As a part of my Miracle Morning practice, I’ve started journaling on a daily basis. After reading high praises from Jessica, I decided to use the Life Captured prompts, as most times I sit down to journal, I’m really not sure what to write. This really helps because you have a guide.
So I’ve decided to share some of my Life Captured prompts randomly. I hope you enjoy and maybe consider doing the Life Captured prompts yourself! I’ve loved them so far.

//Is there any pain or hurt lingering in your heart right now?//
I don’t even know where to begin. Has there ever been a time that there hasn’t been pain in my heart? Not that I can remember.
What hurts the most right now? Feeling broken. Feeling unfeminine. Feeling unfulfilled. Infertility is an ugly thing. It has the ability to tear you down from the inside. But first you need to give it the ability to have that hold on us.
I don’t want infertility to define me. I don’t want it to control me. How do I keep that from happening? How do I choose joy, choose hope, choose contentment, when it constantly feels like something is missing?
I don’t know the answer to that. I’m figuring it out. I’m learning how to accept the pain, to embrace it. To feel like I’m about to crumble under the weight of the sorrow, the hurt, the pain, but knowing God holds me. He loves me. He provides for me. He wants to give me my desires. That’s the only way I know how to reconcile the pain.
