“Before the Morning” by Josh Wilson

I know I JUST posted a song, but I heard another one today as I was driving around that I just had to share!! My commentary is at the bottom :)

Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you?
If there’s a God who loves you where is He now?

Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Someday somehow you’ll see, you’ll see

Would you dare would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming

So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

My friend you know how this all ends
You know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time but you’ll see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory

It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

You can listen here to “Before the Morning”.

I really like the parts about “maybe there are things you can’t see, all those things are happening to bring a better ending, someday you’ll see” AND “Life is not a snapshot, it might take a little time but you’ll see the bigger picture.” I just love knowing that God doesn’t let us go through “hurts” without having a bigger purpose. There is a purpose for this infertility!! There is a purpose for the hard times that YOU are experiencing!! He can see the bigger picture of what that purpose is while I can only see what is right in front of my face. I truly believe that God is working “behind the scenes” to bring glory to His name through our infertility struggles. And that makes me supremely excited to see what He is working on.

My friend and I were talking the other day and she said that maybe one day in Heaven someone will walk up to me and tell me that they read my blog and were saved as a result of reading what the Lord was saying to them through the blog. Or that the blog/my experience planted a seed that later resulted in their salvation. That kind of gives me chills. It makes me think of the old song “Thank You” by Ray Boltz. You NEVER know how the Lord will touch lives if we are open to His leading. Not saying that I would deserve any credit…the Lord deserves ALL of the credit…but He works THROUGH us to accomplish His will and purposes. How absolutely amazing would that be to get to Heaven and know that through my infertility someone was spending eternal life in HEAVEN!! Oh my goodness. That would make infertility and all of the struggles that come along with it so so so worth it!


  1. THANK YOU for sharing that song...i needed that today. one of my good friends just had her baby and i've been struggling with bittersweet feelings all day, i hate feeling like a brat. i read most of your blog the other night and appreciate your's easy to feel alone in this struggle. i'm praying for you:)

  2. I love that perspective! Because certainly, any amount of 'pain' we might experience would be completely worth it for another soul's salvation! Don't I pray that our lives may be used in such a special way!! Sending you love sweet friend!

  3. Jesus came to serve and not to be served.
    We go thru pain not just for ourselves, but in the midst of it knowing that as we walk thru it and see the faithfulness of our God, that we will be able to help others find their solid footing in God, as they make their ways thru their life storms. Hanging onto the truth of God's goodness and that we will see light, and experience a breaking of the darkness, and knowing that b/c we stood our ground, we'll be able help others do the same.
