Worship Wednesday – Don’t Worry.

Can I just take one minute to thank ABBA for radical transformation? When I wrote my last post I was feeling PRETTTTTTY defeated. That was the day before Mother’s Day. At worship service, Abba met me at the altar and filled me with so much joy. I left ALL of my burdens there. I left all of my worry, my hurt, my feelings of worthlessness, my fears of never conceiving.. I gave it to my Father. You see, He knew what type of encounter I needed.  He knew how weak I was. He knew my faith was draining. He knew I needed HIM. I needed to worship him, to remember how GOOD and FAITHFUL he is. I needed to remember WHO he is! Ya’ll I have had SO MUCH peace since then. It’s kinda scary. I have never felt this overwhelming sense of peace when it comes to my TTC journey. I know, without a doubt that he is a God of miracles. I will be a mom. I’ve never been able to say that without doubt in the back of my head. Not this time. 

“Little child, don’t worry bout a thang.” [Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7]

“Cause I got you.” [Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28]

Do you really believe that God has you? Do you believe that he hears your prayers, even when the answer might be “not right now?”

I know it is so easy to get discouraged. It is so easy to worry about the hows and whys. How will I conceive, will it be naturally or with medication? How will we afford the treatment? Why is it taking so long? Why hasn’t a foster child been placed with me yet? Why are my level not doubling? Why are my symptoms not matching up? Oh, it’s so much sis. 

Maybe you are afraid. Maybe you are afraid that you won’t ever conceive. Maybe you are afraid of losing a second child. Maybe you are afraid of how long the wait might be. We’ve been “officially” in the wait for almost two years now. I get it. I really do get it. I can’t wait for the day that I get my positive pregnancy test. 

“Don’t worry, don’t stress about anything.” [Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27]

“I’m with you. I’m for you.” [Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all. 2 Thessalonians 3:16]

“This thing’s gonna be alright.” [Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Prvbs 3:5-6]

For tonight, do me one favor. Put this song on and REST. [1 Peter 5:7]  Rest in the promises of our faithful Father. I know, I know. It is much harder done than said. When we first started trying, I didn’t understand how anybody could tell me to rest. But now, I get it. I can be confident in the fact that God hears my prayers. [1 John 5:14-15] I can be confident in the promises he’s made. God isn’t like us humans. He doesn’t fail us, He doesn’t lie. 

I KNOW it is hard. I know you desperately want to hold your baby in your arms. So does your Father. He’s waiting for you. 

I love you so much.

P.S I encourage you to write some of these verses down and RENEW your mind of them. Meditate on them. God’s Word is the BEST thing to fight fear and anxiety. 

P.S.S Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

Working with Raye is a dream!!! She was extremely responsive and helpful. On one of my strands the sizing was a little off. I was able to send it back and she got me right. I absolutely love her as a person and as an entrepreneur! She is definitely on my short list for doulas as well. She’s amazing and definitely is mastering all her crafts.

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

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

What can I really say about this woman right here? She is my shero, my personal nurse lol. When I was battling with infertility she was right alongside  of me helping me to fight and to not give up hope. She encourages me , prayed for me and helped me to loose weight and get healthy for my miracle that we knew was coming.  Almost two years later here I am with my miracle baby . Although it’s been rough with so many scares in the beginning , she’s still alongside of me coaching me and helping me through my fears . I love this woman !. -Jasmine

After years of receiving defeating news of miscarriage coupled with countless negative pregnancy test, as well as medical providers doubting my chances of pregnancy with a history of pcos, my blessing was planted in my womb.  When we found out I was pregnant (and taking a test 10 times due to disbelief) it was very important for us to have support. Raven communicated with me during times of infertility, provided resources and suggestions so I just knew I wanted her to be my doula after receiving news we were officially pregnant. When Raye initially mentioned she may not be able to commit due to other obligations and I was so devastated. Inevitably, I contracted with another doula and terminated that contract as soon as I discovered Raye was accepting doula clients. During my initial consultation call with Raven I immediately recognized the switch was the best thing to do for ME.   From prenatal visit to labor and delivery, my entire birth process seemed so personalized. I appreciated that Raven frequently helped me normalize  my concerns and feelings while discouraging all negative thoughts on pregnancy.  During labor, Raye not only supported me but also my husband. She was able to take over and allowed him to rest which he is still appreciative of. Her counter pressure techniques really helped me deal with contractions as they were getting more intense. Now that I have transitioned to post partum, Raye continues to provide support and check ins. It truly takes a village & I am grateful to have had Raven as my doula, and support.
