you, but I’m STOKED!) I continually pray that He keeps using it for His glory.


My testimony is strictly for His glory.

  2. You have reminded me that my blog can be used to bring people to Jesus for sure. I guess I have just always thought of it as “my infertility blog” and had blinders on to it being anything else. Thank you so much for sharing this and encouraging us all Morgan 🙂

  3. Your post brought me to tears. You are absolutely beautiful inside and out. I never would have asked for this bumpy path of infertility, but if it means that the mess I go through can turn into a message for others in order to bring peace and inner healing, then bring on the bumps and potholes. Love ya girl and you are such a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration. It's time you find me on facebook 🙂
