Nothing is more heartbreaking for a woman than to desire children and be denied. Infertility is a serious problem for over 7 million women in our country. The fact that almost 30% of infertility problems cannot be explained infuses this issue with fatigue and frustration beyond the norm. I know this. Personally as well as professionally. I have felt the burden of infertility. My husband and I were battling in this war zone to produce a baby of our own for almost five years. Professionally, my counseling practice attracted women with infertility issues as I shared publicly by own personal pain.
One struggle many of us with minds-full of un-answers (to our medical querys and to God) must deal real with, is a struggle to trust God when prayers are not matched. I can say with a wisdom and a grace which is hard-earned, if this is your struggle know that Our God who is Big and Generous and gives to all who ask, is always faithful. He is the great Provider of all things good.
However, know during the hurting, it may be easy to give up on your faith in God.
What I learned, and I mean deeply learned, experienced, lived it, is it may be the most perfect time to draw closer to Him. I know God will make something good out of the pain. He never, ever wastes a hurt. Romans 8 teaches us that out of our bad situations, He will make it right. What I learned through the tough times, dark days and finally the blessing of being a Mom, was: I would not allow infertility to be the avenue the evil one can use to break my relationship with God.
