For me to trust God & go off birth control pills

After my 3rd child was born, overwhelmed with responsibilities, I began taking birth control. I have been having much conviction and guilt about this lately. Please pray that I can trust God more so that if he sees fit to expand our family I will be able to accept it. This would be a big step for me. Huge. Thank you! :heart:

Praying for you and your family.

Prayers said for your trust to increase to allow God to expand your family as he sees fit
Blessings,
Mary.

Praying…

God bless you for being the mother of three kids! I’m sure they’re wonderful little people! You just reminded me of the Catholic belief that the greatest human being who ever lived was a woman.

 I'm a father to one (so far), and I know how much hard work my wife puts in with our nine-month-old every day.  She's trying the 'stay-at-home' thing for now.  

 As far as trusting God, I could use some work in that department, too.  He'll take care of it all.  If someone told me to smash an asteroid into Earth and create the Moon, I couldn't handle that.  I suppose anyone who could do it would be more than capable on any job site.  You and I probably shouldn't worry so much.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
