Infertility can take you to such a low place. You can start to question yourself, your marriage, even your God.
“Is God Punishing Me?”
Listen! God came to bring life and life more abundantly. He loves you so much that He was willing to give His own son to die for you to make a way for you to spend eternity with Him in heaven. He’s not sitting on a throne waiting for you to mess up so he can punish you. He loves you like a father (a perfect father) should!
It talks about in Matthew how our earthly fathers provide for us when we ask for something and how much more would our Heavenly Father take care of us if we asked!
I firmly believe if you have the desire to be a mom that God will give you the desires of your heart. Now I don’t know HOW that looks…naturally, through doctors, or through adoption or even WHEN it’s going to happen. But that’s faith! Trusting that God knows what He is doing and that His plan is ultimately best.
But I do want to talk about the flip side of this; the not so fun side of God’s goodness.
We don’t deserve it.
You can’t earn a baby by being good. There isn’t a magic formula out there that will guarantee you a baby. As many of you know because you’ve tried them all, just like I had!
Ultimately you must get to a place of surrender. A place where you decide that God is God and His will is best. We are nothing without Him. God is worthy of praise no matter what the outcome!
So today when you are frustrated, afraid, or at a loss over your situation…turn to Jesus. Dive into the book of Mark to learn more about Him. Talk to Him. Ask Jesus what His plan is for you and your life. He’s waiting for you, he’s not against you or punishing you. He loves you and has an amazing plan for you!
