Today’s post isn’t going to be too long, but I feel led to post this today. Sometimes, in the land of infertility, (and in life, in general) we complain, and sigh, and grumble constantly. But where is our faith?
5 We have been made right with God because of our faith. So we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through our faith, Christ has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are very happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory.3 And we are also happy with the troubles we have. Why are we happy with troubles? Because we know that these troubles make us more patient.4 And this patience is proof that we are strong. And this proof gives us hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us. We know this because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts through the Holy Spirit he gave us.
Craig & I, and some of those closest to us, have been the recipients of Jesus’ healing power through faith, patience, perseverance, & prayer. We have to get out of the mindset that the world is out to get us. God wants nothing but the very best for His children. So allow Him to bless you, to heal you.
Isaiah 1:1919 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
Isaiah 58:1111 And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail.
Jeremiah 29:1111 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Ask Him for healing, for help, for blessings, and then have faith, and THANK HIM for all you have and everything He will grant you.
Whether your cross to bear is infertility, disease, depression:
Matthew 6:3333 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Why spend the precious time God gave each of us on this Earth being sad and dejected? Have hope and faith and a thankful heart.
Today we are thanking the Lord for His healing and His promises. Thank you, Jesus, for all the many blessings and answered prayers.
Isaiah 40:3131 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
When the doubt and the worry and the anxiousness start to overtake you, thank Him and continue thanking Him because our list of blessings never runs out – no matter how little we think we have.
Keep The Faith!
