  1. “Let him do His work”, look for the blessings already bestowed, be grateful…Your article really resonated with me…in God’s time.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank you for being obedient in writing this Mrs. Davis. In 2022 I didn’t have not one but two stillbirths. I’m married and desire children. My parents are older and have no grandchildren and everyone around me are having kids or even terminating them. With Mother’s Day approaching I feel like I’m in my feelings and this thang is getting heavy. But one thing I needed to hear this morning was
    “ Thank You God for allowing me to live a blessed life!”

  3. Thank you for writing this article Ms Davis! I am single with no kids. At age 63 I often question God about His timing because my heart’s desire has always been to be married and have children. But I can honestly say the good times and blessings in my life far exceed the bad times. And so I say thank You Lord for enabling me to live a blessed life! I trust the plans He has for me, and still believe He is always right on time♥️

  4. Wow! Thanks for sharing your story. I have learned that GOD have many roads for our lives, different than what we have plan for ourself. But in all he provides us with many Blessings. 🎁💞🌻

  5. Thank you for sharing your journey. You are an inspiration to women who often question God when things don’t fall into place as expected or desired. God’s Blessings!

  6. Thank you for sharing your journey! I resonated with you when you shared “This simple yet layered question caused me to question my relationship with God and if I truly trusted Him” I have been on the same journey and it has caused me to check my heart and see where my faith is in God. Like you, I had to start to remember all the other answered prayers God had done and how he continues to provide for me in other ways!

  7. Oh my goodness this is such a beautiful sentiment. It touched my heart and gave me a new way of thinking about my relationship with God. When things don’t workout as we planned and we have done “everything right” the first thing I do is to doubt my faith. Thank you for the reminder to look around and appreciate what my higher power has blessed me with.

  8. Beautifully said…..let me go “sat down somewhere” and absorb this sun while I wait on the Son.

  9. Dr Alicia Davis,
    Your strength to share your story/reality with great transparency WILL help and give women HOPE. Thank you abundantly for sharing.

  10. People always think we get delivered on the otherside of through. No we get delivered when we can accept God’s will for us in our valleys. I am thankful for your deliverance and the fact that you didn’t let your limiting thoughts define you or what God will do in your life. Keep smiling in the sun.

  11. This article is very heart warming and well written. It took courage to share! More than anything I am very happy for your growth. Continued blessings to you my friend.

  12. Thank you for your vulnerability Dr. Davis. I believe these words will help someone on their own journey in trusting God.

  13. Thank you for this very inspirational story. It almost reflects my very journey to have a child. My husband and I got married just before starting fertility treatments. We did treatments for two years unsuccessfully. I had never been pregnant and figured it would never happen. I reached a point spiritually and emotionally that left me defeated and questioning God. Then, I did exactly what you did. I thanked him for a wonderful husband, wonderful life, and the simplicities in life that sink deep into our hearts and souls that makes us smile. I quit my fertility treatments in May. I got pregnant the very next month. My son is now six years old and I am 48 years old. I am thankful I submitted to allowing God to do his work in my life. I pray no matter how a child is delivered into your life that you receive and continue to give the joy of allowing God to give us more than we can ever ask for or imagine.

  14. Thank you for sharing much needed inspirational words. Feelings and thoughts of…Let Go n Let God… are dancing within my heart…BLESSINGS unto You…

  15. I’m so happy you shared your story. I can relate to this due to my own circumstances. I just needed a reminder to trust God will or will not and either way is divine timing.

  16. That is empowerment…mature….faith….I know it’s good to have your own but keep sharing your love with others children….and if you and your husband doesn’t have your own…adopt and it will still be your own…you have so much wisdom and love to share

  17. I love they story. It’s hit home even for and older man being frustrated about God not answering what I think should be a part of normal blessings in life
