When I was a young mother with a three-year-old, we struggled to get pregnant again. After many tries with fertility treatments, nothing happened. We earnestly prayed that we could have more children in our home. After much fasting and prayer, we began looking into adoption. Things fell into place so quickly once we started looking into this, that we knew that Heavenly Father was helping us.
Shortly after finding out that a wonderful baby boy would be joining our family, I found out that I was pregnant. Having faith that this is what we were supposed to do, we went forward with both the adoption and the pregnancy. After the adoption went through and child #3 was born, I really struggled with my faith, my sanity, and my testimony.
The Spirit whispered to me that Heavenly Father would give me nothing I could not handle without His help.It was about two months after having a baby and a newborn that the Spirit whispered to me that Heavenly Father would give me nothing I could not handle without His help. From that point forward I have tried to exercise my faith by finding the "silver lining" in even the toughest situations. It is through these seemingly insignificant tender mercies that I increase my faith daily.
