Worship Wednesday: Thy Will Be Done

Matthew 6:9-10

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be don in earth, as it is in heaven.”

Thy will be done.

When I first heard this song, I almost had to pull over, off of I-75 and cry. Unfortunately, I was in the middle lane & it wasn’t happening. I didn’t know who it was by, but shortly after, one of my social media friends told me that I had to listen to this song by Hillary Scott. 

I knew immediately that this was one of the songs that I wanted to share with you ladies. Countless times, this situation has brought me speechless, to my knees. How is it that a good, GOOD Father would allow this? Sometimes I feel like the world is moving along & I am still stuck in the same spot hearing the words of the doctor, over and over. How am I supposed to remain hopeful & stand on God’s promises when THIS entire situation looks like the opposite of what He promised? I don’t understand. 

How was it that this song could express how I feel SO well? If you have never experienced this type of pain, then you won’t understand the struggle it is to say, “Thy Will be done.” But, when you have to say.. God, Daddy- I know YOU are good; even though this HURTS. I don’t understand, my circumstances look BAD. They are the opposite of what your promises say. Dad, you said that you would give the barren woman children, but the doctor is saying no. 

I’ll be the first to say that sometimes it IS hard to pray. It’s hard to proclaim God’s promises that he has good plans for you, when all you have is a broken heart and a whole lot of tears. In the words of Hilliary, 

“When I try to pray

All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done…”

This song does take you to a raw, unfiltered, holding NOTHING back type of place. It can be difficult to open up those feelings & allow God to meet you where you are. However, I believe that in these moments, we see God. We get to feel his arms wrapping us in love. As we proclaim that his will be done, we are filled with his strength. As we cry (as you WILL cry) He is able to heal those wounds & carry that hurt. We are able to see HIM more and more. It’s a messy, yet beautiful thing.

So, have a listen. Even if you don’t have infertility— listen. I know that you have been in a situation where you didn’t understand, but had to say “Lord, I trust you.”

Until next week,

(I later learned that this song was written as her soul’s cry out to God after having a miscarriage. Here are her exact words. “She says miscarriages aren’t talked about much. “I also feel like there’s this pressure that you’re just supposed to be able to snap your fingers and continue to walk through life like it never happened,” she adds.

Scott poured her heartbreak into “Thy Will,” a gospel song that is the first single from her upcoming gospel album with her family. She wrote the song in the middle of  “experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage. So it was my most raw place that I could’ve ever been when this song truly poured out of me.”)

This makes it even more special to me, and I am eternally grateful for her obedience to glorify God in the middle of it all.

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.

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 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!!

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

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
