There were times during my wait I felt like my problems were too little to border God with.
God had more important issues to handle not to be hounded by my constant request to have a baby. I felt my needs were little compared to the millions of others suffering around the globe.
I was so consumed with my desires and my inadequacies that I gave myself a timeline to stop trying.
So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this passage in Micah 6:3.
That great things can come out of little insignificant things.
But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall he come forth to me.
The one to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
Bethlehem was a little insignificant town, but was significant enough for the Messiah to be born there.
He who already existed from everlasting came from Bethlehem.
This was a light bulb moment for me, though my issue maybe little, God can bring a great testimony out of it.
You may be at a cross road right now wondering if it will all make sense in the end.
You may feel small, insignificant amidst the buzz around you this Yuletide.
Be assured that Your infertility story is not insignificant.
Your faith though weak and small, is not insignificant.
Your diagnoses thought unexplained, is not insignificant.
Your many miscarriages though discounted by others, isn’t insignificant.
Just as God choose Bethlehem to be the birthplace of Jesus, who is the the messiah,
So too, he will bring something great and worthwhile out of your story. The little town of Bethlehem became a significant town throughout eternity.
As you reflect today, let hope infuse you with vigor. Place your trust in God who accurately predicts the future. He has chosen you.
