Garden moments

This has been a rough week for me, and it’s only Wednesday. Ever since Saturday, it’s like God has been saying “will you still rest?” Can you hold fast to the Word that I gave you? Can YOU rest, still? You see, it’s an everyday thing to walk out resting in God’s promises and sometimes I have moments when I seem to be falling flat on my face.

The Holy Spirit keeps bringing me to the passage in Matthew 26, when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane. I often times beat myself up for having “moments.” It’s something that I’ve been working on for a while. Every time I begin to beat myself down for how I’m feeling- whether sad, hurt, disappointed, forgotten, etc… The Holy Spirit instantly brings me back to this… [This is why it’s so good to stay in our Word.. so it can literally speak to us.]

Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me. He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” – Matthew 26:38-39

Can I be transparent? This whole encouraging while in the wait…It doesn’t feel good all of the times. Sometimes, I feel like it’s too much. A diagnosis of infertility is painful, it’s heartbreaking, it’s sorrow-anger-despair and more. It’s crying over a child that you’ve yet to hold in your arms. It’s screaming on the bathroom floor. It’s one shattered heart, after another, after another negative test. It’s holding back tears every, single time someone asks about kids. It’s a constant rollercoaster of emotions that I wouldn’t wish on my very, worst enemy. [Now, I know my pain is nothing compared to knowing that you are about to be separated from your Father, suffer the worst form of capital punishment, and take the wrath of God for the world… ] But, just like Jesus had a moment in the garden. I, too, have garden moments.

Most people share their story AFTER they’ve overcome the battle. The testimony comes when the test is over. Not this. This is glorifying God, while waiting on the testimony to manifest.

I knew it would be hard. I knew that saying “yes,” to what God was calling me to do would be difficult. I knew it would mature my faith and character. I knew that I would have moment of intense pressure. Moments that I would want to give up. Moments that I, too, would want to cry out and say… “Nevermind Abba, this is too much! I know you told me the mission from the beginning, but it’s just become too much.” But even in those moments, when it seems like the pain is too much, I have remember that it’s about HIS WILL and not my own.

Now, just to be clear- I don’t believe that God “gave” me infertility. SIN is the cause of infertility. I know that Jesus’ death on the Cross granted me access to GOD and HEALING. I’m just waiting on my natural body to line up with what my Spiritual body has received.  I believe that God is being glorified in this, and will work this out for my good and HIS glory will be all over our story.

But, that doesn’t mean I get it 100% right all the time. I still have days where I can’t quite figure out what to say when I pray or how to encourage my spirit. In moments like these, I am SO thankful for the Holy Spirit [sending me this song in the same moment that my last post was inspired.] I’ve been playing this at home, in the car and at work in the moments when I feel like all is lost. I LOVE spending time in prayer, so maybe that’s why this encourages me? Maybe it speaks to my inner intercessor. LOL! Either way, I know that meditating on the things of God and fighting our battles in the spirit will get us through. I wanted to share this powerful moment in prayer with you, and hopefully it encourages your spirit man too!

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.
